industrious, striving; work
From pioneering aviator Amelia Earhart to Amelia Bloomer, a 19th-century women’s rights advocate, Amelia is a name that brings distinction to the bearer, unless you happen to be Minnie Driver. It’s thought to be a combination of Emilia and Amalia or the invention of novelist Henry Fielding. This charming Victorian name is seen as an alternative to the hugely popular Emily. It is also a royal name, as Kings George II and III both named their daughters Amelia. Generations of children have enjoyed the hapless adventures of children’s book character Amelia Bedelia.
