I prefer this name to Emma and Emily.

Emmeline is gorgeous! It's my absolute favorite name at the moment. I do prefer it pronounced emma-line instead of emma-leen though *blush*. I love the nickname Millie.

This is a very pretty name for a girl. I like it much better than the terribly overused Emily and Emma and I'd suggest using it an an alternative. Besides, you can still use the same nicknames, Em and Emmy.

Emmeline is a great name to have and I hope it doesn't become overly popular like Emma and Emily. It is pronounced emma-leen.

This was my grandmother's name, she went by Emmy and I always planned to name one of my children after her. But sadly I have had All boys.

Can also be pronounced "em-u-lien".

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.

This name is cute. I'm quite surprised it hasn't touched the top 1000 though, with Emma and Emily at the top!

Emmeline is a gorgeous name! I adore it. I like it best when pronounced Emma- Line. And you can still use the nicknames Emma or Emmy. My favorite combo ever is Emmeline Rowan.

Also pronounced EM-u-line.

I highly prefer this name to the overused Emily, and I also think this name sounds more mature. I won't name my potential child Emmeline, as the name must have some Christian background, but I do like the fact that this was the name of Emmeline Pankhurst. It's very pretty, and it looks much prettier than Emily as well.

Very pretty. Not exactly a personal favorite, but nice if you don't want your child mixed in with a bunch of "commoners". ; )
-- PaperHearts  7/22/2008
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 personally ADORE Emmeline, and think that it fits in BEAUTIFULLY with todays trends of Emily and Emma, as well as Madeline and Madeleine (both MAD-uh-line).
-- Corae  8/19/2008
Very very pretty. I prefer the pronunciation EMMA LEEN. : )

Emmeline was the name of the girl played by Brooke Shields in The Blue Lagoon. The character was usually called Em.

Sometimes my mom jokingly calls me Emmeline in a fake British accent, pronounced "EM-ə-lien" with a hard "I" sound. (My real name is Emilie.) Her pronunciation sounds a lot more natural to me than Emmeleeeen. Generally I prefer names that end "-ine" to be pronounced like that, like "eye" - Madeline, Caroline, Rosaline, Clementine, etc. But there are exceptions of course, like Evangeline (eeeeen). I guess the Emmeleeeeeen pronunciation is growing on me since I first saw it on this site, although I still prefer Emmeliiiine.

This is a lovely, elegant name to use if you like Emma or Emily but aren't fond of their commonness. I like the nickname Emmy as well.
-- Summah  6/9/2010
This is a beautiful name. Although I prefer the pronunciation Emma-Lynn, any pronunciation is nice.
-- Dawson  11/26/2010
Very pretty, but I have no doubt it will become popular due to its similarity to Emily and Emma. That's why I won't use it.

Emmeline Grangerford was a minor character (only referenced to) in Huck Finn; she was like a 19th century Goth kid. :)
-- FullmetalSweetheart  2/13/2011

I love it. :)
Truly beautiful.

My English Grandmother's name, only spelled Emelene. I always thought my Grandfather was calling her "Evelyn", until watching the BBC and heard it being pronounced "Emmalynn"! I love the spelling with all E's.

Emmeline (pronounced Emma - LINE like CaroLINE) was one of my ancestor's names, and we gave our second daughter that name. She is a teenager now. Some people try to call her Emma - LEEN, while some get it right. We LOVE her name, and so do others who hear it - many for the first time. Most importantly, she loves the name. It's beautiful and classic and a nice change from all of the trendy names of the day.

Emmeline Wells (born 1828 in Petersham, Massachusetts) was an American journalist, women's rights activist, and poet.

Beautiful. This name deserves more use, it would be such a break from all the Emma's and Emily's! I like the pronunciation Emma-leen. It's similar to Emily, but I feel like it's a little classier and more elegant. Emma-line sounds kind of like a crude combination of Emma and Madeline.
-- Oohvintage  6/10/2013
This is such a sweet name for a girl. It is a refreshing change from the ever so common and boring Emma and Emily. I positively love the way it is pronounced as well! It gives me a picture of a sweet, kind hearted, intelligent young girl. I will definitely be using this name in the future!
-- MusicBelle  10/17/2013
This is such a pretty alternative to the overused Emma... but, mark my words, this name will explode in popularity soon enough. It's currently trendy to resurrect old-fashioned names, and many people seeking alternatives to Emily and Emma will gravitate to this name, so before you know it, it will be as obnoxiously popular as Emma is now.

My advice to parents-to-be: get dibs on this name NOW.
