However, it is clearly suffering from the plethora of similar names that are flowing around right now (Emelie, Emilia, Emily, Emilee, Amelie, Amelia) and has fallen more than 300 spots since 2013.

Lovely name, love this alternative spelling, and also the original, Emily

BjornandSage Says:


YES! Thank you. This is correct. My family is German, and Emilie is a family name. I am tired of Americans telling me the correct pronunciation is "Emily", and this is just a different spelling. Nope, my Oma pronounced her name "eh-MEE-lee-eh", and that is the way we will pronounce our daughter's name!

Isn't that how it is pronounced??

I don't like this. It makes me think that it's pronounced Emilia with out the a. Like EM-EEl-Ee

I absolutely love this spelling. Timeless, classic, creative and delicate. Emily sounds too common to me. I'm writing a novel and its protagonist is an Emilie.
