    Emmeline- opinions and how do you PRN?

    I hate to say it... but I am in love with this name right now. Not sure if it's "THE ONE" seeing as how I also am in love with Fiona and Phoebe and Daphne (all to different extents). But Emmeline has a very sweet, southern vibe to it. I feel it complements my DD name Annabel nicely and I love the nn Emmy.

    So what are your thoughts on Emmeline?

    How do you say it? I am hoping for EMMA-LINE and not one of the other variation I have heard (LEEN or LYN). Would this bother you, to correct probably 25-50% of people?

    I pronounce it emma-line. I think that's the prettiest one. Also, I like the Emmaline spelling better.

    I prounounce it Emma-LINE as well. I think, spelled Emmaline, it would be more frequently pronounced by others this way.

    With Emmeline (which is actually the spelling I prefer, personally), I think others would be more likely to pronounce it with the -LEEN and -LYN endings.

    Either spelling, it's gorgeous and I love it - especially with Annabel!

    One of my all time favorite names (although I slightly prefer the Emmaline spelling as well, and the Emma-line pronounciation). I think it goes perfectly with Annabel.

    Emmeline is such a lovely name, and it would go perfectly with Annabel! I once read that emma-LEEN was the appropriate pronunciation, but every time I see it I only think emma-LINE, which is how I pronounce it. I'm from the southern US, so I'm sure that informs my pronunciation of the name. : )
