Makes me think of the song. "I'm gonna make you the biggest star the world has ever seen"
Get out the cardboard, scissors and the glitter glue smile

Does it matter?

The one at my children's nursery is pronounced emme-line

U.K. Pronounciation is Emma Lean (based on the a a Milne poem, Emmeline to rhyme with queen)

US pronounciation is Emma Line.

I think!!

Emma line

ABitAsleep Thu 03-Mar-16 16:04:35

Emm-eh-leen

OvO Thu 03-Mar-16 16:07:47

Emm e lean
Or maybe
Emmy lean

There's definitely an e sound when I say it rather than an a.

AuntieStella Thu 03-Mar-16 16:10:36

emm-uh-leen

(the 'uh' being schwa)

DontKillMyVibe Thu 03-Mar-16 21:10:52

Emma-line. The second syllable sounding the same as Caroline.

NadiaWadia Thu 03-Mar-16 21:49:20

Emma leen

Where does the 'a' come from that some of you are adding? To me it is
like it is written, Emm-e-leen!

Thurlow Fri 04-Mar-16 13:55:47

Emma-leen.

NadiaWadia Fri 04-Mar-16 19:38:57

Gummi The point is that the first part of the name is pronounced the same as 'Emma'. Plus 'leen'. I suppose strictly speaking it is not actually an 'a' sound, but more like 'Emm-uh'. But that's the same with every name ending in 'a', and everyone knows what is meant, I would have thought.
