It might not be the proper pronunciation, but I pronounce it "Em-a-lien". After seeing the film version of "Anne of Avonlea", I think of a sweet (albeit troubled) little girl when I think of this name.

I have also seen the name Emmalyn and thought that was pretty too.

I've only heard this pronounced Emma-lien.

I like this name next to Emma or Emily.

Emma-lien is one way of saying it but it is truly emma-leen. I think Emmeline is a much better spelling, and it the medieval form of Emma.

I really like this name - Emmeline and Emmaline. I think that, truly, the name can be pronounced Emma-LEEN, Emma-LINE, and Emma-LYNN, and be accepted. There's not one specific way. Remember Emmeline Pankhurst? Her name was pronounced Emma-LINE.

I adore the name Emma, but Emmaline is a nice full name for Emma.
-- Emma McHnery  7/27/2007
I think this name is spelled Emma-line. I dislike the Emma-lynn pronunciation.
-- Emma McHnery  3/4/2008
There isn't just one right pronunciation of this name. Ever since it was used it has always been pronounced as either Emma-line, Emma-leen and Emma-lynn so you can just choose the pronunciation you prefer. I like Emma-line.

I prefer this name to Emma, although Emma is gorgeous shortened form. Emma Roberts and Emma Watson don't help the name's image. I prefer the pronunciation Emma-leen to Emmaline, but both are attractive. Emmaline has more class to it, and it's French!

"Emma" is a famous song by British pop band Hot Chocolate, released in 1974. In the song, the character Emma's full name is actually Emmaline: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/h/hot_chocolate/Emmaline.html (don't worry, the site is safe). In the 80s, the British band Sisters of Mercy began to cover the song live, and it became part of their re-release of the album Floodland in 2006.

Emmaline and Emmeline are both gorgeous alternatives to Emily and Emma (which, while pretty, are way too popular).

This name sounds like the name of a little girl in an old fashioned children's book, and, in fact, there is such a book, "Emmaline and the Bunny." But watch out, I am predicting this name is going to surge in popularity.

This is a very pretty name! I find it a little disappointing that it didn't catch on very well.

I much prefer to pronounce it Emma-line, but it's a really nice name in my opinion :)

My name is Emmaline. My father wanted to name me Emma, but worried it was too popular, so he named me Emmaline instead. We pronounce it "Emma-line". I like that this name is uncommon, but I don't like correcting people on the pronunciation.

We named our daughter Emmalene because we loved Emmaline, but not with the "line" pronounciation. We didn't want to have to constantly explain to people that it was pronounced Emma-"leen", nor did we want our daughter to have to explain this. Rarely people have trouble with Emmalene and say Emma-"leany".
