Hi, I really like the name Emily but am put off by how popular it is! Although I think it will go nice with my odd surname (Crumb).

Any other suggestions please? Struggling to find many girl names that I like!!

I've got an Emily. I chose it because I like it.

Why is it an issue if it's popular? I never get what people have against popular names.

It's a lovely name, popular for this reason.

Believeitornot Mon 11-Jan-16 20:48:07

Who cares if it is popular.

I don't. My dd is called Emily and I've not come across any others (she's 3)

It's a lovely name!

The name Emily is beautiful. As are Alice, Olivia, Isobel. Beautiful even though popular.

Really lovely name

Emily Crumb is a FANTASTIC name, she will sound like a detective in a novel! Absolutely love it. I think Emily is lovely (and spelled properly, hurray). Didn't think it was that popular actually - I know quite a few adult Emilys but no children. Go for it!

I have a cousin Emily. She gets Em for short. Lovely name, it's on my favourite girls names list smile

Very Vanilla

Not keen

I find it extremely boring.

ExitStageLeft Mon 11-Jan-16 20:55:38

Not my cup of tea at all. Sits with Sophie in my mind. Just boring and non interesting. Sorry.

LadyRivers1 Mon 11-Jan-16 20:55:39

That's my DD1s name, she's 9. To be fair I've not come across many Emily's her age but don't know how popular it is now!

What Exit said

I like Emily and Emma, but had two boys, and dh says that's enough, so neither for me!

Soooosie Mon 11-Jan-16 20:57:16

I only know one grown up Emily. Lovely name. Chic. I'd imagine an Emily to be a well behaved, warm child

magpie17 Mon 11-Jan-16 20:57:28

Emily Crumb is a tremendous name!

It's very popular but then a lot of very good names are popular, I wouldn't choose it for this reason myself but if you love it go for it.

poster FourForYouGlenCoco & magpie17 - Thanks glad you agree, I think there is something lovely yet cool about Emily Crumb! Reminds me of Emily Blunt who is awesome!

I get the mixed views on here, it's great to learn what people think. Open to other suggestions too! :-) xx

isntthatapippip Mon 11-Jan-16 21:24:10

It's lovely. It's popular because it's lovely.
I like Em and Millie for short too.

Iliveinalighthousewiththeghost Mon 11-Jan-16 21:29:21

Emily Crumb. Great name. It's like something out of a story book.

stopitcaroline Tue 12-Jan-16 07:46:28

I'm with the others: Emily Crumb is fantastic! It really does sound like some kind of really neat child character from a kid's book, maybe with some magical powers like Matilda Wormwood. Also, I just happen to love the name Emily. It's classic and pretty and soft.

Other names in the same vein as Emily: Anna, Grace, Isabel, Julia, Katherine, Clara.

ChessieFL Tue 12-Jan-16 07:49:39

I have an Emily so I love it! It's always on the top ten lists but I've only ever come across a couple of other child Emily's - think there's only 1 or 2 others in DDs school of 200 kids! And it does go brilliantly with your surname!

Bluesand1 Tue 12-Jan-16 08:41:17

Good solid name

mrsschu Tue 12-Jan-16 08:44:05

It's pleasant but dull. The popularity thing wouldn't bother me too much as it's a classic name. I can see why you would want something not too outlandish with your surname and the names sound fine together. It's just a bit, well, dull.

maybebabybee Tue 12-Jan-16 08:45:47

I think it's very dull but that's honestly a personal taste thing, it's a perfectly inoffensive name.
