Oh...I’m so very very sorry about your loss. It must be terrible.....I’m very sorry. I think you should honour the two and use Emily Elizabeth...that way, Emily always has a piece of her sister with her always. GL!! And so sorry!!

I am also very sorry about your loss. It must be devastating! I think that you should just come up with a new name entirely. It would not be fair to the one twin that died if the other twin had her name as the middle name, instead of the first. Here are some ideas:
Emma Marie
Amelia Lynn
Emelyne Loise
Brooke Alexis
Emma Beth (Kind of a combination)
Kyle Anne

Again, I am sorry for your loss. I like Emily Elizabeth, it flows nicely, but I think a you should really use one or the other. I like Elizabeth. It is popular and classic and I just don’t really like Emily. lol. Good luck.

I’m so sorry for what you’re going through. I can relate to losing a baby...I experienced it about 8 months ago, and it was truly the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through. You and your family will be in my prayers (and I mean that sincerely). I personally would not combine the two names into one. I would name each baby...I would name the baby you lost so that you have something to call her, whether you use one of the names you had decided on or if you come up with a totally different name. It’s up to you what you name your other little might be hard to name her one of those names because you thought you’d be using the names as a set. So you may want to choose another name for her. I like the idea of Emma Beth or Emmalyn Beth (similar and sort of a combination). What do you think??
Again, I’m so very sorry for what you are going through, but take it from someone who has experienced the loss of a baby, it does get better over time (although you never get over it or forget it, it will get better). And as hard as it might be, don’t let your sadness and grief (you have every right to feel these emotions and you should let yourself feel them) overshadow the sweet little blessing that you will hold in your arms in just a few weeks!!! God bless, and please let us know what name(s) you decide on!

Since you knew it was a girl, I am guessing you were pretty far along. If it were me, I would want the lost twin to have a name too. I think if you use it you may later feel like it replaced her. Since that was the name you had for her, I would pick a different middle name for the baby so you have a name to remember the other by. I am sorry you have to make this decision. Good luck with whichever you choose.

I think Emily Elizabeth is nice. Go with which ever idea suits you best. Bolth idea’s are great, and I personally think using Emily Elizabeth is nice; but if not, I think the combo’s Elizabeth Kay or Emily Camille are nice. Gl, and I’m sorry for your loss! : (

Go with your heart! I like the idea of a few posts above, with the separate names for them.

I adore these names:

Emma Charlotte
Emmeline Cordelia
Eleanor Cynthia
Ella Catherine

My name is Emily Elizabeth and I love it but if you feel as if you are replacing the one you lost, then I would keep them seperate as Emily and Elizabeth and then come up with middle names for each one.
