Personal experiences with the name Antonia: | Edit

My name is Antonia and I absolutely love it, for it comes with a delicate yet strong sound. Also people don't have trouble spelling it. The only problem I have had is that sometimes people write or hear Antonio instead of Antonia.

One of my best friends is called Antonia, we call her Toni for short.

My name is Antonia, I was always called Toni but wished I'd grown up Antonia. In my family they pronounced it An-ta-nia or An-doh-nia because we are Greek. But in school I always had my named mispronounced and sometimes as Antonio, it still happens as an adult sometimes, which is my only complaint a lifetime of correcting and saying just call me Toni. Honestly I do feel it is a beautiful name.
