Gender: F Meaning of Amelina: "work" Origin of Amelina: Old German form of Emmeline and Amelia

Now that the range of names including the modern Emmeline and Amelia -- relatives of each other, but of neither Emily nor Emma -- have become so fashionable, the original root name Amelina is due up for reconsideration as well. A lovely, delicate choice, its main disadvantage is that it sounds like a modern elaboration rather than the original name. And perhaps that it will be so often misspelled and mistaken for other forms of itself. But it is a lovely name with deep roots.
