For me it's forever associated with Emlyn Hughes and dreary weekends with endless football on the telly.

KateBeckett Sat 05-Nov-16 15:16:02

I like it!

Hughs. From that 80s sports show - former Welsh rugby player (still Welsh, but former rugby player obvs).

Emmeline is a girls name grin

Thanks everyone... It's not looking good!

Love it.

It's lovely Welsh name

NuggetofPurestGreen Sat 05-Nov-16 15:22:01

I like it.

For a boy? Too similar to emmeline. For a girl? Why not emmeline?

SweetieePiee Sat 05-Nov-16 15:25:24

It's a boys name... So it's for a boy.

Also gremlin, sorry.

I looked at it and thought it was a nice girls name

gratefully Sat 05-Nov-16 15:42:14

Why would you call a girl Emlyn? Oh god that has really tickled me - a girl called Emlyn gringrin

I think it's a bit dated OP. The youngest one I know is 40s

ForeverEyesOfBlue Sat 05-Nov-16 15:44:01

I like it!

Akire Sat 05-Nov-16 15:51:26

OP are you living in Wales ? Makes huge difference since most people here never heard of it or confusing it with a total different girls name!!!

SweetieePiee Sat 05-Nov-16 15:53:08


We're Welsh, living in London smile

gratefully Sat 05-Nov-16 16:11:05

How can you have never heard of the name Emlyn?? It's really common!

Luciferbox Sat 05-Nov-16 16:12:24

It's a lovely name. I've only met one little Emlyn. Go for it

Akire Sat 05-Nov-16 16:19:38

You can get away with anything in London, half kids you met will have names you never heard of or no idea how to say. If you love it go for it!

I like Emlyn very much.

And it's a real name not like some of the stupid monikers people come up with nowadays

SugarNspiceNallThingsNice Sat 05-Nov-16 16:23:13

Makes me think of Newcastle Emlyn in Wales. But I quite like it for a boys name

I love it . One of my sons has a Welsh name too.
