Emeline/ Emmeline

I really like the name [name_f]Emeline[/name_f]! First of all, how do you prefer to spell it? Which spelling do you think is more popular?
[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f], or [name_f]Emeline[/name_f]?
Also, do you know anyone with this name, because I’ve never met anyone named [name_f]Emeline[/name_f]!

I’m also curious about the pronunciation. I pronounce it [name_f]Emma[/name_f]-leen. Which way do you pronounce it?
[name_f]Emma[/name_f]- leen
[name_f]Emma[/name_f]- lynn or
[name_f]Emma[/name_f] -line
Which do you like best? Also what part of [name_u]America[/name_u]/ the world are you from and does the pronunciation affect that do you think?

I prefer the [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] spelling and I do not know anyone with this name. I pronounce it em-uh-line. I’m from Australia, if that helps.

I don’t know anyone with the name [name_m]IRL[/name_m]. I like the spelling [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] (I’m warming up to [name_f]Emmaline[/name_f] too) and I pronounce it em-uh-leen. I’m from Australia too!

I like [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] best, although [name_f]Emmaline[/name_f] has been used in my family tree, I am Australian as well and pronounce it [name_f]Em[/name_f]-uh-line! :slight_smile:

[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f]. I pronounce [name_f]Em[/name_f]-uh-line. I live in the [name_m]Pacific[/name_m] NW part of the US. I don’t know any Emmelines but I know (2) [name_f]Emma[/name_f]'s, (1) [name_f]Emily[/name_f], (3) [name_f]Ella[/name_f]'s and (2) [name_f]Ellie[/name_f]'s. They all sound similar to me.

Double ‘m’ and -leen ending. :slight_smile: [name_f]Emeline[/name_f] looks incomplete to me.

I like [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] better than [name_f]Emeline[/name_f]. I would pronounce it [name_f]Emma[/name_f]-leen and I live in [name_f]Austria[/name_f]. I have never met anyone with that name. It’s not a pretty common name here but [name_f]Emily[/name_f]/[name_f]Emilie[/name_f] is really popular here.

I prefer [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] and pronounce it emma line. I do not know anyone with this name. I live in the Untied States and have lived in four states, VA, OH, FL, and WV. Beautiful name.

I’ve never met anyone with this name. I prefer the double m spelling and pronounce it [name_f]Emma[/name_f]-line

I became aware of this name years ago while reading about British suffragette [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] Pankhurst. She spelled her name with two m’s and pronounced it with the “leen” ending so those are my preferences as well. The name was first brought to [name_f]England[/name_f] by the Normans and since it’s an Old [name_m]French[/name_m] form of [name_f]Amelina[/name_f] this fact only reinforces the “leen” pronunciation in my view. The spelling [name_f]Emmaline[/name_f] is “line” for me.

I live in Northern [name_f]CA[/name_f]… Never heard of this name here, lots of [name_f]Emma[/name_f]'s, [name_f]Emily[/name_f]'s and [name_f]Ella[/name_f]'s. I like [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f].

I prefer [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] and I know a 2 yo named this, but they call her [name_f]Emmi[/name_f].

I like [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] (this spelling). It was on my own list :slight_smile: I don’t know anyone with the name, and I pronounce it em-uh-line

I like either spelling and prefer anything that isn’t a -line prn. [name_f]Emeline[/name_f] is the spelling on my list because it fits the length of the other names.

[name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] is my favorite spelling, but in the United States, [name_f]Emmaline[/name_f] is the most intuitive or frequently used spelling.

I prefer [name_f]Emma[/name_f]-leen and the spelling [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f]. I’m from the midwest, U.S. and don’t know anyone with this name, but I do love it. I think that spelling it [name_f]Emeline[/name_f] looks unfinished and misspelled.

Our daughter is called [name_f]Emeline[/name_f] - it does appear to be the correct spelling of the original Germanic name. [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] is the anglicized version.

Most people get the pronunciation right ([name_f]Emy[/name_f]-leen not [name_f]Emy[/name_f]-line) and the shortened version “[name_f]Emy[/name_f]” works really well.

I think this is such a beautiful name, both classic and modern at the same time.

I much prefer the [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] spelling. It gives it balance and completeness. [name_f]Emeline[/name_f] looks like it would be pronounced like Ee-muh-line.

I would pronounce it in this order: [name_f]Em[/name_f]-muh-line

I love the [name_f]Emeline[/name_f] (Émeline) spelling! It’s the [name_m]French[/name_m] spelling! I like [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f] too but not as much! I guess I’m the minority here! :slight_smile: I say the -line ending.

I’m English, and say [name_f]Em[/name_f] - uh - leen. I don’t know any [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f]'s (the spelling I prefer)
