Comments and insights on the name Alma: | Edit

Alma is the name of two Book of Mormon prophets. The use of Alma as a boy's name will be found almost exclusively in Latter-day Saint communities for this reason.

Personal experiences with the name Alma: | Edit

In most communities, Alma is unquestionably a girl's name. In Latter-day Saint communities, it is more often encountered as a boy's name.

One must wonder whether this causes trouble to the boys as they get older and encounter more and more expectation of them being girls from the wider world.

In at least one case I know of, an Alma chose to go by his (also unusual) middle name instead, just to stop being thought of as a girl when he emailed people.
