Hydra Says:


Right.Different countries have different phonology,and therefore they typically spell names to fit with this.It's not as if everything else needs to fit American standards,anyway.

E2MA01 Says:


Exactly. It's not always about choosing a spelling that most American people are comfortable with. This spelling is used all around the world. Yes, there are also different pronunciations, and in the US many people might even pronounce it as as "ee-ma", but either way it is not taking away from "Emma." It's simply different.

I like this too as a nickname for a Elisabeth Marian, should we have a daughter, and I'm so hoping we are having a girl! Ema or Emi both are great nickname options to combine both the first and middle name.

Well, actually it is. As long as Ema stays in the US (I'm assuming CupcakeGirl13 is American) then it's a great twist on the name. If and when Ema visits Slovenia, The Czech Republic, Portugal, Brazil, etc. then she will be the only American who spells her name like that. I think it's a great idea.

Hydra Says:


Well, Ema is not kri8tif. It's just the way Spanish, Slovene, Czech, Portuguese, etc. spell it. You are totally right when you say everyone has opinions, but it's not good to just assume a name is spelled incorrectly because you aren't accustomed to a different spelling.

CupcakeGirl13 Says:


Ok, this just looks incomplete. It doesn't matter how popular the name is. I would much rather name my daughter the oh so popular Emma than try to be unique in a weird way with Ema. And this is all in my opinion. So if you like it thats totally fine. Because everyones got opinions.
