Comments for the name Emeline

Comments for EMELINE:

Emeline comes from heim lind, which is a German phrase for "peaceful home." The name was brought to the attention of the English world through Normandy in the 11th century.

I always thought it was spelled "Emmeline", with two "m"! And as it is stated as a French name, the spelling should in fact be "Emmeline" regarding the pronunciation of the name. As far as I know, "Emeline" would look and sound very strange in French.
There's also an entry for the name "Emmeline" on this site, but the origin is stated as being different from this one's. I don't really get it.

I was searching an online late Tudor and early Stuart English marriage register recently and found Emeline several times. It's prettier than Emmeline imho.
