I grew up not liking the name, I remember at one point in my life insisting that people call me 'Lee' so it just sounded more mainstream and my chance for acceptance would be greater- The disappointment somehow turned into a love for all things different and unique, and I grew to love my name, and for now I see that it's quite fitting for the various meanings behind it- only now has it become one of the most popular names for baby girls..

  • "I found it very interesting to hear what other girls named Emily thought of their name. I'm a 16 year old Emily Ann, and the name has been a point of quite some contention for me. When I was was younger I didn't really care beyond the mild inconvenience of there always seeming to be another Emily or Emma within earshot. I would like to caution anyone thinking of naming their child Emily that as I have gotten older I have come to genuienly dislike the name. I have read several posts stating a sense of disconnection from the name and I can empathise. When I hear the name I don't connect it to myself. It's become such a common name that I get no sense of individuality from it. Another issue is that there is such a sterotype around the name. It is a very classic, ladylike, feminine name. While that may attract expecting parents, it won't necessarily suit the child's personality. I for one make a point not to to give the name to people that don't already know it, instead going by Lee or my surname. I look forward to moving out of my hometown and leaving the name behind. I am sincererly happy for all the people who love being named Emily, but I would like to reinforce that it's a name that truely has it's pitfalls and should be treated with according caution."

  • "Hello, fellow Emilys,Emilies,Emeleighs, etc. I am a member of your kind. My whole life, I've been searching and searching for a website like this to share my experiences of the name emily on. Just like many of you- i feel disconnected from my name. I was so relieved to read that other people have these feelings as well. Every morning I wake up...and I ask myself... "Am I...emily?". I ponder this as I type. And it's so hard, especially being a teenager of the 21st century, to not only be confused about yourself...but be confused whether your name really reflects who you truely are. What if I'm not really meant to be "Emily"- maybe I should have been a Carla or a Sheila or a Gladice... why Emily? I agree with you about the level of difficulty about everyone else having the same name. When people call "EMILY! EMILY!" not only do I have to remind myself that I am...emily, I have to figure out whether they are talking to me, or another fellow student named Emily as well. It becomes a big mystery. Is my purpose on life to find out why I am Emily? IS THAT WHY GOD PUT ME HERE? IS IT? ANSWER ME FOR GOD SAKES! ... I'm sorry. I...I didn't mean to scream. It just upsets me so. But. at the same time. I feel that Emily is a gorgeous name...and though I feel a disconnection- I am proud to be associated with such beauty. I love life. Make children. Name them emily. God speed to all!"
