    Hey everyone,
    My Daughter is called Amelia and we went to In Laws for Xmas eve and she received a present from a family friend who spelt her name Amaliya. Just thought it was such a strange but gorgeous way of spelling it! Thought i'd write a post in case it can help anyone out. If we hadnt already had an Amelia i'd be spelling it this way! lol x

    I'm not keen on it. The spelling looks really odd. I like Amelia spelled properly.

    I would pronounce that completely differently (like Ama-lee-yah) if I saw that written somewhere.
    Personally, I wouldn't mess with the traditional spelling of a well known name. It may look interesting, or 'unique', but means your child will have a life of correcting people when they mis-spell, or mis-pronounce their name.

    Trust me - I've lived it. The novelty wears off :)

    I was considering Amalia, shortened to Mali (Molly). I think the spelling/pronunciation might get awkward though. I knew a girl with that name once, but no idea if she had problems with her name pronuciation. I think she generally went by Malia anyhow.

    I have a good friend called Amelia and I would think Amelia and Amalia/Amaliya were different names altogether.

    I wouldn't pronounce Amaliya as Amelia tbh.

    It looks like Ah-ma-lie-ya, whereas Amelia is Ah-mee-lia
