- classic, beautiful, feminine, short and sweet- way to popular right now
- Can be an adorable sassy little girl and a strong intelligent woman.
- It's sophisticated yet comfortable, short and sweet.
- this name just sounds so innocent. It is a very pretty name.
- I love this name. It has so much more sex appeal to me than it's contemporary, Emily. I imagine an Emma being very sassy. I've liked it ever since I read Jane Austen's Emma (long before the movie).
- classic, can be used for child or adult, family significance
- very old-fashioned -- sounds lady-like
- Sadly, Emmaís popularity is too great for my tasteís, but I can easily understand why this and its counterpart, Emily, are so popular and the favourite name of so many people. Itís charming and adorable.
- Emma is such a classical name that isn't as popular in the United States as it is in England. I also love Jane Austin's book Emma. The movie, which stars Gweneth Paltrow, is also delightful. I am contemplating naming my daughter Emma Lucy. Together they do not sound too poetic, but Lucy is my maiden name.
- Emma Beatrice Traditional, gorgeous, strong and different. Emma-Bee would be a cute nickname.
- Emma Grace: My great grandmother who was born in covered wagon on the Eastern side of Oregon, near Elgin. She was a strikingly beautiful women with long brown hair to her waist and brilliant blue eyes, and could work as hard as any man, and did most of the time. As I'm told. Horse trader by trade and mother of 4. Jensen - this one is a very cool masculine sounding name but not too popular yet.
- Emma Jane: Emma is becoming very trendy, but for good reason-- it's beautiful and old fashioned. I love Emma and Jane together as it is a
pleasing and feminine combination (and Emma is a wonderful novel by Jane Austen)
- Emma Kate: I think both names are timeless. They have been around forever and will never go out of style. In addition, they are cute for a little kid, yet sophisticated for an adult.
- Emma Lee: I like Emma Lee, It's like Emily, only totally different.
- Emma Lillie: Both of these are family names for me. I think they are so beautiful together. Sweet and simple.
- Emma Monet: Emma because it's a simple, elegant, old-fashioned name that invokes images of a southern belle sipping iced tea out on the veranda. And Monet after the French Impressionist painter Claude Monet whose work is dreamy and intriguing and mysterious.
Emma was originally a short form of names beginning with the Germanic element "ermen" meaning "whole" or "universal" (i.e., Ermengard, Ermentrude).
