When ever someone from my class spells my name wrong they always laugh how they have known me for 7 years and they still can't spell it. I know someone people don't like it but I love it I'm so proud I put it across my wall. I have a full polish background and maybe like a couple % a different country."

It was spelled Emila on my driver's license for five years. I love my name and find it unique. The origin of the name is disputable, however one variation is Greek and means a competitor. We are strong, independent, charismatic, and smart. I know the newest smallest baby in the world will strive, because she is Emilia!" Sep. 8, 2016: Report as inappropriate

So, there are many little Emilias running around. :) Among older people (adults) I think it is more common as a middle name. So, in my age-group I'm one of the few with Emilia as a forename, and I'm happy about it. As a kid I didn't like the name, for the exact same reason. It was too "odd", nobody else was Emilia. Now I like the fact that it's so international. And pretty name, also! In Finnish language it is hard to misspell and it is pronounced a bit differently.

Came up and when they got to me I told them it was Emilia. They all were a bit surprised since the name is not very common. I'm half Hispanic, my first name is Amber. xx" Aug. 2, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "I really like this name too and will be using it if we have a girl. I think it's beautiful but I'm worried about people spelling it wrong all the time and thinking it's Amelia. With my Polish background though, spelling it Emilia just makes more sense." May. 22, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "my daughter's name is Emilia Shannon, we chose it because of the Spanish origin as my partners grandfather was spanish... i worry about her having to spell her name for everyone but my name is Donella and i always had to, it never bothered me. we pronouce it Em-meal-lia and she gets Me-li for short,she is only 3 weeks old and everyone we tell her name to comments on how beautiful it is, hopefully she grows up to love it as much as we do!"

  • "My name is Emilia and I love it too. Although Emilia is a region in Italy and the name is known for it`s Italian origin, it is also associated with the Greek meaning of friendly and soft. I am of Greek origin and my name was passed on to me from my grandmother. I do not like it at all when people call me Emily as I am not a fan of nicknames and much prefer original full names. I like that it is not a very common name and yes people do sometimes mispronounce it as Amelia but I like to correct and point out the originality of the name :-)" Mar. 31, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "Not only does EMILIA mean "Rival" which I hate, the meaning of "EMILIA" also means "emulating" "GENUS",flattering, industrious,dearly loved, beloved, loved friend, labour, winner, winning, to strive or excel =). My name is Emilia and people call me "Emily" or Em, Emi, or Milli. My Great grandmother had that name and it was passed down to me. My mother said that I was just like her and over the years, my mother would say that I did so many things like her without knowing it. Just little things that were so odd to her. She'd say that it feel like I was the same person, we even looked alike. I met my great grandmother when I was about 2 years old but then she died and I do not remember her becuse I was to young. Well, all those EMILIA OUT THERE take care =). EMILIA =)....." Feb. 28, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Emilia. And I am Polish butmy father has a Polish - Canadian background. I used to dread my name as it was so uncommon and people would find the most rediculous ways of pronouncing it- Emehlia, Emily. But now I like it as I have found I have knack for Latin langauges ( Spanish, Latin Itallian) and the name its well with these." Jan. 24, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "Im from Poland and my name is Emilia. I was given this name after my grand-Grandmother who was from Belarus. I would never change Emilia for any other name." Oct. 20, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Emilia and I am 8. I was named after my great-great grandmother. I am part Russian, German, English. Some people tease me and call me "Amelia Bedelia." I know my name is special because my mom thinks it is the prettiest name she ever heard. Some people write my name with an A." Sep. 24, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter's name is Emilia Grace. When she was born she only weighed 4lb 8oz and had tiny delicate features, this beautiful name suited her perfectly. People do mis spell it and mispronounce it but we don't care, we just correct them! I love that it is a bit unusual in Britain. The only time she got annoyed about her name was at school when she was in the same class as an Amelia and the children (and teacher!) spent the year calling them A- melia and E- milia with the first letters as a sort of shout- not nice for either girl!She loves her name though because it's pretty and she knows we chose it because we thought it was the most beautiful name."

  • "Our 3 year old daughter's name is Emilia. We chose the name after Pope John Paul II's mother, Emilia Wojtyla. She was in the news about the time of our daughter's birth because it was the time of the Pope's death. We love the name... and so does she. We call her Emi or Em. She loves to make up songs about the spelling of her name... E-M-I-L-I-A." Apr. 25, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Emilia. I am eighteen years old and Australian. I've only ever met one other person with the name! People do find it very hard to pronounce, which gets frustrating. They also get very confused when I tell them it's an Italian name....I am blonde and blue-eyed, and of English descent (although there was a bit of Italian in there). When my mother was 14 and living in London, her family went on a trip to Rome. There she met a boy (of similar age I think) who was blonde and named Emilio. From that day on, she vowed her first child would be called Emilio or Emilia, depending on its gender! I must admit, I am grateful that I was born a girl :)" Mar. 14, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Emilia and I was named after my Great Grandmother. Her name was Emilia Luisa Quavas Benitez. She is of from Barcelona, Spain and all I do know for certain is that my mother named me after her for her courage, dedication, and true LOVE that she instilled upon my mother when helping my grandmother raise my mother. We call my grandmother mamita (which I am told stand for "little mommy" in Spanish) but most of all I know that her legal name was Emilia (Emilia with an E and not a A)and the meaning of Emilia to me is LOVE and my link to my great grandmother's legacy and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, the MEANING of MY NAME."

  • "Emilia, this is my name. The name is of Latin origin, not polish, not greek etc. Every popular in Western Europe, Spain, Portugal and Italy. The original name does not start with an E but with an A. I do not like the meaning. It's boring." Jul. 8, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Emilia and I lovee it :] The only thing that gives me a little trouble is the pronunciation because I grew up in a hispanic country and so I got used to everybody saying it in spanish and when I moved to the U.S. people would call me Amelia and such names and because I was so young I could not understand why these people could not say my name. haha. but now i got used to it and I love being an Emilia because it is common but not as common so you are the only one in your school with that name. :]" Apr. 7, 2008: Report as inappropriate

Also, Saint Emilia is St Basil's mother, in the Greek Orthodox Church. I have grown to love my name, but it was difficult growing up with it because it was and still is not a common name."

  • "We named our daughter Emilia as we thought it was a beautiful name, we researched and found that the original name is 14th century Italian, which makes it even more special. We do hope our Emilia will grow up to love her name as we do. We do have a habit of always correcting peiole when they always spell it with an Am." Jun. 6, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I like the name Emilia. I am the only one I have ever met with the name Emilia. I like the variation. Emilia means so many different things: rival, friendly & soft, industrious, ambitious...

  • "I really like the name Emilia, and think that it is a lot prettier than Amelia" Mar. 27, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Emilia. I used to hate it when I was little; I thought it was old-fashioned and that "Amelia" was prettier (even though they're pronounced the same in my world- with no "ah" sound whatsoever). I did, however, like it for it's uniqueness. Now, I like it for everything... the old-fashioned feel to it does bite me once in a while (I'm a retro-sexy sort of person), but apparently it's become very popular for newborns this days, so maybe I am all wrong! I do love its cute yet romantic and worldly touch. A choice few people have said "emil-leeah" instead of the correct pronounciation, "emeel-yuh," but it doesn't bother me too much now. By the way, this name is also Polish (Emilia Plater was a Joan-of-Arc of Poland)." Mar. 17, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I don't mind if people pronounce it as Amilia or Amelia - many years ago, I looked up the correct pronunciation from the dictionary and learned that even Emilia is pronounced like Amelia. Even Amelia is not pronounced with a strong 'short A' sound, but more of the 'short a/e' sound. So whether Emilia or Amelia - they are pronounced the same. My name is Emilia and it irritates me when people pronounce it with some as strong E like you would Emily. I just don't care for that sound. I prefer the a/e sound. The name gets more and more beautiful as I get older, as I have met only one person with this name - one from childhood. I love for friends to call me Em and when they pronounce Emilia correctly. Look it up in those big dictionaries on proper pronunciation, that way you don't look like you're just making it difficult for those who don't know how to pronounce it correctly. :-)" Mar. 16, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named our 6-month old daughter this. My husband wanted Emily, but that was so common. I ran across this name in a book of plays by Shakespeare; Italian of course. It is cute for a little girl, but mature and beautiful for an adult woman. We weren't thinking about it, but it has a lot in common with my name Alicia. Her Nanny, who is Mexican, calls her Emmy."

  • "hi. i think my name's pretty awesome, although when i was younger i though 'amelia' was much prettier. now however i appreciate my name's fresh. My dad says "emil-ya" but i just assumed it was his australian accent. i pronounce "em-il-i-ya"" Nov. 23, 2006: Report as inappropriate
