Thank you everyone for all your help on my last thread.

We decided on Sebastian for a boy.

However if it’s a girl most votes were for Amelie or Emily.

My husband prefers Emily as it’s classic
I do like Emily but feel it’s dated? Amelie is more fresh.

What do you think? Please vote one!

Amelie is beautiful

I don't like Amelie - it became popular after the film.
Emily is a classic, so my vote is for Emily.

Emily is soooo boring

Go with Amelie

Agree with other poster Emily is so boring.
Amelie is beautiful.

Emily is timeless, where as Amelie feels more trendy/try hard to me (not in a good way). I don't think it sounds fresh to be honest. It's been popular for a few years.

I know some people prefer Emmeline to Emily? I still prefer Emily though. Or actually Emma is my favourite.

Amelie and Amelia are probably the most common names here where I live so on that basis, I’d go for Emily.

I prefer Emily, but your vagina = your choice!

Emily. It’s classic and Amelie will be dated in a few years.

Emily deffo gets my vote 😁 or perhaps shake it up... Emilie? Classic & Fresh 👌

YappityYapYap Sun 12-Jan-20 17:21:04

I vote Emily. I really like Sebastian for a boy, good choice!

YappityYapYap Sun 12-Jan-20 17:22:44

Oh I agree with Twiggy! Emily but spell it Emilie. That's really nice

Also Amelie is a bit trying to be french but not. Loads of amelias around, it's boring.

Amelie. Sounds completely different to Amelia so don’t know why people need to point out Amelia is popular

Emily, amelie is very overused in my area

user1493494961 Sun 12-Jan-20 19:02:54

Amelie is a very pretty name, I don't think it will date. I know an Emilie.

bridgetreilly Sun 12-Jan-20 19:20:46

Amelie sounds pretentious unless you are French. I would pick Emily or Emilia.
