Amelia.

Alright, so…

[name_f]Amelia[/name_f]

I know it is a fairly generic name, but I would love to hear people’s opinions and reflections on it. [name_f]Do[/name_f] you like it? If you like it, would you use it yourself? Why or why not?

I would also like suggestions of middle names. My style is generally classic and even somewhat grandmotherly, but I am starting to feel more and more inclined to branch out of that, so any suggestions-- even, or perhaps especially, your wild ones-- are welcome. I’ve thought about [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f], [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Esther[/name_f], [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_m]Dawson[/name_m], [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Cecily[/name_f], and [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_u]Ruby[/name_u], but the only one I love of those is [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f].

Another first name I quite like is [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]-- which of [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] and [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] do you prefer?

Thank you!

[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] is okay. I’ve just met so many that it’s lost a lot of its spark for me, sorry.
That said however, it is very classic, very strong and not one you’d really regret. Plus, it has a lot of fun and beautiful nicknames :slight_smile:

[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] is a nice combo! Feels very vintage and balanced.

Of the two names, I like [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] best. [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Amelie[/name_f] could be a sweet combo

I think [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] is lovely! That said, I prefer [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]. To me it sounds stronger and spunkier and a little bit less expected. [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] works but I prefer [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f] or another single syllable middle name.

I could never get past thinking “mealy” when I hear [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]. I can see why other people like it though. Of the three Amelias I have known, only one went by her full name (the others were [name_f]Amy[/name_f] and [name_f]Molly[/name_f]). I love [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]! I agree with the pp that [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] works, but a monosyllabic middle lets it really shine. [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Jane[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Mae[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Maeve[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Anne[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_u]Wynne[/name_u], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Blythe[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Faye[/name_f], [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Faith[/name_f]…

I am behind [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] all the way. I watch too many old movies so the story of [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Earhart[/name_f] trumps all including popularity. Same with Mme. [name_f]Marie[/name_f] Curie.
If you love [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] - for me it’s a lovely name.
PP’s [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Harriet[/name_f] would be my choice and I am not using it because it did not pass the agreement test.:frowning:

[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Lark[/name_f] is really darling! Thanks for the suggestion! And [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Clarice[/name_f] has an adorable grandma-charm to it. I also really like [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Caroline[/name_f], [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_u]Beau[/name_u], and [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Violet[/name_f].

I met my first [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] in college and I thought it was such a beautiful name. It felt so classic, elegant, spunky, and at the time, uncommon. I know it’s more common now but I feel like too many name forums and too much nameberry could let us think this name is generic and I think that’s a false perception of how the people around you would encounter and think about your [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]'s name.

I think [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] is a beautiful name. I want to like [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] more than I do–I love it in theory but I still hear e-[name_f]LIZA[/name_f], think [name_f]Liza[/name_f] Minelli, and just can’t actually love it.

Second on the “mealy” front. I’ve never personally seen the appeal of the name. I’m in the minority though! I prefer [name_f]Eliza[/name_f].

[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] is a fine name, but it just doesn’t have a wow factor to me. I have known a handful, and I think it feels rather common to me.
[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] feels spunky and exciting.

I love love love [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]! Although my taste may (/probably will) change in the next 5-10 years before I actually have kids I would definitely consider using [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] :). Her middle name would most likely (if my husband agrees ;)) be a family middle [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] Pieternella.
I hands down prefer it over [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]. I’m not really fussed on the name as it just sounds rather harsh imo. Although popularity isn’t a major turnoff for me - I know 4 [name_f]Eliza[/name_f]’s (between the ages of 2 and 30s) and 3 [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]’s (one is 7 and the other is 4).
[name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Hazel[/name_f] is gorgeous! What about…

I used to think it was quite cute but in the past few years it’s really boomed, and I find that I’m no longer a fan. I love [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] though! As someone else suggested, I love [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Amelie[/name_f]

[name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f] is beautiful! Thanks for the suggestions. :slight_smile:

Ps I like the idea of [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_u]Grey[/name_u] I know it might be more popular but still strong & lovely. [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] is one of my favorite names!

Oh, I love so many of these <3 I am particularly drawn to Amelia Rosalind, I love the sweet, buttoned-up feel. Thank you!

I love [name_f]Amelia[/name_f]/[name_f]Emilia[/name_f], but wouldn’t use, ONLY because they are so similar to my name. I think [name_f]Amelia[/name_f] [name_f]Rosalind[/name_f] is both playful and sophisticated! I also like the suggestion of [name_f]Eliza[/name_f] [name_f]Pearl[/name_f].
