Etymology [ edit ]
Emilia is a feminine given name derived from the Roman feminine name . The Latin name Aemilia Aemilius/Aemilia in turn may derive from the same root as the Latin word aemulus, which means to rival, excel, or emulate, but this may be a [1 ] folk etymology.
name gens Aemilia was translated into English as Emily.
Etymologists believe that although similar Germanic names like
Amelia sound similar to the Italian Emilia or Aemilia/Emily, they have a different origin.
