- Comments and insights on the name Melania: | Edit
Hello! I had a friend named Melania from Hungry. She has to be one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen up close. She has blue eyes, long blonde hair and is very healthy. She is a cardiac nurse and is very smart and non-judgemental. I loved the name before I met her-as Donald Trump's wife (Melania) was so beautiful. I must say this: Melania never goes by her name- she calls herself "Melanie" because she says no one ever says it right and she wants to make it easy on everyone. People also call her "Mel" which is why I will not name my baby after her.
- Personal experiences with the name Melania: | Edit
Expecting our 6th baby, her name will be Melania Yesenia LeLiana... Lani for short. We also have Jazmín Yaritza Navejah, Carlos Diangelo Javier, Zuleika Béllén Maari, Elonzo Lorenzo Geovani Luciano, and Mnemozyne Naima Niamora. I think Melania is an ethnic and unique and beautiful name, without being too strange or complicated.
