    I LOVE this name although do prefer it spelt Emmy. I think it is absolutely fine for a full name and if you are just going to call her Emmy then I wouldn't bother putting a longer name on the birth certificate.

    Thanks. I still need a middle name for Emme. Longer middles work best. :-)

    I think it is adorable!

    I have to admit though, that whenever parents have the choice, I think they should go with something more formal and use the nickname as a nickname. That is just my style, however, and I appreciate that many people just like the upbeat simplicity of an Annie (not formally an Anna) or a Harry (not formally a Harrison) -- so why not an Emme? Also, as far as the spelling goes, I like this one better than Emmy, although they are close in appeal.

    If it were me, I'd go with Emmeline Louisa or something. But as it is you -- go with Emme!

    As for middles -- hmm -- maybe you need to balance the nn as name with something more formal? Emme Victoria? Emme Florence? Emme Clementine? Emme Elise?

    I love Emme. I think it seems less nickname-y than with a y, prob because it reminds me of the name Elle. I do prefer it as a nickname for Emmeline, though.

    When I saw it, I assumed it was pronounced "Em". You may have to correct people about pronunciation or spelling from time to time, but that shouldn't be too big of a deal.

    Some middle names you might consider: Charlotte, Katherine/Catherine, Delilah, Guinevere, Aurora, Evangeline, Florence, Matilda. Shorter middles that might work are Kate, Grace, Frances, Faith, Jane.
