What do you think of it?

Boring and over used in a Jane Austen sort of way. Is this the best name u can think of for your individual child?

I like it

I love Emma. Its classic and the Emma I know is very successful and well liked.

I'm a huge fan of what I think of as 'graceful names' and Emma is in that bracket.

Love it

Do you think it's a bit boring, old fashioned, dull? Or totally the opposite? Or just nice, not one or the other?

I really like it - I think it's lovely and surprisingly underused, at least where I am.

It isnt exciting or exotic, it's not unique or original, but it's a lovely, sound, traditional name. I would have called my second daughter Emma if she hadn't turned out to be a boy!

If you like how it sounds then go for it. I think it's a lovely, classic name. For some people classic means old fashioned and boring. For me it means that their name will just be their name rather than their USP...

Love it. Why try to be "original" (weird/pretentious) for the sake of it ?

There is a good reason why names are popular, because they are lovely names smile

Beautiful name grin!!!

I think it's a very pretty name. smile

SouthBySouthWest Fri 05-Jul-13 21:47:29

Happens to be to be my name. Hated it when young. Love it now. Classic smile

Lovely name. why didn't my parents call me Emma

Queazy Fri 05-Jul-13 21:52:40

It's a beautiful name - it's classic and so I honestly don't think it matters if lots of others use it.

Boring but classic

superdupermama Fri 05-Jul-13 22:12:34

Ok, see your points. How would you rate it against Elizabeth?

Kaekae Fri 05-Jul-13 22:12:48

It is ok, a bit boring. It is my middle name, prefer it over my first name.

NowPlayingZone Fri 05-Jul-13 22:14:05

Way nicer than Elizabeth, now that is dull.

SizzleSazz Fri 05-Jul-13 22:14:12

I too think it is lovely and under used. Only one in DC's school

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 05-Jul-13 22:14:36

Emma is a nice classic name but I prefer Elizabeth lots of lovely nn possibilities can I suggest Besty? And is my dd middle name so obviously fabulous

Suzieismyname Fri 05-Jul-13 22:16:26

They are both beautiful classic names. Elizabeth has more potential for nicknames.

Lala241280 Fri 05-Jul-13 22:16:47

Emma is beautiful name , was alway going to call my daughter it even before I knew I was having a girl lol
