Comments and insights on the name Emelia: | Edit

My middle name is Emelia. I was going to be called Amelia but my Mum thought it would be unlucky so we changed the A to an E and there you go! I have never met another who is called Emelia and spelt the same way. Every time I write it in to word a red line comes under it which is annoying. But I love my name!

Personal experiences with the name Emelia: | Edit

While looking for a name for my second daughter, I came across the Name Emilia, which has an "i" after the "m". I liked it because it reminded me of the name Amelia, which I have always adored. Unfortunately, I couldn't name my second daughter Amelia because I named my first daughter Adahlia (another rare spelling)... But I was having an issue with the 'i" in Emilia, it wasn't spelled the way I wanted it to sound so I combined Emilia and Amelia and named my second daughter Emelia! I love the uniqueness and she hates it... however, while it's spelled different ways, it is a very popular name in other countries like Italy and Portugal (I've been told personally by people from those countries.)

I am called Emelia and I love it. its a very unique way of spelling a very common name (Amelia). However when I was younger I hated it mostly because I could never buy anything with my name on and countless of people thought I said my name was either Emma, Emily or some other variation and so many people spell it wrong. A lot of people ask how I got my name and the story is actually quite boring. my mum wanted a name beginning with E because my brother is called Eliot and she liked the name Amelia so just change the first letter to and E. she didn't know you could spelt with and I that's why I have 2 E's.
