I'll just get the question out of the way before I ramble a little bit.What do you think of the name Amelia?

My husband has really liked this name for several years now and I have felt cold/lukewarm towards it for the most part. It was the name we had picked out if my son had been a girl and I found myself thankful that he ended up a boy just because after he was born I stopped liking Amelia. What I dislike most is that I feel like I have just a slight difficulty saying Amelia with 4 syllables instead of uh-meal-yuh.

For some reason,though, today I like it much more, maybe because I came up with a satisfying middle name to go with it leading me to imagine Amelia on an actual child and thinking about nicknames and such.I like Amy and Milly a lot, also Mimi and Minnie but only as cutesy baby nicknames.

I looked up a the history and popularity of Amelia and I was surprised to see that it is currently the most popular it has ever been since name popularity has been recorded in the US. I always though it was a bit more of an old fashioned name. The popularity doesn't really bother me, I was just surprised. Come to think of it though, it is similar to Emma, Emily, Mia, and other popular girls' names. I wonder if it would feel very boring/annoying to an Amelia to be in a class with several girls with such similar names.
