Emilia for me!

Zoe - lovely name, beautiful sound and meaning.

I quite like both and think Emilia Zoe sounds lovely as a first name and middle name. Sorry, that's probably not very helpful!

Love it. And Emilia will blend in with all the Amelias/ Evas

ZoyaTheDestroyer Wed 01-Jul-20 07:19:04


Emilia will get lost in the sea of Amelias.

Zoe by far. It’s fabulous.
Emilia blurs into every other frilly Amelia, Amelie, Emmeline, etc.

I love Zoe. Its easy to spell, everyone knows it but there's not many around.

Emilia has become dull from overuse.

Love both names so much!

Millions of Emilias, Ellie's, Evie's, Ava's, Millie's, Maya's, Eva's, Ella's.
So Zoe.

Emilia, but I'm biased as I have an Emilia Rose 🌹

Definitely Emilia smile

I love Emilia as a name, but it's true that those names are very common now, also they'll probably get a lot of people calling them Amelia.

Zoe is beautiful, and relatively unusual now! I'd go with that!

Zoe is a brilliant name, one of my faves.

Poppydaisys Wed 01-Jul-20 12:06:48

Zoë spelled like this.

Zoe looks like Joe or Toe smile

Thank you! It's seems Zoe is the forerunner. lots of Emilia and Millies about.

lovesunshine 'they'll probably get a lot of people calling them Amelia'.

I find this very confusing about the name Emilia. I want to say 'emmill-ee-yuh' but a lot of people seem to pronounce it identically to Amelia ('ameel-ee-yuh'). Even the actress Emilia Fox seems to use the same pronunciation as Amelia. And if the pronunciation is identical then I sort of think, what is the point of Emilia then? I like Emmeline more. How do people with an Emilia say it?

But overall I would definitely go for Zoe, less fussy and more unusual at the moment. It's gorgeous. (Yes I know it should have those accents, but I don't know how to produce them on my keyboard!)

Emilia is lovely, really pretty, but Zoe is a strong, fabulous name and there aren't many around at the moment.

I love both names! I like the ö for Zöe

I have an Emilia, I pronounce it Em-ee-Lee-yuh like (Em like Emma or Emily) which to me sounds very different to Amelia but I do find myself saying “Emilia with and E” because when you say it quickly people don’t realise the difference and Amelia is common. It can be annoying, I don’t regret it though as I still love the name.

I like the ö for Zöe

That’s not right. It would be Zoë. But I think it’s redundant these days. We don’t write Chloë either any more. Either way, lovely strong name.
