Not naming any babies, I'm just curious. This name has sort of captured my heart recently, when I had never given it a second thought before.

It was probably inspired by Latin almus "nourishing". It also coincides with the Spanish word meaning "the soul".

I think it's pretty. I have an aunt with the name. She goes by Harry though

I love the sound of a name with an -ma ending. Just seems so buttery soft. I love Paloma for that reason. Our last name starts with Ma- so, unfortunately, I can't use them.

My initial thought is that I don't like it. But I could warm up to it, esp after hearing the meaning.
