A fictional bearer of this name is Amelia Pond, which is the red-haired companion of the 11th Doctor in Doctor Who, who goes by the nickname Amy. Personally, I like Amelia, I by far prefer it to the more plain Amy. :)

We are from Belgium and named our daughter Amelia after Amelia Earhart, the first female to fly across the Atlantic. We were looking for a classy and elegant, timeless name yet not overly used, which can be pronounced in many languages and has a nice meaning and some nice role models. We only found out about the birth defect after we picked the name, I doubted a bit but hardly anyone knows it, so we were ok with that. The French variant Amélie is quite popular but Amelia is rather rare.
