DH loves the name Emily. He wanted to name our daughter Emily, of course. I don't dislike the name at all, I just didn't think it was the right fit. Her name ultimately ended up being Amelia.



Someday when we TTC our third, I know he'll put Emily back on the table. Question: Do you think Amelia and Emily are too similar? And I'm not really one to change spellings, but I kinda like Emilie better than Emily.



I'm kinda annoyed with the "y" not being level with the rest the name like my other kids have... LOL.. I know, it's silly... Haha

My name is Emily and it's a great name. No one ever misspells or mispronounces it and you can make tons of nick names with it. I'm Emma, Emi, Em, Lily, Illy.

I think it sounds too alike. I would confuse the names.
Maybe Emma or Emmeline? Suggest those to him and see if he likes them at all?
Maybe he won't like the name anymore, anyways! I know that the names I like change constantly. We were going to name our last baby Eliza if he had been a girl, and I was dead-set on that name. Now we are going with Zoey for this baby. Lol.

See, I thought that, but was looking at behind the name and it considered Amelia an unrelated name to Emily.

Haha.. that's funny. My mom wanted me to name her Zoe SO bad when I was pregnant with her. She brought it up ALL the time.

I never even thought of the name. DH and I came across the name when reading through names on baby-name-sites and he said he really liked it... after saying it enough I decided that I kind of liked it, too. Now it's really grown on me. I really hope its a girl so I can use it!

Fair enough. People cant like every name.
