I love this spelling, but Emily isn't bad either.

I love it, but that's probably because it's my name. I think it is a good alternative to Emily because it is an original spelling, but it still has a real meaning.

This is such a pretty name. Generally, I wouldn't like the name Emily but this is such a nice, delicate spelling that I have changed my mind about the name. I would only use this spelling though.

I love the spelling of Emily. I am tired of Y endings.

Imli (also spelled imlee) means "tamarind" in Hindi. When I was traveling in India, I would say, "Hello, my name is Emilie" and the reply was invariably, "Imlee? Like the fruit?"

I personally much prefer this spelling to Emily - possibly because of my love for the aforementioned musician Emilie Autumn (Emilie Autumn are her actual first and middle name), but also because I find it classy, intriguing, pretty and that little bit more unique than Emily.

Pronounced E-mee-lee in German. [noted -ed]

This is my best friends name and most people when first read it think it says Emile or pronounce it like Emil. I prefer the name Emilia, or Amelia more because it looks more feminine.

Very pretty spelling.

I like this spelling. It's not "kre8tiv", and the name looks well balanced.

The correct German pronunciation is eh-MEE-lee-eh, not like Emily. [noted -ed]

Nice break from all the Emily's you see everywhere. I think this spelling is prettier, honestly.

I think this spelling is so refreshing and sweet. Definitely one of my favorites!

Nice to use in English, as an alternative to the more common Emily.

I named my daughter Emilie after the European spelling (the original) and my great grandmother from Finland, Emilia. I love the name. She is 14 now and she fits it perfectly. It's a beautiful name.

I love the spelling of this name. So much prettier than plain old Emily. If my name wasn't Emma, I would call my daughter this, but it is and I don't like it when people call their child a name similar to their name.

I never cared for the name/spelling of Emily. Two weeks before my daughter was born (June 2006 & I didn't know I was having a girl) I thought it would be nice to name a little girl Emilie.
1) My Mom wanted to name me Emily, but Dad didn't care for it.
2) My grandmother, born in 1895, name was Minna Emilie.
Without saying anything to my husband, a week before her birth he suggested the name. I said only if we could spell it like my grandmother's middle name. So she was born and named Emilie Jacqueline after my grandmother and Jacqueline for my husband's Aunt. We didn't tell anyone until she was born what name we picked. My Mom cried saying she finally got her Emilie! Also without realizing it, the pattern in which my daughters name is spelled is similar to my given name. She is Emilie and I am Tricia. Each six letters with the letter "I" in the 3rd and 5th place within the names.

Emilie is also used in Norway. It's spelled e-MEE-lye there, (I guess), although I also know a Norwegian with this name pronouncing it E-mee-lee.

Emilie Adams and Emilie Nicolas are both Norwegian singers, though the latter is slightly more famous.

I love this name, I think because my name is Emilia and I like it as well. I like most (if not all) of the spellings and variants of this name, well, maybe besides those like Emmilee, Emilee, Emmily, Emileigh, Emaleigh or Emiley or anything like that. I don't have anything against the traditional Emily, it is a little bit boring, you see it everywhere even if you don't live in an English-speaking country, but it's still a pretty, classic little name in my opinion. But Emilie has all that, what Emily has, plus all that lacks Emily. It's classy, gentle, feminine, sweet, easy to pronounce everywhere I guess, classic, fitting a woman any age, flexible when it comes to nicknames and so on, but also is pretty unique in its spelling, but not in this over creative way which I hate, it may appeal to people with more modern taste, as well as to those who prefer more classic names, it's also more elegant than Emily, maybe because it's longer (?) and it's not so popular, 'cause even though I like Emily I think it's overwhelmingly popular. I think Emilie is a fresh alternative to the dozens of parents across the world who have a "crush" on Em- names at the moment. When I think about this name I see a woman pretty similar to Emily Of New Moon haha. Black-haired, pale, grey-eyed, tall and slim, very dreamy, bright, creative and a little withdrawn. My associations with Emilie are Emilie Autumn and Emilie Nicolas (Norwegian electronica singer), but also, like I said Emily Of New Moon, because any name related to Emily reminds me of her, probably because I - being an Emilia - feel so close and similar to her. One thing I don't like about Emilie is its French pronunciation e-mee-LEE, I prefer it with the accent on the first syllable as in English and that's the way I pronounce it, I also like the Norwegian pronunciation e-MEE-lye.
