  • "I am Swedish and my name is Emma. ALl my close family have names beginning with E: Dad is Erik, Mum is Emilia, I am Emma and my little brother is Elliott. I like this :D My name is really popular in Sweden, so it's natural for me to share my name with someone from my surrounding and I don't mind it. I think that even though my name is so popular, it still have a bit of uniqueness. People rather haven't problems with spelling my name correctly. The only thing which they sometimes do is pronouncing my name with one M. I'm EM-mah. Then I tell tchem I am EM-mah and they generally haven't problems. My friends sometimes call me Emi, Emmie or Emmy, Emi is the sweetest of my diminutives imo. I'm very thankfull for my parents that they gave me so classic, elegant, but also a bit unique name. Sure, there are multiple names, that I consider more beautiful and unique than Emma, and I think that they could fit me and my personality better, but I am proud that I am EMma. It was also my grandmother's name and my cousin's name is also Emma. When we are together, I am called Emi and she is Emmeline, because of her second name Linnea."

  • "I love the name Emma. My parents disagree over why it was given to me. My mum tells me it's because she loved the movie 'Terms of Endearment', and my dad tells me that he was the one who chose it. In any case, it doesn't matter. Yes, the name Emma is popular, but you can give your child an unique middle name. Some nicknames I have been called: Em, Emmy, Emmy-lou, Em the Bem, Emas (Indonesian for gold), Ems, Emmsy. What I like about this name is that you can immediately tell when someone is comfortable with you, and considers you a friend. They will automatically shorten your name to Em. I'm very pleased that my parents gave me a classic and elegant sounding name. It suits a child just as well as it suits an elderly lady. No ridiculous spelling and/or unnecessary extra letters for me. *cough* Jazmyne *cough* Emma - Australia" Apr. 5, 2011: Report as inappropriate

It is quite clear to me that many have become blind to the actual significance of the name Emma. Personally, I think it is quite simple and elegant; a true traditional name that will not become bland or strange with time. To add a unique two dimensional twist to my name, my mum gave me the middle name of Lee, so I could have a choice for my name when I was older. While I prefer Emma, I am still grateful that I was given the option. People hardly ever pronounce it incorrectly, but it is astonishing how many people insist on spelling it incorrectly!"
