There's another Emily in my grade, and it gets confusing as this s the first time she's been in my class and no-one calls us using our first name AND initial, so we get mixed up a lot. I like my name, but I wish it wasn't so popular

It is a cute, popular chick name!

Too many people have this name. Damn. Stop naming your children Emily. I can't go anywhere without another person named Emily. Name you child something unique. Someone no one else, or rarely anyone will have. Like Sunflower. Nickname; Sunny. It's cute, chic, and NO ONE ELSE WILL HAVE IT. Damn.

I've only ever met one Emily I didn't feel for fondly. There is always at least two other Emilys in any given class or work or friend circle. We just have turned it into more of a club.

It's so common I get mixed up with everyone
Emily (13 years old) 2017-03-12
It's terrible
Emily (20 years old) 2017-03-23
I find it to be very boring and forgettable.
Emily (16 years old) 2017-05-12
Very common and ordinary. I know at least 7 other Emilys. Don't recommend if you want a unique name.
