Voted for Amelie, though Emilia was a close second.
It's funny, really, my relationship with these two names. I love them both so much and, yet, if the spellings were changed, I'd hardly give them another thought.
Emilia, for instance, is beautiful to me, exotic, sophisticated, and demure. And you'd think those same feelings would carry over to her almost-identical sister, Amelia, but they don't. Amelia is a perfectly nice name, sure. It's pretty, simple, and warm, but it lacks the mysterious romanticism attached to Emilia. The same goes for Amelie. I love Amelie, but change the "a" to an "e" (Emelie) or the "e" to an "a" (Amalie/Amalia) and I merely "like" the moniker. Strange, isn't it?

Amélie if it's pronounced in French. If not, I prefer Amelia.Zelia/Elja • Nineteen • Name and history nerd from an early age • I have a blog.

Emilia! I adore Emilia. Amelie would be my second choice. Emmeline I also adore--and is actually the only similar name on my list--but I'm not sure if it's too different to count. I would love to meet an Emilia, an Emmeline, or an Amelie. My only problem with Amelie is that people rarely pronounce it the proper French way.Lise
