Emmeline or Beatrice?
Really like both names and just can't decide between the two. I have slight concerns about Emmeline being continually misheard as Emily and also that it there are some variations in its pronunciation, but not sure these issues are big enough to put me off the name.
Your thoughts gratefully received! Thank you grin!

My sister is an Emeline and has never been called Emily. Just doesn't happen - quite a different sound. Very nice name!

Squidwoman, does she pronounce it with a "leen" ending or "line" (as in straight line) ending? The latter is obviously quite distinct from Emily!
