    As are we! We've had the list for a while but J insists on spelling the first option with an A whereas I prefer an E.

    I like the “E” because it sounds the same in English and Spanish.

    E is obviously the superior way.

    Hmmm, does the potential nickname of A vs E change anything for you? I could see Emme vs Amie, or Mia for either.

    One of the loveliest and most talented people I know is with an E so I like E best.

    I prefer E, only cause the A version always makes me think of a bumbling housekeeper children's book character.

    Aw but Amelia Bedelia who takes everything literally is the best! Now there’s a picture book series too where she’s a kid.

    @calicat I love it with an A but think both are beautiful and go excellent with your last name.

    @Afishwish OMJG a little girl Minnow!!! So wonderful.

    I like the character, but as someone who grew up with the same name as a popular kids cartoon character, the association isn't fun.
     
  15. moose

    moose RINGWORM GIRL :(

    now I’m sitting here trying to figure out which one. I have a theory but not 100%.

    I love it with an E. My fave OB nurses name, lol. But also D kept saying he loved her name.

    @hellohelloagain I get that. I think a lot depends on the specific character & kid, and whether the kids around them happen to make it a Thing or not.

    Yay baby girls!!

    I’m bias with the name poll because if we do have kids I want to name a girl M.

    Legitimately one of the reasons I gave. He is as stubborn as a mule about this.

    Amelia Bedelia is the book I was reading when I first realized I could read, I have such a soft spot for it. Apparently it isn't popular here though!

    We decided to go with M because none of us would give on Amelia/Emilia.
