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.

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 . . .
