...nn Emme?

MikeLitoris Sat 24-Nov-12 17:48:23

My dad used to call me Emmaline (names Emma).

Its lovely.

Bunbaker Sat 24-Nov-12 17:37:24

Oh right grin

Lovely name. Very strong.

We also wanted the nickname, Emme and named our DD, Emilia with Emmie as a nickname. Beware though - often misheard as Amy or Emily.

I also liked Emmanuel.

lots of pritt stick involved too

every time I hear "I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen" I imagine him working on a huge star made of cane and tinfoil to present to Emma-Emmaline

Bunbaker Sat 24-Nov-12 13:09:36

confused

I know an Emmalene. She was named Emmaline originally but kept getting called Emma-line.

Love it but not the kind of name DH would go for. He think Elizabeth is 'too posh'! smile

FivesAndNorks Sat 24-Nov-12 08:21:20

Bunbaker, do you not think that sounds like a huge arts and crafts project?

forgetmenots Fri 23-Nov-12 22:38:10

Love it but would have pronunciation problems - worth considering if it would upset you

MadameJosephine Fri 23-Nov-12 22:20:08

Love it, beautiful name and,as others have already pointed out,a fabulous namesake.

AlwaysHoldingOnToStarbug Fri 23-Nov-12 22:03:43

Love it.

Bunbaker Fri 23-Nov-12 21:52:19

Emmaline
Emma, Emmaline
I'm gonna write your name high on that silver screen
Emmaline
Emma, Emmaline
I'm gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen

I love it.

I love it if it's pronounced as Emma-lynn (like Madeleine or Jacqueline). I don't like the Emma-lean or the Emma-line pronunciations. And I think whichever pronunciation you prefer, you would always end up correcting people.

But if I ever have another daughter, Emmeline will almost certainly be her middle name. Pronounced Emma-lynn. So there! smile

I don't like it. Which is a shame, because Pankhurst is a great role model.

LegArmpits Fri 23-Nov-12 20:01:50

I would say to rhyme with line.

vintageviolets Fri 23-Nov-12 15:46:41

Is it pronounced Emmy-lean?

FivesAndNorks Fri 23-Nov-12 15:46:23

Gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen

Just how much tinfoil will this giant star involve?

sparklechops Fri 23-Nov-12 15:45:23

Loved it, wanted it....DH vetoed it! Love the nickname Emme too.

Pankhurst. Fantastic. Love it.

ConfusedandBemused Fri 23-Nov-12 12:04:17

Nice but could be misheard as Emily, probably looks better written down than how it sounds iykwim

sparkle12mar08 Fri 23-Nov-12 12:00:50

It's perfectly decent, doesn't make me think wtf? and has a fab nn. But you and your daughter will spend your lives saying "No, Emmeline, not Emily"...

LegArmpits Fri 23-Nov-12 11:50:04

Love love love it. DS would've been it had he been a girl. There's a Ben Folds Five song called it too.

Beautiful

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Fri 23-Nov-12 11:37:36

I absolutely love it!

Cute and yet dignified
