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!
