"We named my 1st Daughter Am?lie Rayne. (Ah-Meh-Lee, Rain) My wife and I both have very common names and wanted something different for our 1st child. People often pronounce her name as "Emily" or "Amilia" but the one we have started hearing recently is "aye-ma-lee" :) which actually makes me laugh. I have yet to meet another girl named Am?lie, so this fits right within what we wanted for our beautiful princess. When we were trying to decide what to name our daughter, we loved the name Am?lie as we had heard it on a TV show "Americas Got talent" season 11 from the Clairvoyants act. The name was pronounced so beautifully, we had never heard the name before and thought this could be it. Many years later When traveling through London for my wifes "babymoon" / vacation, we were walking through Flea Markets downtown, and noticed a children's wooden train spelling out Am?lie. We knew then that our little, soon to be princesses name would be Am?lie. Everywhere we go, people stop us and tell us that it is the most beautiful name they have ever heard, and this makes for proud parents." Dec. 30, 2020:

"My name is Amelie and it?s amazing,but people pronounce it real funky. The like to say Amelia,Emely,etc. and I correct them. If they say it wrong again then I just say ?sure, let?s go with that, only to later find out how to say it." Jun. 20, 2018:

"It is very common for people to pronounce and spell my name wrong. They usually confuse this with Emily. I like to tell people that Amelie is Emily with an A. I have never met someone with my name." Dec. 26, 2017:
"My daughter is called Amelie. I love it. I think it sounds pretty but also slightly funky too. It suits her perfectly and she is really happy with it too. I could not imagine her having any other name. The only down side is that it has become more popular over the last couple of years and some people initially think she's called Emily. I just say it again and say, 'no it starts with an A' and they usually say 'oh how pretty!'." Jan. 3, 2015:
"Beautiful beautiful name! I loved the name Amelia, but it's far too common now in New Zealand. Then I thought of Amelie and it's actually better and more unique. Top of my list for when we have kids :-)" Nov. 29, 2010:
"Amelie is a great name, and it sounds so exotic! It is usually written with an accent (Amılie) and sounds like Ah-may-lee, which most people seem to find hard to pronounce, but it's my name and I would not change it ever ever :)" Mar. 13, 2010:
"This is my god daughters name. I had not heard it before they named her it several years ago, but now I love it and I cannot imagine her with another name." Oct. 24, 2009:
"I love Amelie!! just wish people would stop pronouncing it 'amily' and correctly like ' ah may lee'" Jan. 5, 2009:
"We named our daughter Amelie in Feb 2003. She loves her name and it fits her personality like a glove. If only I had an easier time picking this next baby's name (a girl too)." Feb. 21, 2008:
"I think the name Amelie is a unique name. I like it a lot." Jun. 11, 2007:
"This name is beautiful! We were seriously considering this name for our baby, but then we found out it was a boy! If he had been a girl, "Amelie Brianne" would've been the name! We'll just have to save that name for our next pregnancy. :) Oh, by the way, we named our beautiful baby boy Korben Michael. We also have an 2-year-old daughter named Jara Corinn (pronounced "JARE-a Cor-INN"). We like unique names, can ya tell? :)" Jun. 6, 2007:

"My name is amilie it is still pronounced as ? Amelie? but my parents spelt it a different way. I think my name is okay but many people say it wrong" Jul. 27, 2020:
"My name?s Amelie. It gets a bit annoying because when I tell people my name they always think I said Emily or Amelia or they spell it or say it wrong. I get used to it and I like the name so it?s cool👌" Sep. 4, 2019:
"My name is Amelie and I like the fact that it is unusual but still pretty and feminine. People always spell my name amily or amilie wich can be annoying on the top of being called Emily or Amelia but I?ve gotten used to it and it doesn?t bother me anymore. I?d rather get called Emily and Amelia once in a while or have somebody spell my name wrong then have a boring name that I don?t like 😊" Aug. 11, 2019:
"My name is Amelie and it's a fun name. It's different and less basic. When I go to starbucks I just say Emily because it is easier, I have the nickname Ames. Also, the refs always get it wrong during my soccer game. Its a cool name and you should name your kid it!" Nov. 22, 2018:
"My name is Amelie, and I think it?s pretty unique to have a name like this. The only bad part about it is that, people tends to call me Amelia, or Emily. I got used to it over the years. I actually named myself Amelie lol so when I first learned english, I was trying to come up with a english name since I just immigrated from China. I was going for the name Emily, but since I didn?t really know english back then, I had to pronounce how to spell it. Soooo it was supposed to be Em-i-ly bUt my 6 year old self came up with Am (like I ?am?)-e-lie (since I liked the letter ?e? so I put it there as well lOL) and yea that?s my story :D have a nice day/night and sorry for wasting your time :D" Nov. 10, 2018:
"It is my name (I'm a 30-year-old Frenchwoman) and most English speakers can't pronounce it properly (and that includes, sadly, people from my own family).
When I was little people kept calling me Emilie or Aur?lie, but since the movie "Amelie" my name seems to have become acceptable." May. 10, 2011:
"This is my daughters name and i found it in a magazine. Drives me crazy when people say ' from the french film Amelie' errr no i never seen the film and dont have a habbit of watching french films ! We love this name and i have come across other children with the name in the south of UK but never up North. When people ask my daughters name they always mistake it with Emily put i dont mind i just correct them. Fab name highly reccomended but not to everyone as i chose it because its not common and i dont want it to become popular !!!" Aug. 13, 2010:
"I've had this name picked out for my daughter-to-be for years. Now I just have to wait 6 more months to find out if I'm having a girl!" Sep. 28, 2007:
