I recently got my marks back for my history essay on the suffragettes and I have been meaning to this name for a while so here it is Emmeline. Emmeline is From an Old French form of the germanic name Amelina, originally a diminutive of Germanic names beginning with the element amal meaning “work”. The Normans introduced this name to England. Emmeline is 573 in England but doesn’t rank anywhere else though Emmalyn and Emmaline rank in America. Emmeline could rise due to the similarity to Emily and Emma and the popular nicknames Emmy and Millie

I think this is such a great name … so many awesome namesakes too; Emmelines all seem to be strong women. Surprising it isn’t seen more often really.
It could just be too long and fussy maybe
Great blog Ebs! I enjoyed looking through and love the name of the week, Emmaline x
