Comments and insights on the name Valeria: | Edit

Beautiful name! reminds me of a model! I think it belongs to a strong, outgoing girl.

Personally, it sounds like an STD to me. But I knew a Valeria in college who was a smart and had a lot of character.

I always pronounced it vah-la-REE-ah, because vah-LAY-ree-ah kinda sounds like Malaria, which is a disease. ^^^

I have a friend named Valeria, it's said Val-leer-ree-ah, like in Game of Thrones, but usually goes by Ria (Ree-ah)
