Husband and I are not agreeing on the spelling-if you have a strong preference, why?

    Depends on the pronunciation you want. Ah-melia/Aw-melia or Eh-melia. I’d say most people would assume Amelia as I think it’s the more popular spelling.

    uh-melia vs. em-milia

    I prefer Amelia both for pronunciation and because i see that more frequently so it “looks right” to me, even though I know both are fine.

  • Amelia and Emelia are two different names. Uh-melia and Eh-melia respectfully. If you want the uh-melia pronunciation, definitely go with the A-spelling, but Emelia is a lovely name in it's own right.
