Asking for a family member smile Which of these names do you like the most? We were set on Elise but recently Emilia has grown on us because it's such a pretty name. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Elise. Emilia will constantly be confused with Amelia

Elise, very pretty and quite unusual.

I have an Elise smile We're always getting compliments on her name, and have only came across one other Elise in my life.

Both are lovely. I prefer Emilia but the name Amelia is so popular that the prettier Emilia will be assumed to be the same name. Elise has a pleasing sound to it.

Elise, the popularity of Amelia would veto the Emilia for me.

Elise for me too

Or Eloise if you want a slightly frillier version

Elise. Emilia is too similar to the extremely popular Amelia.

Elise, definitely.

Elise. It is DD1's middle name so I am a bit biased.

I love Emilia, but think that she well spend her life saying 'Emilia with an E'.

Not that keen on Elise as I know a horrible (adult) one. What about Eliza?

Elise. Are you French or…?

I think it also depends on your accent and where you live. Some accents and places butcher lovely names. My name was certainly abused in east London sad

Emilia though I'm very biased! wink

CrispyFern Sat 13-Dec-14 19:46:58

Elise, just because I know two Emilias and three Amelias!

Elise. Very pretty!
