Dear Jennifer,

I have a very unique name: Emela. I come from Slavic origin, since I am Bosnian, and I would just like to know if you by any chance know what my name means.

Thank you,

Emela M.

Hi Emela,

You have a beautiful name!  The closest name I could find in my research is the French name, Emele.  They most probably have the same roots. Emele means “ Industrious, Admiring.”

I will add your name to the site!

Sincerely,

Jennifer
