eelyme: Hm.

I honestly think more people should post here. Perhaps make blinkies or banners with the name Emily? I would if I had the programs, but just suggesting, you know. What else could we do here? I'm actually pretty proud of my name lately. What's hilarious is that my middle name is Elizabeth...so I always have to be like "Yes it's Emily Elizabeth. Please hold back any clifford related comments." lol.

How about WHY you were named Emily? :P. My mom said I was named after Emily Dickinson and Elizabeth Barett Browning or something. hm....

My parents named me Emily because they liked the name and there weren't too many Emilys around then. Apparently lots of other parents were thinking the same thing at the same time ;p.

I was named Emily because when my mother was in high school, she looked up to her friends older sister who was named (guess!) emily. Apparently, H.S. emily was a cheerleader, student body pres., and still nice to lower-clasmen and a great person all around. Mum loved hanging out with her and loved the way the name sounded. Hence, when her only child was born, Emily was a top name.

It was either Emily Rita Marie Accipiter or Caitlyn Shelby. But parent's couldn't decide weather caitlyn should be spelled with a K or a C, so I got emily. (thank god) I don't think the name Caitlyn Shelby is that pretty.
