    In a world of Emma's and Emily's...

    Do you think Emilia is boring? With most other Em- names being extemely popular and Amelia also finding herself in the limelight quite a bit, would Emilia just get lumped in to that same catagory? Also, what are your general thoughts on Emilia? Millie would probably be my preferred nickname for her. TIA

    I don't particularly like Emilia. It just seems a bit forced and too much like Emma and Emily. I do, however, adore Millie. You could always name her Millie.
    All the best,

    Personally, yes with all these popular Em- names, I find it boring. Other than that, my general opinion is that it's a fine name, but I vastly prefer Amelia. I pronounce them differently and I like the soft AH sound at the beginning of Amelia to the nasally EM at the beginning of Emilia.

    If you want to avoid the possibility of yet another Emmie, you could take an alternative route to Millie, like Camilla or Milena.

    Sadly yes, I do find it a bit boring, it's too much like all the other Em names out there.
