    It's actually Cornish, and DH and I both have British Isles heritage. The nickname I love with it is Demi. I love Demetria with the nickname Demi as well but DH has vetoed that one.

    I think that it is usable, I just don't think that it is a very pretty name.

    Well, it's not my favorite, but when I read in the profile that someone named the heroine of their book series Demelza I could totally see her: a quirky but confident girl.
    Names I enjoy:

    Girls: Lucy, Elena, Lake, Sylvie

    Boys: Jack, Eamon, Sylvan, Theo

    It reminds me of names like Dorcas and Bertha and Gladys. It just feels exceptionally old fashioned.
    I personally don't like it, but it's not horrific.

    I love Demelza! I've never considered it unusable at all, but maybe it depends on where you are. Here in the UK I actually know a Demelza, plus the hugely successful Poldark books/series has made it much more familiar. It has great nn options (I love Elza the best, I think), a great literary reference, and - in my opinion - a beautiful sound. Also, it's the name of a hamlet in beautiful Cornwall.
