Origin:Feminine variation of Emil, Latin
Description:Emilia is the feminine form of the Roman clan name Aemilius, which derived from the Latin aemulus, meaning "rival." In Shakespeare’s Othello, Emilia is the wife of Iago and confidante of Desdemona. Amelia, although homonymous, has a different root and meaning.
Origin:Italian, Polish, Czech, feminine variation of Daniel
Description:Daniella, Daniela, and Danielle were among the hottest names for twenty years, but now, though still popular, they can no longer be considered stylish options, lagging behind the newer Ella, Stella, Bella, Gabriella, and Isabella.
Origin:Italian, Polish, Russian diminutive of Angela
Meaning:"angel or angelic"
Description:Angelica is by far the choicest form of the angelic names -- more delicate than Angelina, more feminine than Angel, more modern than Angela. But though Angelica is so lacy and poetic, it lags behind the bolder Angelina (probably for obvious reasons).
Origin:Scottish diminutive, also Hindu equivalent of Pisces
Description:Most famous as a Dracula victim (where Mina is short for Wilhelmina), Mina is an all-purpose name.
