It is a pretty name but there are 5 of them in my office of only 80 people. Very popular.

Lovely and although I know LOADS born in the 70's/80's, you don't hear it much these days.

Lovely, strong name.

Emma is a nice name. I know it's top 5 in Canada (DH is Canadian) and we know 3 baby/toddler Emmas. Don't know any tiny British ones though.
I like Elizabeth a bit better, but if given a nn like Bess or Betsy. I dislike Liz, so would pick Emma over that.

I like it but sadly it is overused imo.

I like the pattern of the name so also really like Ella, Anna, Hannah.

However they are also overused imo sad

So how about sanna, mella, etta, Lola?

It's pretty but boring. A solid, 'don't draw any attention to yourself' kind of name.

Timeless classic. Suits any age. Beautiful.

I love Emma. Used to be overused but not now.

I like it, and think it is way nicer than Elizabeth, which i know most people love but I just find it Dull and a bit ugly.

Namechanger012345 Fri 05-Jul-13 23:10:20

I like it and I prefer it to Elizabeth.

Elquota Fri 05-Jul-13 23:03:53

I quite like it, as well as other "Em" names like Emmeline, Emily etc.

Emma is beautiful name , was alway going to call my daughter it even before I knew I was having a girl lol
Black mogul think your being a bit harsh

Suzieismyname Fri 05-Jul-13 22:16:26

They are both beautiful classic names. Elizabeth has more potential for nicknames.

Wishfulmakeupping Fri 05-Jul-13 22:14:36

Emma is a nice classic name but I prefer Elizabeth lots of lovely nn possibilities can I suggest Besty? And is my dd middle name so obviously fabulous

SizzleSazz Fri 05-Jul-13 22:14:12

I too think it is lovely and under used. Only one in DC's school

NowPlayingZone Fri 05-Jul-13 22:14:05

Way nicer than Elizabeth, now that is dull.

Kaekae Fri 05-Jul-13 22:12:48

It is ok, a bit boring. It is my middle name, prefer it over my first name.

superdupermama Fri 05-Jul-13 22:12:34

Ok, see your points. How would you rate it against Elizabeth?

GaiusIsAnAceName Fri 05-Jul-13 22:10:51

Boring but classic

Queazy Fri 05-Jul-13 21:52:40

It's a beautiful name - it's classic and so I honestly don't think it matters if lots of others use it.

Lovely name. why didn't my parents call me Emma
