    Emeline spelling and pronounciation

    I love the name Emeline, but I am not quite sure how others pronounce it & how the pronunciation varies.
    Do you pronounce it:
    emma- leen
    emma- lynn
    emma-line
    I have always pronounced it "emma- leen" but I was just wondering how others say it!
    and which spelling do you prefer? Emmeline or Emeline? I think I like Emeline better. Also in your opinion which is more popular?

    Emmeline is my preferred spelling with the "leen" pronunciation (it's French) . Emeline looks incomplete to me.
    All the best,

    I pronounce it with the -leen ending. I prefer the Emmeline spelling because it looks more complete than Emeline.
