Beautiful in sound but complex in nature, Emelia is a feminine name endowed with many roots. Not one to be restricted or denied, Emelia captures a multitude of invigorating qualities. As a variation of Amalia, Emelia encompasses its Old High German root amal, and its meaning of "industrious." Yet hints of Emily whisper through its unusual spelling, adding the Latin aemulus, meaning "rival," to Emelia's repertoire. Though many place more weight upon Emelia's hardworking characteristics, it's the name's subtle competitive hues that give it an edge above the rest.
