What are your thoughts on [name_u]Cataleya[/name_u] (cat-uh-LAY-uh) please?

Is it too [name_f]Zoe[/name_f] Saldana in Colombiana?

Never heard it before, but I love it. It’s very unexpected and unique but without losing it’s beauty.

I love [name_u]Cataleya[/name_u]! I’ve never seen or heard of that movie before, but I think it’s such a stunning and unique name. It would easily be in my first name contenders if my significant other was on board lol. I do find the “y” as a bit of a put-off, but not a deal breaker!

I loved her in that movie! Made me fall in love with the name and [name_u]Cataleya[/name_u] was on my list for the longest time. I love that it’s a flower name and you could get a few cute nicknames out of it :blush:

It’s a pretty floral name! Never seen that movie. According to Nameberry [name_u]Cataleya[/name_u] is pronounced Cat-uh-lee-uh :slightly_smiling_face:

I like it. I agree with the previous posters, it’s very mellifluous.

I’ve never seen the movie, and I’ve only seen this name two or three times on the forums recently, but it has a gorgeous sound! Sounds very pretty and regal. I think the pronunciation is quite intuitive so that shouldn’t be a problem either. I like it!

I like [name_u]Cataleya[/name_u]! [name_f]My[/name_f] cousin named her baby Kataleia pronounced exactly the same. I don’t think it’s too [name_f]Zoe[/name_f] Saldana! I know it’s a real name but it does sound a bit like a smushed or made up name. I think I just need more exposure to it to get that feeling out, but it is very cute.

Thanks guys :blush: I’m surprised most don’t know the movie, [name_u]Cataleya[/name_u] climbed the charts because of Colombiana! [name_f]Glad[/name_f] it isn’t people’s first thought.

[name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_u]Cataleya[/name_u]. Its a very unique choice and i would use it to honor a deceased family member of mine who died as a teenager due to an overdose - her name was [name_f]Catalina[/name_f]
