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)


I'm stuck if I have another boy, we can't decide on what we'd call him (not that there will be any babies in the next few years lol) but my boyfriend would like to call him Patric Pete or vice versa, he also has an obsession with fall out boy... I personally like Dexter and yes I did get it from the serial killer. Rory is a nice name though.


I still see Emma as a really plain name though, we had hundreds of Emma's at school.

I think it'd be more interesting seeing how many people would name a girl Hermione :P

Possibly, I like the name and freakily my 1st gf was called Emma.
Most girls called Emma I know really have a nice personality.
I also like the name Feli or Felicity

However, Emma is a good name. The girl of Ross and Rachel in Friends also called Emma.

I wouldn't know what my wife's name will be... but if Emma is a name considered for my child, I would definitely support it. Normally I wouldn't have thought twice about that name but when I think about it. Emma is a very lovely name, yet so simple. That name isn't really a common name either (at least not here); and with all the Brittanys and Britneys 'round here, I think it would set itself apart from the rest. :P

Maybe. I like the name Emma.

But not because of Emma Watson.

I voted for the last option (well not high school, but uni :P). I personally don't like nor dislike the name, it's just too common.

The etymology would be the most important if I were to choose a name. Emma means whole, universal and is derived from the Germanic word ermen, introduced to England by Emma of Normandy. For more details, search the internet – the point is that I like it regardless of its connection to Miss Watson. Some are very close, though, such as Max Power or Buzz Killington. (That was a joke.)

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

You wont have to worry about that last bit mate...


But Yeah I would name my girl Emma, Its a nice name

Emma is a cute girl name. But, if I get married and have a daughter I don't think I'd name her Emma...sorry lol

Yea, if I did name my daughter Emma it would be because I genuinely like the name. Not because of Emma Watson.

How can you convert Chinese names? While your names generally express personal attributes (adjectives) and it would be possible to find a match based on etymology of the word Emma, it would not be a conversion of the name itself, but a mere translation of the word it has been derived from—in this case ermen—to Chinese. As an example of a proper conversion, take the Hebrew name Joseph, whose variant forms are e.g. Giuseppe, Jozef, Iosef or Jose – all of them with the same etymology.

Nonono you're wrong,my primary school teacher named me Emma.Most young people in China have a English name in order to communicate with foreigners more easily,cause Chinese names are hard for foreigners to pronounce.My Chinese name is Wang Xiaoyuan,it's totally different from Emma.

Understood. Why was it not your parents who had given you an English name, but a primary school teacher?

Well...It's kinda like...If you're an American,your parents certainly won't give you a Russian or Arabic name.And in primary,I had a Canadian teacher...so.. :unsure:

Maybe I give my future daughter the name Emma. But I don't know yet. Emma is a beautiful name, but so known and common.
Im a very big fan of Emma Watson and my biggest dream is to meet her!
