- it's very femenine and full of grace and poise. It reminds me so much of ballet but also makes me smell the crisp, fresh smell of costa rica.
- This name is, I believe, of Spanish origin: has the meaning 'dove'. There is a Paloma Avenue I used to live near. I also recall reading an article about someone named Paloma Picasso. The alliterative PP was very elegant and memorable. Paloma works well as a middle name and as a soft sounding, feminine first name. If your child is peaceful and dovelike, this could be a good name.
- Paloma Amelie: Paloma means dove, and I think that is beautiful, and a subtle reference to a wish for peace. It is a Spanish name, and the name of Picasso's daughter...the Picasso part isn't exactly a turnon, but the fact that it automatically associates the name with artists is nice, as my Spanish speaking husband and I met at art school. Amelie is a great substitute for the cute (too cute?) and overused Emily. It sounds a bit exotic, but not so much that it sounds pretentious.
Paloma is the Spanish word for "dove."
