This is a beautiful name! If I still wanted to be a paleontologist and I had a daughter, I might use this for her.

I have always really liked this name. It sounds beautiful, cute yet sophisticated, and easily adaptable with nicknames and variations. I also love the tie to geography, history, and evolutionary science.

canaryrose Says:


My middle name is Cambria!

maibritt Says:


I love that you could use the nicknames Cami and Bria. Cami is also a very cute nickname, so I like that Cambria sounds a little more grown up.

EllaYu Says:


I keep associating it with an early geological period in earth's history. That's not necessarily a bad thing.

Though at 997 on the list, I'd say we're not about to see a Cambrian Explosion anytime soon.

You can laugh.

My daughters name is Cambria, she's 25 now and loves her name. She literally gets compliments on it several times a week. We pronounce it came-brea. Recently a cousin and a friend asked her if they could use her name! They both went with Camryn instead which I think is super cute too. We have met 2 other Cambria's in the town where we live, most people have not heard of it yet. There is a town, Cambria California, thats how I got the idea for this name.

Is the pronunciation of this CAM-bree-uh (Like the band Coheed and Cambria--with the first a being short like the a in "at") I am wondering because I hear the Cambrian time period pronounced CAME-bree-an (with the first a being long like the word "came")
