Your comment was deleted along with an entire thread that got overheated as it didn't make sense out of context.

Why was my comment deleted? All I was saying is that I like the name and thought it made a beautiful choice for someone who chose the name for her daughter. I'll say it again. Personally, I really like Urraca. It's unusual but fairly easy to pronounce and I like the meaning too.

The only appropriate use for this name would be for a villain/antagonist/sinister character in a game or work of fiction.

I don't think people express hatred towards a name and internally think "that's a beautiful name." Its generally the other way around...

A nice name but a child destined to a life of "What's your name?" "Urraca" "Sorry what?" and "How do you spell that?"

I really try to be open about names, but I can honestly say that this is the ugliest name I've ever heard. Though Cosima is a close second.

I've seen this name pop up while playing Crusader Kings 2, and I like the meaning (magpies are so cool!), but... ugh. Sounds like urticaria to me- I'm itching just looking at it.

For some reason, this name reminds me of a urinary tract infection.

Unflattering spelling with an unflattering meaning.

I know it was just the closest.
I'd suggest Ursula but i'm not a fan of that either.

They're pronounced differently. oo-RAKH-ah, with a strong R. Erica is soft and gentle, Urraca is hard and sounds very rude...

Yessica Says:

May I suggest Erica?
