Personal experiences with the name Emilia: | Edit

We named our second daughter (2012) Emilia and nicknamed her Emmie. I'm sure people originally think it's Amelia but when we say her nickname they usually figure it out. Her older sister is Elyssa (Ellie) so we spelled Emmie with the "ie" instead of just a "y" or just an "i". We get a lot of complements on her name and we even had a cousin that lives in Europe name her daughter Emilia.

My name is Emilia and i don't have any complaints about my name. It is not overused, and i only had another Emilia in my class on 7th grade. I really like it! My siblings are Clara, Spencer and Madeline.
