    I pronounce it the French and British way ("leen"). I heard this name while researching the woman's movement. There was a British suffragette named Emmeline Pankhurst and this is the way she pronounced it. I would pronounce with the "line" ending if the spelling was changed to Emmaline. I don't think the "lyn" pronunciation is accurate but then people pronounce names the way they want to nowadays so you may hear it on your travels. It's a beautiful name.
    All the best,
