She's 2 months and an Emmeline, but gets Emmie and Emmy and I want to know which way is best to spell it!

Wolfiefan Fri 22-Sep-17 14:37:56

Surely when you write it you write her full name?

BlueMuffins Fri 22-Sep-17 14:39:36

hmm I'm talking about things like Facebook, etc. does it even matter!?

I just want to know which way you'd spell it hmm

Reasonable question OP, I'd say Emmy. Gorgeous name.

The thing is Emme (in my head) seems like it would be said as 1 syllable, like Elle. Which is a bit silly as she's Emmeline.

I'd say Emmie

I prefer Emmie, but don't know why! Just the way it looks I think. Emmy looks like the award to me!

So this is for when you are referring to your dd in writing by her diminutive yes? I think it's entirely up to you smile For me looking at Emmeline I think Emmie feels more natural because there is an 'i' and an 'e' in the name and no 'y'. It's a pretty marginal preference though and I'm sure everyone else will just use whatever form you choose.

I'd spell it Emi or Emmi I think!

DD's friend is Emelia known as Emi. She writes Emi in cards etc., and her mum always writes Emi too. Not sure why writing a nn down is an odd concept!

I have a Thomas. I can assure you I've written Tom many more times than the full Thomas over the years (he's 16 now).

I like Emmie personally for the same reason as someone else said about there being an i and an e in Emmeline but not a y. I prefer the two ms as well because again Emmeline has two ms.

Emmy reads best to me....

Emma reads as very American in its spelling (but no idea why?!?), so I guess your location might explain this one....

Emmeline is a lovely name btw grin

I have an Emilia and she's Emmy for short.

I just like Emmy more than Emmie. That's the extent of my reasoning. I really didn't like Emi/Emmi.
