    Ophelia or Amelia?

    These are two of my absolute favourites. However - right now Amelia is #1 in the UK, by quite a massive margin. It would be my top name otherwise.
    I don't mind about Ophelia's ''tragic'' connotations for various reasons.

    Also thinking about Bedelia nn Billie but I'm not sold.
    collecting for future darlings...

    Wilfred Alec ○ Baez Hugh ○ Rufus Eoghan ○ Edgar Nicholas ○ Cas William ○ Amias Leander
    Emmett Virgil / Rosemary Oona
    Sibyl Georgia ''Billie'' ○ Clemency Eilidh Briar ○ Maude Evangeline ○ Estella Margaret ''Esa'' ○ Ishbel Twila

    ...much love and i are waiting for you!

    Both names are beautiful but I have to go with Ophelia. It's simply stunning!

    I love these threads simply because in the end you usually have made up your mind about which name you like better despite if it's the more popular choice or not. (In your head you usually defend your preferred choice when people chose the other).

    - Edmund Louis (lou-ee) - Henry - Arthur Felix - Hugo -
    Eleanor - Rose Lavinia Charlotte - Flora - Alice Cordelia Pearl
    GP: Auguste | Ophelia Sybil

    I prefer Amelia but I think I would also have a hard time choosing it if it were #1 in my country.

    Have you considered Dahlia?

    I adore Amelia but prefer Emilia. Have you considered Emilia? Pronounced just slightly different. Maybe it's not as popular. I would not let popularity force me to not use a name I loved most.

    I was also going to suggest Emilia -- this is a family name for me and I absolutely adore it -- much more so than Amelia. Popularity, shmopularity. Choose a name you love. Ophelia is also beautiful, as is Dahlia and Delia (I am so in love with this name, but I have a very close friend with it, so we couldn't use it unfortunately). My friend pronounces it DEE-lee-ya and it just sounds so beautiful and lyrical.
