I absolutely love it!

Cute and yet dignified

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

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"...

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

Pankhurst. Fantastic. Love it.

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

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

Gonna make you the biggest star this world has ever seen

Just how much tinfoil will this giant star involve?

Is it pronounced Emmy-lean?

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

I would say to rhyme with line.

Rhubarbgarden Fri 23-Nov-12 21:00:49

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

Anonymumous Fri 23-Nov-12 21:49:47

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

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

I love it.

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

Love it.

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

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

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

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

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

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

HavingALittleFaithBaby Sat 24-Nov-12 09:35:11

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

HaggisMcNeeps Sat 24-Nov-12 11:24:39

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

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


FivesAndNorks Sat 24-Nov-12 15:33:19

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

FivesAndNorks Sat 24-Nov-12 15:33:57

lots of pritt stick involved too

ShowMeTheCoffee Sat 24-Nov-12 17:21:37

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.

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

Oh right grin

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