Emmeline: How do YOU pronounce??
I love this name as a possibility for a baby girl but am concerned that no one will know exactly how to pronounce it - after all, I am not sure, myself! Do you guys pronounce it: Emme-LEEN, Emme-LYNN, or Emme-LINE ??
My first instinct when reading it in a book recently was Emme-LEEN, but I did later run into someone with the name who was Emme-LINE and had one of those Why-didn't-I-think-of-that moments.
Would love any input, thanks!

I say it like Emma + line (like, a straight line between two points)
pet peeves: nicknames as given names; unconventional spellings; masculine names on girls
not-so-guilty pleasures: five-syllable girls' names; virtue and nature names; over-the-top antique names for boys
(if i repeat name suggestions in a thread, it's because i like them! no apologies here for repeats of great names! )
IF YOU LOVE IT, USE IT!
