    Thoughts on Amelie?

    My mom and I were talking about Greece today, and she mentioned that her cousin, Angela, goes by Amelia (in Greek it is pronounce AH-me-leah) because in the church you have to go by your baptismal name, which has to be the name of a saint. I think that's what it is. So, I started thinking about Amelie, as it sounds like Ah-me-leah. What are your thoughts on Amelie? I'm a bit worried about pronunciation as I grew up with an unpronounceable name. Do you think the average person would be able to pronounce it right? Do you prefer Amelia, (normal pronunciation)?
    Thanks!

    My daughter is an Amelie and we pronounce it Ah-meh-lee, which is the only legit pn, as far a I'm away. I love her name and we have little/no pn issues. People have accidentally called her Amelia upon meeting her but when corrected we've rarely had a problem.

    I think Amelie is more stylish than Amelia and far less popular. I don't think people will have pronunciation troubles with it.

    Amelie is a gorgeous name and I don't think they will be many pronunciation problems.

    I really like the name Amelie, I don't think people would pronounce it wrong as there are popular names in the UK with the same ending such as Emily and people pronounce them fine.
