Amalia is a widely cross-cultural name, heard from Italy to Romania, Germany to Spain to Scandinavia. The current heir to the Dutch throne is Princess Catharina-Amalia of Orange. It can be pronounced ah-MAH-lee-a or ah-mah-LEE-a. Like Amelia and Emilia, this name is likely to continue to climb.

Amalia's popularity was spread in eighteenth century Europe due to the fame of Anna Amalia, a Duchess who was a great patron of the arts.

Amalia would make a lovely and more distinctive alternative to Amelia. Another spelling variation is Amalya.
