I didn't like my name growing up; everyone called me Em and I wasn't too happy about that, but now that I am all grown up I love my name! My name is Emily Nicole .. I think they sound great together.
Nicknames I have been called:
Em - I only let family members call me this
Kim/Kimily - My husband calls me this as my pet name :) and I love it!

I love the spelling of Emily, it is simple and everyone knows how to spell it. I hate the other versions I think they are all weird. Keep it traditional people.
