Comments and insights on the name Emilee: | Edit

I love the spelling twist that completely updates the name.

I disagree - I don't think it updates it, I think it dumbs the name down. "Emily" can seem like a grown-up's name; "Emilee" cannot.

Personal experiences with the name Emilee: | Edit

My name is Emilee and I think it's a wonderful name it's unique and everyone thinks it's cool that I spell it differently. :)
It sometimes gets annoying having to correct people all the time even family! But I love my name so it's worth it. I agree -NinjaKat952
