My daughter's called Mali. But pronounced Mahli. Like the country. I've never met another.

Both are nice smile

I really like Mali.

I'm in England and know a Mali, it's a very pretty name.

GuinessPunch Thu 09-Mar-17 14:39:45

I know a mali to rhyme with halle.
What about malia

ClaryIsTheBest Thu 09-Mar-17 14:43:13

Btw, I'd pronounce Mali as Muh-Lee. Very similar to mummy, now that I think about it. Oops?

Maybe Seren or Malia would be a better choice...

I'd go for Mali but I live in Wales and we have loads of Serens. A few Malis but not so many.

I love Mali (pronounced Mally). I'm Welsh :-)

I would assume that a child called Mali had some connection with the country. Maybe Molly (English version) or Malia like Guiness suggested

LadyGiraffe123 Thu 09-Mar-17 14:45:48

I thought Mali was pronounced Mah- Lee?

twocockers Thu 09-Mar-17 14:46:25

I'd say it was Marley

junemami Thu 09-Mar-17 14:46:43

Mali, or Mabli. Not Seren.

StandAndBeCounted Thu 09-Mar-17 14:53:25

That's how we pronounce it OP, but I thought the welsh version was pronounced Mally. Because she gets that a lot

confusedandemployed Thu 09-Mar-17 14:54:53

Stand Yo ure right. It is pronounced Mally.

VoldemortsMissus Thu 09-Mar-17 14:58:15

I'm a Mali & I love my name.

If I was a boy I'd have been Marley.

I pronounce it Marley. Be prepared for people to put an 'r' in it though! Like Marli!

Ps. I don't know any other Mali's 🙈

ThoraGruntwhistle Thu 09-Mar-17 15:26:27

I thought the welsh name Mali rhymed with Sally confused I much prefer Seren though, it's lovely.

Though Meredith is my favourite Welsh girl's name followed by Bronwen.

MumofChuckie Thu 09-Mar-17 16:09:10

My baby is half Welsh living in London and is called Mabli - means 'loved one'

Malia's a really tacky pisshead resort in Crete or somewhere, don't use that
