I have a 2 syllable surname. I don't know what I'm having yet but struggling with girls names!
Also considered: Amelie, Amelia, Mia
So that's my sort of taste
Any other suggestions also welcome!

Emilia Violet
Though I prefer Amelia Violet

Ivy or violet first

Emilia doesn't look right to me so Amelia Violet!

She will be forever correcting the spelling of her name if you call her Emilia - not Amelia (which I like more incidentally, should you care at all about my opinion lol). Amelia Violet is lovely.

Emilia Violet is lovely.

Emilia violet and I like Emilia much better than Amelia!

Amelie violet is utterly gorgeous smile

Emilia Ivy smile

But with the veto that DD is Emilia and has to stress the "E" and spelling it and our surname all the time is annoying and she is only 4!

But a friend with an Amelia has the same problem

Emilia with either is beautiful. I loved it and got overruled - hopefully next time! Good luck.

Emilia Ivy, although Emilia Violet is also very nice.

Sofiria Sat 06-Feb-16 21:16:14

Emilia Violet. Amelia Violet is also nice but I prefer Emilia.

Emilia Violet I prefer. Emilia is one of my favourite names. Go for it

Violet sounds better with Emilia than Ivy IMO. Although actually I prefer Violet to Emilia.
How about Emmeline Violet?

My name is Amelia and I've spent the last few years correcting the spelling from Emilia which people tend to default to now. Didn't happen when I was a kid (I'm 33).

Amelia is the Victorian spelling (though originally German depending on who you ask), Emilia being French/Spanish.

Emilia Violet. Emilia is nicer than Amelia

Emilia Violet is gorgeous
Dislike Ivy.

Emilia Ivy. I much prefer Emilia to Amelia. Amelie is also lovely but better with Violet as a middle name.

Dreamimgofmyholiday Mon 08-Feb-16 07:28:13

Emilia Violet so beautiful.

violet purely because of flower compared to Ivy which is generally known for its climbing leaf x

Emilia Ivy!

I don't like two vowels running into each other, so Violet. But Amelia, unless you want your daughter to spend her life saying her name is Emelia-beginning-with-an-E.

moreshitandnofuckingredemption Thu 11-Feb-16 23:01:33

Emilia is lovely
Middle name needs to start with a consonant IMO so Emilia Violet
