    I also say Em-mel-leen. As much as I hate changing up spellings, I think Emmelyn or Emmalyn is best for your pronunciation.

    I say Emma-line because of the shared ending with Caroline.
    Emmeline doesn't strike me as that french, so I apply the english pronunciation.

    Yeah. I hate to change original spellings, but I think Emmalyn sounds much better if you want the Emma-lyn pronunciation. By the way, I second the suggestion of Emma Lynn.

    My first instinct is Emma-LINE, because I know two girls with that name spelled that way, and that's how they pronounce it. If you want Emma-LYN, I suggest you spell it Emmalyn or Emmalynn.

    I pronounce it Emma-lyn. I think in order for it to have the -line sound it has to be spelled Emmeleine.
