Emilia Nickname

So my DH and I have officially decided on a name for DD: [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]!

I love this name because my husband is originally from Poland and this name is a pretty popular European name and that was important to him. I personally just think it is beautiful and feminine. We will pronounce it E-MEEL-YA.

My husband also loves the idea of having a formal name and then a nickname. I [name_u]LOVE[/name_u] the sound of [name_f]Emma[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] together. But [name_f]Emma[/name_f] is just SO popular. Beautiful name, but compared to [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] it’s so common I feel like we’d be ruining her unique first name. I thought about [name_f]Milly[/name_f], [name_f]Em[/name_f], or [name_f]Emmy[/name_f], but I think I keep going back to [name_f]Emma[/name_f] b/c of the way it sounds with [name_f]Kate[/name_f].

So what does every think? Nickname, no nickname? [name_f]Emma[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] or something else?

Ugh :confused: my goodness! naming can be stressful. Thanks for the suggestions :slight_smile:

I don’t like nicknames generally, but [name_f]Mimi[/name_f] would be cute from [name_f]Emilia[/name_f].

[name_f]Millie[/name_f] or [name_f]Millie[/name_f] K?

[name_f]Emma[/name_f] as a nickname for [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] would be confusing. [name_f]Emma[/name_f] isn’t really a nickname like [name_f]Emmy[/name_f] or [name_f]Millie[/name_f] are.

Her nickname might come more naturally once she’s here, but in the meantime, I like [name_f]Emmy[/name_f] and [name_f]Em[/name_f]. [name_f]Lia[/name_f] is another cute option.

[name_m]How[/name_m] about [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] nn [name_f]Mila[/name_f]? [name_f]Mila[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] sounds nice, and I think [name_f]Mila[/name_f] is a [sur?]name in Poland.

[name_f]Emma[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] is adorable! i love [name_f]Emilia[/name_f], and my favorite nn is [name_f]Millie[/name_f], but I also like [name_f]Em[/name_f]/[name_f]Emi[/name_f], [name_f]Emma[/name_f], [name_f]Mila[/name_f], [name_f]Lia[/name_f]/[name_f]Mia[/name_f], [name_f]Ela[/name_f], etc.

[name_f]Emma[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] is so, so sweet! But I like [name_f]Emi[/name_f]/[name_f]Emmi[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] just as much, and it’s a bit less popular. Gorgeous name, by the way. Congrats! :slight_smile:

I love [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] nn [name_f]Mila[/name_f]. [name_f]Mia[/name_f] is cute too.

I have a friend whose name is [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] and everybody calls her [name_f]Mia[/name_f]. Or [name_f]Mila[/name_f] is super cute too.

I know a girl name [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] nn [name_f]Mia[/name_f].

I think you’ve picked a sweet choice! [name_f]Emma[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f] is beautiful. I also love the nn [name_f]Emme[/name_f] or [name_f]Emi[/name_f]. Congratulations!!

I love [name_f]Mimi[/name_f] or [name_f]Millie[/name_f] for a nickname for [name_f]Emilia[/name_f]! I’m a big fan of [name_f]Emma[/name_f], but I honestly think it doesn’t quite fit as a nickname for [name_f]Emilia[/name_f].

I vote no nickname

[name_f]Mia[/name_f] ???

Congratulations! I really love [name_f]Emilia[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]!

I do think because [name_f]Emma[/name_f] is so popular and a stand alone name on its own, that it could be confusing and people would think her name is just [name_f]Emma[/name_f].

[name_f]Mia[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Mila[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Emmy[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
[name_f]Lia[/name_f] [name_f]Kate[/name_f]
