I ask that, because I personally LOVE the name EMMA, it may be a silly question and I only ask just for fun.. And with Emma Watson in mind it would be kinda cool. Hope I posted this in the right section. :king:

I do like the name Emma, but I also like the names Alice and Madison. I would have to think about it...

If it was a girl maybe. I would try to avoid calling my boy Emma.
That might cause some bullying.

this is the same reason that would put me off, although saying that-I'm not sure how many babies are being called Emma at the moment, people seem to be opting for different names at the moment. But I would still be put off as I see it as a common name myself.

I think Emma would be a great name for my daughter if I had one.

Unless I somehow managed to overcome the odds and marry Emma Watson. Then I would have to pick something different :P

Only if it's a girl.

Possibly not even then. While I think "Emma Watson" is a beautiful name, "Emma" sounds rather old-fashioned to my ears. That may be a German thing, though, it sounds much more appealing in an English context.

When I first became a fan (at age 11,5) I started loving the name Emma. But having grown up I don't really care for the name anymore, it's a sweet name and I'll always associate it with Watson (even though I've had friends named Emma). So no way I'd ever name my baby Emma. There's so many other gorgeous names out there!

No it's way to common. I prefer names that's not so popular.

True. Same in Dutch...but that's because of the Queen's greatgreatgrandmother who also was queen. Then again...I rather prefer English names...as I think that most Dutch names are pretty ugly.

True. I like the name, but in Germany it's mostly associated with elderly ladies. And thinking of the phrase "Tante Emma Laden" it might cause some bullying (you could translate that with "Aunt Emma Shop", and it's a common description for really small, dusty shops run by elderly women where you can buy groceries, sweets and papers - most of them have closed down in the past ten years, though, because said women became to old to run the business and with all those modern supermarkets it wasn't profitable to continue them, so that description might not be common among small children nowadays, I'm not sure).
I've heard that the name is getting more popular with every year, so the image might change.

I've always liked the name Emma, Louise has always been one of my top choices though, I also like Charlotte and Daisy.

I just hope I don't have a son because they are stuck with Rory and Ricardo! :D (Stoke players :P)

Emma is a very beautiful name. I love it and would definitely consider it. :)

And you are right, cbmac, Rachel totally took it. Poor Monica!
But, as she said, she loved Rachel more than the name so everything was cool. :)

Not to insult anyone, but actually, I'm not that fond of the name Emma...I think it's beautiful for a British girl, but not for a Dutch one...don't know, it just doesn't sound right in Dutch.

I don't understand why some people say this name doesn't sound good in Dutch, I mean, does it have a difference of pronounciation in English and in Dutch?
