I also love and cherish this name. I choose this name for one of my twin girls. Sadly, my little Emeline died when she was born :'(.
She will always be in my heart. Her sister, Rosalie, has the same looks as Emeline, so we will know how she would look at every age of Rosalie.

Just out of curiosity how do you pronounce you name?

I used to think it looks prettier than Emmeline, that the extra m looks unbalanced and redundant. Now i'm not so sure. Emmeline would be less likely to be misspelled, since it is famous in English history. I think Emelina is a very pretty alternative.

I love this name! It sounds so fresh, it always reminds me of a summer forest with sun filtering through the maple branches . . . It also reminds me of lemonade! Just some strange insight . . .
