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.
I like the A because Amelia Pond from Doctor Who (who goes by Amy)
@Afishwish Congrats!!! Yaaaay!
Yay, Minnow McMinnowface! Congrats
Well this name game is done. I’ll tell rooster we have a winner.
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.
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.
But what conclusion did you come to?!
Yay @Afishwish congrats!!!!
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.
Yay! My vote!
It's a lovely name and I would consider it if we decided to go for #2.
