How do you pronounce this? Just like Amelia?

crashbangboom Sun 02-Feb-14 15:29:55

Yes. Some one I know has a dd called this.... Amelia

GirlsonFilm Sun 02-Feb-14 15:33:14

More emphasis on Emil, like Emil and the detectives, rather than Amelia.

As GirlsonFilm says, there is a slight difference in the sound - the "Em" to sound like the beginning of Emily. Both names do sound very similar though.

RugbyWidow7 Sun 02-Feb-14 16:14:54

Like Emily

Well although it's a tiny difference in pronunciation the difference in spelling means we aren't "copying" my cousins daughter who is Amelia. So Woop happy days our baby has a name!! And Emmy is a really cute nn smile

GirlsonFilm Sun 02-Feb-14 17:03:27

It's a lovely name not biased at all smile

Mrsindecision Sun 02-Feb-14 17:06:42

Yes, I prefer Emilia to Amelia! Well done on finding the "right" name. grin

Tea1Sugar Sun 02-Feb-14 17:09:11

Cannot describe how good it feels to have found The One!!

Especially now Peter Andre has called his daughter Amelia... grin

Emilia far nicer in my opinion. Lovely name.

HoratiaDrelincourt Mon 03-Feb-14 18:13:27

Yes, slightly different from Amelia. Very nice (I like Amelia too though).

MrsRV Tue 04-Feb-14 16:37:54

oh no piss off Peter Andre using Amelia. Emmy is too cute. better than Millie which was my thinking for Amelia. Now considering Amelie here. jealous OP that you've found the one....

Tea1Sugar Tue 04-Feb-14 16:41:31

MrsRV our tastes are identical... Go us :D
Next job for us is to decide between:
Emilia Charlotte
Emilia Rose
Emilia Jane
Emilia Kate
Emilia Claire

Mrsindecision Tue 04-Feb-14 17:39:59

Emilia Charlotte would be my pick.

MrsRV Wed 05-Feb-14 07:15:38

Emilia Rose gets my vote xx

Vajazzler Wed 05-Feb-14 07:30:33

A friend has a dd called Emilia. She pronounces it Emma-Leah

Tea1Sugar Wed 05-Feb-14 08:16:53

Vajazzler - interesting. All the pronunciations I've found on line have said em-ee-lia which is how we will pronounce it.

Vajazzler Fri 07-Feb-14 13:13:19

I know. I was a bit hmm at first but it really suits her

givemeaclue Fri 07-Feb-14 13:15:40

Peter Andre just called his dd Emilia.

Mrsindecision Fri 07-Feb-14 13:18:07

Peter Andre's daughter is actually called Amelia, not Emilia (very similar though!) smile

MrsRV Fri 07-Feb-14 19:53:57

Tea1Sugar Sat 08-Feb-14 10:36:41

Not yet. I want Kate, dp wants jane (plain!).
