Alicia? Wdyt?

We've been through all the girls names in the world and still can't decide:)

Now I am considering Alicia as the first name. Actually thinking between ALICIA and EMMA. 

What do you think is better ?!

Both are nice,  I know an Alicia and she hates that she has to spell and pronounce it.  Emma is a classic,  easy to spell and pronounce

I like Alicia with the A-LEE-cee-ya pronunciation but have always really disliked the English default of Uh-LEASH-uh, which just sounds like lazy diction. It's a shame because on paper it looks beautiful.

As an Emily, I have long thought of Emma as the insipid, boring version of my name, but it's a well-loved classic so I'm obviously not representative there. :-)

Probably of the names you've recently been tossing around, I would say Victoria is the most classic and elegant, least trendy.

Alicia is nice.  I like that it's recognizable but relatively uncommon especially now.  I also really like Elise.

Emma is more popular but easier to say and spell.

Alicia is less common, but harder to pronounce (as mentioned above).

Both are lovely, classic, feminine names that travel well.

Of the two, I prefer Emma, but only by a narrow margin.

Both are nice, Alicia is less common today. I don't think it is hard to pronounce at all.

My favorite of the ones you mentioned is still Angelina.
