It appears the name is on the rise; I am an Amelia and I go by Amelia, but lately I have heard of Amelias going as Amy or Mia, or even Mel. And people pronounce It'so many different ways, from the two-syllable "Meel-ya" to the 4-syllable "Uh-mee-lee-ya"

2/13/2023 9:32:36 PM

My name is Amelia and I love it. I always get compliments about how pretty it is, and I love that not many people are called it, but it is still a known and traditional name. Most people call me Emelia rather than Amelia, even if they know how it is spelt, i am not sure why! People often leave of the first 'a' so i get melia a lot, as well as millie and meals (never mia or minnie). It has got more popular as the years have gone, and i hear a lot of little girls being called Amelia and its soo cute! If my parents had known about the name Ameliý when i was born they would have called me that.

My Daughter's name is Amelia Rose. Everywhere we go people ask her name and when we tell them, they always say how beautiful her name is! We've talked about using the nick name Mia, but have always called her Amelia. We have had some people call her "Amelia Bedelia" and I find it annoying. Hopefully she won't have to deal with too much of that once she'starts school!

My eldest daughter is called Amelia. She is now 2 years old and calls he'self 'MeeMee'. We are Brits living in a Spanish speaking country and the name is popular in both English and Spanish, a truly international name. However, it is pronounced A-mel-ia in Spanish, rather than A-mee-lia, but MeeMee works in both languages. People of all nationalities tell me how lovely the name is, and she really suits it too.

My best friend is called Amelia (or MeMe as I call her) she has black hair and light brown eyes and its a very beautiful name for a beautiful girl. She often gets mistaken for 'Emily' or 'Emma-Leigh' but that could be because she's shy and quiet. We both have never met another Amelia which is a shame because its such a pretty name

9/11/2022 1:16:08 PM

I don't like the name in my opinion and It's my stepdaughters name and she hates It'so prefers to be called Emmie. Spelled that way.

7/25/2022 4:14:06 AM

It is my daughter's name and everyone in the family loves it. The only downside is that It's popularity has increased so much over the last three years. My husband and I didn't want something that wasn't too popular, but we loved the name'so much that we didn't really care.

7/24/2022 4:26:42 AM

K Omgosh all of you are going to hate me but I too have the name Amelia and was named after my grandmother that passed and I do love my grams but not so much the name... wait before you all get mad.... I just found it to sound boring or old and my personality is so lively and out going that I just seemed to think it wasn't matching... ( the name and personality) but yes I always received compliments especially my boyfriend lolz my nicknames growing up was melz, Moe, Mimi, Emilio lolz, even MeLi which is the name I use most still to this day and at work but everyone says they love my original name "Amelia" I'm loud and laughs VERY loud and friendly... I'm also a lil too honest at times but means well oh and critical =/ but loves life to the fullest too... again... so sorry to all you Amelia's if I offended you... and lolz I too was teased about Amelia badelia. I'must admit though when I hear a character on a movie named Amelia does make me so freaking happy n I do brag lolz so maybe I secretly do kinda like it... lolz ;)

3/27/2022 10:06:54 PM

My name is Amelia and I have always loved it. I called my daughter Emily as the origin of both our names comes from the'same name but the only problem is, everyone gets our names mixed up.

2/11/2022 12:08:24 PM

my daughter is Amelia wasnt till my dad researched our family tree after'she was born that we found aunties on both sides called amelia!!

1/8/2022 11:51:18 PM

My name is Amelia and I love it! I named my triplet daughters "Amy" "Emily" "Mia" because they are nicknames for the name "Amelia". Everyone is aways getting all four of us(Not just the triplets) confused so I now go by four names "Amelia" "Amy" "Emily" and "Mia". I love the name Amelia!

12/29/2021 11:18:54 AM

My name is Amelia, and I love it. I only know a few people with my name, and I get compliments all the time on how pretty It'sounds. The one thing I don't like about it is that there are not many nicknames that go along with it.

12/7/2021 10:26:42 AM

It makes me proud that I was named after my great grandmother and godmother Amelia. My parents named me Amelia Maurine. My family calls me Mimi. I also got teased with the character, "Amelia Bedelia" but that was grade school. Friends in my past always pronounced my name as Emily or Amanda or misspelled it, but I corrected them. Hadn't met another Amelia until the other day at the library. I'm glad the name is making a comeback in the younger generation. The name'stands out from the other names and people always comment about Amelia Earhart when'they first meet me. I love it.

12/7/2021 6:47:06 AM

im called amelia but i get called mimi or mims as my cousin couldnt pronounce the name people say i am very cute and the name is lovely, but i am VERY loud! xxxx

12/2/2021 5:05:24 AM

I am pregnant with our first child and my husband and I have decided if it is a girl, her name will be Amelia Mae. I love the name!! can't wait to see if I get to use it in September!!

11/22/2021 1:42:00 AM

i love the name amelia :) I'm thinking of naming my baby girl it, but i will probably end up changing the'spelling. my mother's middle name is lee, so i would like to incorporate it into the name. what do you think about "ameilea" or "amelea" or "ameleea"? im not sure i like any of them?

11/17/2021 1:43:48 PM

My daughter's name is Amelia. She is named in part for one of her grandmothe's whose middle name was Amelia, and in part because we think it is a beautiful name. Like othe's, she has been called Amanda and Emily a lot; however, as Amelia is becoming more popular, she doesn't get her name mispronounced too much any more. Her nickname is Millie and my pet name for her is Milz. She likes Millie, but will only let me call her Milz because she considers Milz to be a special name meant just for us.

11/11/2021 2:10:48 AM

Our daughter's name is Amelia, and we call her Mia. We also considered Ami as a nickname (ohm-i), but think Mia is funkier. Amelia is a beautiful name, and Amelia Earhart is a great role model.

10/1/2021 6:06:36 PM

My daughter is named Amelia Lilyann. Still love both names 12 years later! We usually use her full name, but if using a nickname: Mimi, Mim or Meals. When she was little, her'sister could not pronounce, so "Ya-Ya" was what she (& we) called her. People often leave of the "A" so "me-lia" is said. Her Nana calls her "Millie". Poor girl, beautiful real name, so many variations used! She is always glad to be able to find her name on products though, unlike her'sister Nadia! :)

8/30/2021 2:45:54 PM

My name is Charlotte. I have a little sister named Amelia. We call her Emmy.

8/25/2021 1:04:12 PM

7/11/2021 3:18:18 AM
