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!

We named my 2nd son Caden in Jan 2013. I honesly thought I'made it up. I liked the name Cade, which I heard from a football player, and the name Jaden was Will Smith's son, so I put the 2 together. Obviously, I wasn't the 1st one to come up with Caden.

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

01/14/2024 00:00:00

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!

01/14/2024 00:00:00

how do you pronounce the name Amelie❤️❤️❤️

12/12/2023 15:33:12

We named our daughter Angelina in 2005 before Angelina Jolie was popular - we liked the name and It'sounded Italian - to go with our last name - and it was either that or Gabriella. I wasn't comfortable with someone calling my daughter "Gabby," so she became Angelina Gabriella.

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.

10/14/2023 01:11:46

My name is 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❤️

10/02/2023 01:11:06

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.

09/15/2023 18:36:24

I love having my name be so unique, people always ask me why I was named this and what it means, it makes me feel very special!!! It's the best name a girl could have!

This is my daughter's name and I love her to death. Anaya suits her to the "T", so to speak. Its a weird and unique name, but beautiful and graceful, like my daughter. Anaya is 16 1/2 months old now and I can't wait to see how she grows!

04/11/2023 02:47:14

This is my granddaughter's name and is pronounced ay-dree-AH-nah. She's beautiful!

04/08/2023 01:36:32

Our 2 year old grand daughter is called Amelie and she is Gorgeous just like her name

04/03/2023 19:02:30

It is pronounced: "A (as in open up and say AHHHH) May Lee" and is correctly spelled with an accent ague over the first e giving it an "a" (as in apple) sound. Amélie. This is my daughter's name and since I am married to a French man I had to choose a French name. I was concerened naming her Amélie because of the movie that came out in 2002. I was worried that her name would not be unique enough. Being named Jennifer and having to deal with 3 - 4 Jennifer's in every class I was in growing up, I didn't want that for my daughter. Well, guess what we entered her in a French school and there are 4 other Amelie's in her grade!!!! argh! Most people will pronounce it wrong like mentioned above. Even though I tell people her name is AHHHH May Lee they still call her Amily. So if that is something that will annoy you, try a different name. :o)

03/29/2023 01:30:06

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!'.

03/26/2023 10:54:12

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 :-)

02/25/2023 12:26:38

Amelie is a French nickname from the Germanic 'Amelia' meaning "beloved" or "loved one". It is a very pretty name, and the one we love for our daughter, however, I do worry about her having to spell it if we live outside France

02/21/2023 03:13:54

I like it a lot and am finding it in Southern England following the release of a French fI'm by the name around 2012

02/11/2023 23:59:26

amelie is a gorgeous, unique and sweet name.

01/31/2023 19:04:56

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 :)

01/27/2023 08:59:18

I think the name Amelie is a unique name. I like it a lot.

01/19/2023 04:22:36

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 ❤️

01/17/2023 17:59:30

We named our baby'son Cameron who is now 18 months old. We totally love his name as it is unique and It'suits a baby, toddler and will suit a growing man'too. We never'shorten it though as we just love his full name. Cameron is the best name in'the world!

01/03/2023 08:57:58

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.

12/29/2022 00:14:34

wow what a beautiful name, we're naming our girl this for sure.

12/08/2022 07:34:14

I adore the name, I find it pleasing to say.❤️

10/27/2022 11:03:30

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 I'migrated 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

01/29/2022 08:27:54

My name is Amélie and I am 34. I have always really liked my name in French, but in English people always call me Emily or Amily. It was very unique when I was young, but now I'm hearing it more and more in the French Canadian community. Still, Emilie is much much more common.

12/04/2021 02:50:24

I love Amelie!! just wish people would stop pronouncing it 'amily' and correctly like ' ah may lee'
