Me too, didn’t even consider the Em-me-lie-na, went straight to Em-me-lee-na. I think Emmelina is super pretty, and I’m surprised that’s not already a name. It’s definitely more frilly, but not more frilly than [name_f]Isabelle[/name_f] to [name_f]Isabella[/name_f] or [name_f]Adeline[/name_f] to [name_f]Adelina[/name_f] or [name_f]Caroline[/name_f] to [name_f]Carolina[/name_f] (Adelina and [name_f]Carolina[/name_f] with the -lee-na pronunciations that Emmelina shares).
I wouldn’t blink twice on meeting an Emmelina, I would just think how pretty the name is and how unique.
But that’s not to say I don’t like [name_f]Emmeline[/name_f], and I’m not sure which I prefer right now.
