- Comments and insights on the name Demelza: | Edit
I love love love this name... Partly because it's mine but mainly because of how the name sounds when spoken correctly! It's original and unique and automatically ensures that people will remember you. It took me the best part of my teen years to become comfortable with my name but when i did it delivered some great moments such as hilarity at how some people pronounce my name and the look of confusion on their face when they try to get their tongue around it. Then there are the people who get it immediatley and love it... just like me!!! So I would love to give a massive shout out to my Mam for giving me such a great, beautiful, strong, unique name. Thank You Mam xxxx
