I have been pronouncing this name Em-uh-Lyne like Madeline but I just recently looked it up on a baby name website and saw that it's pronounced Em-uh-leen. I feel kind of silly for not knowing this! Is Em-uh-leen the way you all pronounce it? If I ever wanted to use it in the future would it be okay to say it Em-uh-Lyne? Thanks :P

Okay, thank you!

I've always loved this name, almost used it for Scarlett. If I ever have another girl I'll probably use it :P

I pronounce it both ways. I think both are very pretty. Emma-leen sounds more elegant though.

:P

I say Emma-line, because to me that's how it looks like it should be pronounced :P I think it's a gorgeous name.

I always say Emma-line when I see this name. I think it could be spelled Emmeline or Emmaline.
