Emilia: baby girl name meaning and popularity


Derived from the Latin word aemulus meaning "rival," this name is fitting for a competitive sibling who refuses to let her brother beat her at Monopoly. It is also said to mean “industrious” and “hardworking,” so be sure to remind her of that when she tries sleeping until noon on Saturdays as a teen.
