    Emmeline

    I have loved this name since the early 80s from the film The Blue Lagoon. Also, the lady in the 1963 film It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, World was named Emmeline too. Anyway, I had a baby daughter in April, and we named her Katherine Noelle. I really loved Emmeline, but my sister has a daughter named Emily Rose. Therefore, I thought it was too close to her name. The only drawback with this name is that so many people mispronounce it as Emma-leen or Emma-lynn. The second syllable is a long I like in LINE. The French version would be Leen. Any opinions? Or would there really be no problem with this beautiful name.

    I love Emmeline but if I were in the same situation with a niece named Emily I'd have to let Emmeline go. :( I have a niece named Ava and I wont touch Avery, Eve, Eva or even Ada/Aida (which I love) because I think they are all to close to Ava.

    I'd say unless you see your niece fairly often, you will be seeing your daughter much more often and presumably it wouldn't be too hard to differentiate the names if you were calling out for your daughter while your niece was around. This reminds me of a few friends of mine - Stephanie and Jeffrey who were brother and sister but when they were called Steph and Jeff they were constantly confusing eachothers names for the others. So - I guess what I am getting to is that if you really love the name, you should go for it and I am sure each will have their own nn's that will be different enough to differentiate them.
