Emily is my favourate girls name, although my niece is named Emma.

Gemima is cool too!

Emma is a really cute name, although I like Emily better, as well.

Emma and Irene - in Italian they sound differently - were the names I had chosen for my baby-girls to come. Never arrived: I have two sons, two enthusiastic footballers! Anyhow, I prefer Emma to Emily.
Have a nice Sunday!

Catherine, Alexandra, Melanie and Elizabeth are my favorite girl names. I am unfortunately stuck for life with the plain, oft used as a middle name "Lynn" So any other girl name would be an improvement too !

Lynn said...

Except for names like Hester, Hagatha or Hermione !

I used to think Emma was an (not to offend anyone) an "old lady' name. Well most people I had me w/the name were over 70... It has grown on me along w/ Lily. Try having a plain name like Jane... no really I am Jane. If it want for Jane Austen, I would really dislike my 1 syllable name. I also love how Jane Austen has several characters named "Jane." Including the elegant Jane Fairfax.
