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?

Only seeing this now! I understand your point, but I do believe it does sound different a tiny bit, if you compare the British pronounciation to the Dutch one. But ah, it doesn't matter :). It was quite a while ago that I wrote it, now that I read it again I do think indeed: "okay what was I thinking..."

I like the name but it's to common. I was saying today that I have 3 cousens called Emma and I knew 6 Emmas. So I know 9. D: But no, not for my child.

I've always liked the name Emma, although I'm not sure what I would call my kids yet. ;)

Yes, if I'll have a baby girl I would call her Emma. It's a lovely name.

I like the name but it is such a common name that i would always liked to call my children more unusual names.
so it would be a middle name with EW in mind.

I really like the name Emma. I love the English pronounciation of it. Yes, it is different from the Swedish way of saying it..

However I already have a name "reserved" for my future daughter and it is NOT Emma. The name that I have in mind is far more unusual, unique and "tropical". If I have a second daughter I might name her Emma, but not because of EW. Like many people have said Emma is a very common name. It is beautiful, but common. The name I have in mind is not common at all. But it is VERY beautiful :)

And I just started college so I don't think I'll be considering baby names for a few years ;) :rolleyes:

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 think emma is a wonderful name to name child i will definately think about it i think i will also try to get a wife named emma..........

I honestly don't like the name Emma much, it's also the name of my cousin's daughter. Emma is as common in the US I don't think, at least I haven't came across that many people with that name. I guess it's as popular as mine. I do want a common-ish names for my children, I'm 24 so I'm always thinking of baby names and such. Not that I'm having any, anytime soon. For a girl I want Anna Jane, & a boy Seth Thomas. I've had them picked out for a long while.

No...my daughter is named Emily and her dad and friends call her Emma but I don't. I didn't name her Emma and to me my daughter is Emily and her last name just so happens to start with a W. She was born a few years before the first Harry Potter movie so her name had nothing to do with me being an Emma watson fan...that didn't happen until a few years later. :yesyes:
