Baby girl name poll

we're expecting a baby girl Nov. 4 and are torn between two names. Neither one of us can decide and we would like the name to be a surprise to our family and friends. Maybe a poll of public opinion will help us :) thanks in advance for your help!!
We are between...
Jocelyn Ella and Emmerson Grace (likely call her Emmie or Emma)

Re: Baby girl name poll

  • Jocelyn, definitely. It's pretty and not very common these days.

    Emerson is too masculine for my tastes, and "Em-" names (Emma, Emmaline, Emery, etc) are a dime a dozen lately!

  • Emerson is not a girls name. I don't understand this Emery/Emerson/Everly trend. I apologize for being crass, but I just hate it and I feel sorry for girls that have to go through life introducing themselves as what is essentially a surname. I also don't like it for a boy, but it's slightly more tolerable.

    As for Jocelyn. . . I love it. What a gorgeous name. It's so timeless and yet you hardly hear it anymore. 100 times better than Emerson.

    Jocelyn definitely. I really don't like the name Emmerson. Sounds like it's not even a real name to me.?

  • Jocelyn or Emma. I don't care for Emerson for a girl, especially if you would call her Emma. Emily would sound nice as well.
  • Jocelyn. It was my best friends name growing up!
  • Seriously Emmy at this point and Emerson on a girl is to the eye roll worthy point. Jocelyn is also technically masculine but in the U.S. Mostly female so I vote that


  • Definitely Jocelyn. Emmie/Emma is overdone, and Emerson is definitely masculine.

  • I'm the jerk who thinks they are both terrible for girls because both are masculine.

    But of the two, Jocelyn because it at least doesn't mean "son of -" like EmerSON.

    I like Emerson Grace!
    I know both a guy and a girl named Emerson, but I actually knew the girl first and I think it is actually a really pretty name for a girl.
  • Jocelyn is a much better choice
  • Jocelyn for sure. Like a PP said, I don't like -son names for girls. Those are linguistically male names.

  • Jocelyn Ella!!!
  • Jocelyn or Emma. Not emmerson
  • I think Emerson (but would probably change the spelling to Emersen or Emersyn) or Emmelyn are both great names for a girl and not heard of a lot where I am from. Love the nickname Emmi, we are actually considering it for our baby girl! Goodluck!

    Emerson shot up the charts fast. It's the new Ashely.

    Masculine and trendy.

  • Changing the spelling does not make Emerson feminine.
