Emilia vs. Amelie vs. Amelia

Help - can't decide between our shortlist of 3 names!

Thanks smile

Emilia reads like a try-hard version of Amelia to me.

I personally wouldn't use Amelie just because the film character grates on me.

I like Amelia smile

DD1's name is Emilia. She gets call Emmy for short, which I preferred to Millie (seems to be standard for many Amelias!)

Amelia is better. You can call her Mimi grin

Emilia is a beautiful name.
The smallest one I know actually has "Mimi" as her abbreviated NN...Emmy's very sweet, though, SuperBeagle.

Good associations, too: Emilia Fox, Emilia Clarke!

Emilia is much nicer. And not so overused.

Amelie will be always mistaken for Emily.
Emelia will always be misspelt as Amelia.

Much nicer than Amelia And Amelie

You can't go wrong with either though, assuming that their popularity doesn't bother you

They are all really really common names.

Amelia is the worst,every second baby around here is called Amelia and it just seems a bit uninspired.

Amelia. Emilia is like Amelia spelt wrong.

I prefer Emilia

Emilia, lovely name seldom heard for all the Amelia's. Amelie has different pronunciations I prefer Am eh Lee to Am ee Lee.
