I know an Emmeline, known by all as Emme (pronounced Emmy).

Lovely name imo, although I would worry about its increasing popularity.

I love it - beautiful and classy and very sweet shortened to Emmy

Is it too similar to Emily though? (good friend has an Emily, although don't leave near her)

EffiePerine Tue 29-Jul-08 22:15:41

I think of this

You can't have it, because I have already staked a claim on that one!

It is lovely, I have liked it for a couple of years but have noticed it appears to be making a comeback in The Times birth register, so could have potential to turn "rancid" in a few years. wink

My LO (11 weeks) is called Emmy! It is such a sweet name (but I am biased)! We've had a few people think it's Emily but on the whole they get it first off.

This is in our top five names for DD2 smile.

*need to know if it is too similar to Emily though!?*

Elkat Tue 29-Jul-08 22:30:34

Love it. Not too similiar to Emily.

artichokes Tue 29-Jul-08 22:33:08

Too similar for what?
Yes it sounds similar, esp if shortened to Emmy, but it is different.
What worries you about the similarity?

pgwithnumber3 Tue 29-Jul-08 22:35:53

Don't want her to think I have copied her!

artichokes Tue 29-Jul-08 22:37:49

If you had a Caitlyn and your friend then had a Catherine how would you feel?

beanybean Tue 29-Jul-08 22:39:22

No it's a totally different name to Emily!

floaty Tue 29-Jul-08 22:39:25

My ds2 has an Emmeline in his class,shortened to Emmy ,I think its lovely

NorthernLurker Tue 29-Jul-08 22:42:59

I like that too. It's a name you can be anything with. You'll have to give her a good briefing on the suffragettes though - she may spend a bit of time saying -'yes - as in Pankhurst'

pgwithnumber3 Tue 29-Jul-08 22:50:54

Artichokes, I wouldn't be bothered, it is a different name!

Suppose that answers my question then!

bluenosesaint Tue 29-Jul-08 22:54:19

First thought it Pankhurst as soon as i read the name, but hey, there are worse people to share a name with smile
