DD1 due September. Already have 3 year old Henry.

I've always loved Emma. DH likes it also but thinks it is a bit bland. He really likes Bryony and Lana. I like them both also but really really love Emma. Is he right? Is it bland?

Thank you in advance smile

No! It's lovely.

I like it and much prefer it to Bryony or Lana. Classic name but not used much anymore unlike Emily.

Love the name - I have an Emma - classic, never dates and only one Emma in her year group of 360

I like Emma, always have, I also think Lana is nice.

I love it too.

No, it's lovely. Ds2 would have been an Emma if he had been a girl.

Emma is a beautiful and timeless name.

No it is beautiful, elegant, timeless take-you-anywhere kind of name.

Lana I like too with its seedy glam 40s filmstar overtones

Bryony is too try-hard and wafty for my taste. Although the only Bryony I ever knew was hard as nails.

I have an Emma too so I love it as well

MistressMerryWeather Tue 21-Jul-15 20:04:57

Emma is thee best name in the whole spanking world!

Meh indeed!

<sniffs indignantly>

Noooo it's not "meh" at all shock
It's classic and beautiful not that I'm at all biased

dontthinktwiceitsalright Tue 21-Jul-15 20:26:24

It's a nice name but I think Lana is nicer

ConcreteElephant Tue 21-Jul-15 20:36:25

It is not 'meh'! It is lovely.

I like it. It was on our list. (Along with Amy, Sarah, Katherine and at least one other I have now forgotten.)

GeraldineFangedVagine Tue 21-Jul-15 20:41:21

I am both elegant and timeless and not really called Geraldine FYI.

LondonRocks Tue 21-Jul-15 20:43:27

It's ok, but Lana is nicer.

Sophronia Tue 21-Jul-15 21:04:57

It's lovely and not so popular anymore. It goes very well with Henry, and is much better than Bryony or Lana.

Junosmum Tue 21-Jul-15 21:08:15

It was the most popular name in the US last year.

BeautifulBatman Tue 21-Jul-15 21:10:03

It's beautiful, timeless.

FennyBridges Tue 21-Jul-15 21:11:00

It's a lovely name :-)

FlysInDreams Tue 21-Jul-15 21:13:49

DTD1's name, so definitely NOT meh! grin

MamaMotherMummy Tue 21-Jul-15 21:17:39

Never met an Emma I've liked. Emmaline I really like though.

SueBigFatSue Tue 21-Jul-15 21:20:35

It's a classic. Not heard of any young Emma's recently so she shouldn't be one of 10 Emma's in a class grin
