- Personal experiences with the name Majella
My mother named me Majella for the reasons given after having a miscarriage and a threatened one with me. My Mother gave her word that if she had a safe delivery she would call a boy Gerard and a girl Majella. As "J" is silent in Italian my name Majella is pronounced "Myella"which is softer. People were always pronouncing the J when it is written so I have altered my spelling to Maiella. I love my name so many people compliment me on it.
