  • "My name is Emelia and I was named after my great grandmother. When she was born in New Orleans in the late 1860s her name was registered as Emilia. Her father was a German of French nationality (Alsace Loraine) and her mother was from Bremen Prussia. By the time she died 90 years later she had changed the spelling to Emelia: that is what is on her tombstone. I have seen her listed on censuses as everything from Mary to Mildred. Her marriage license even says Mildred. Why she let them get by with that I'll never know. Her full name was Maria Henrietta Emilia Noullet Rickey. By the time she died she had it down to Emelia Henrietta. I have grown to like my name as I have become older. I am most bothered that people try to "fix" the misspeling for me all the time. I will clearly block print it and when I finally see it typed on a name tag or on a mailing envelop it has become Amelia or Emilia or even Emelie. Overall I like it a lot better than being named something vanilla like Mary or Jane. As a kid I didn't like it so much. Back then other kids had personalized pencils and cups and there was never anything close to Emelia. Of course now you can walk into a mall and get anything personalized and walk out with it."
