What often happens in the US when a name becomes uber-popular? Someone eventually comes up with a way to change it—enough to make a difference, but still keep the name’s essence. That’s the story behind Emely, a variation of the top 30 name, Emily. Both versions have a sweet sound and look pretty on paper. The original spelling has some literary superstars as namesakes, Emily Dickinson and Emily Brontë. Though Emely has been around since the mid-1990s, no comparable superstars with the alternative spelling have emerged—yet.
