My favorite middle names for Emilia are Emilia Shea and Emilia Ivy. They roll off the tongue so beautifully, and even sound perfect for calling out to your child when she’s not listening. “Emilia Ivy, I said come over here right now!”

But there are so many options, you should choose the one that feels right to you.
