    The transliteration is "Эмили".
    It also may be "translated" as Эмилия. I personally prefer transliterations but tastes differ of course.

    Perhaps the reason your friends have given you so many different ways to spell it is because there are so many different dialects in Russia. Take Muscovite Dialect(most widely understood) for example, where your name would be "Абуакбар."

    The transliteration is "Эмили

    That is how I spell it, so I guess I'm right.


    Take Muscovite Dialect(most widely understood) for example, where your name would be "Абуакбар.

    Emily comes to be that? wow, are you sure?

    "Абуакбар" is certainly not "Emily".

    Yes, and I wonder why he bothers. He's shooting fish in the proverbial barrel.
    А если отнять еще одну?

    Sorry, sorry. It's a long dislike I've always had of people who run up and ask "Ooh! Ooh! What's my name in X language?" I mean, c'mon, your name is your name, and it's not going to change just because you start speaking Punjabi or whatever. I mean sure, you've got John - Juan - Ivan and all that, but if my name is Michael and I go to Russia, I expect to be called "Michael" and not "Михайл." Plus, many languages don't have an equivalent for a certain name. Some people are just looking for a transliterated verson of their own name, in which case, LEARN THE DAMN ALPHABET! At any rate, for some reason it really bugs me, so I figure if you don't know the above, can't find the answer for yourself, blindly trust a bunch of strange people on the Internet, and actually believe the ridiculous answer a mysterious "Pravit" gives you because he mutters some crap about Muscovite Dialect, you deserve to walk around being called "Abu Akbar" for a while It's all in good fun. It's not like you'll go through your entire life being called "Abu Akbar" before figuring out that's not really your name And if you never do, who knows, maybe you secretly like the name

    Well yeah I know the alphabet, but when you have 5 different people spelling it 5 different ways you kinda wonder. I was just gonna see what the most common spelling is. I mean its not a vey hard name but everyone seems to want to confuse me. and when you're just starting out, you tend to go with what people with experience in the language say. Especially if they are the ones helping to teach you. Yes my name will always be Emily...no changing that. It's been the same in every language that I've learned. This is the first time I've tackled a language with a different alphabet. Next I'm going to hit arabic and hey pravit I hear you speak it...guess who I'm gona be running to?
    yours,
    AbuAkbar

    Hey, it's nice to see that some people can still take a joke these days! Why, I believe Pravit's approval rating of Tambakis has jumped up 15 points! I'd be glad to help you out with Russian(although the native speakerse can probably be of much more assistance there), if you have AIM my screenname is deviousfivesix. I'm still a beginner in Arabic myself, but you could ask Mixaelus - he's on the board here. If you have AIM, his screenname is Mixaelus. He's from Saudi and always answers the questions I ask him(sometimes I wonder if he's playing tricks on me too ) You said this is the first time you have tackled a language with another alphabet, what other languages have you learned? How long have you been studying Russian, and what have you been using to study it? If you don't mind me asking, why did you pick Russian? Sorry if you might have answered this in another post, but I've forgotten if you did.

    oooh 15 WHOLE points??? thats awesome, I should get a gold star huh? Yeah I've read some of your posts, oh good times...hehehe. I chose russian just because I'm insane like that. I like the language and I also had a godmother who wouldnt call me by my name, because she was upset my parents didnt name me dasha. so to her I was dasha or dashushka, I'm guessing that had something to do with my choice. I spoke spanish when I was younger, I've lost alot now; I hear it spoken at my school but no one I know speaks it. I also speak some german, and irish. I'm dabbling in some serbo-croat, it helps with the russian, and people i know actually speak it, its amazing! I have been studying it for about 5 months now, I started with a little phrase book to build my vocab. I have these Living Language CD's now but my former teacher told my to forget them and get some old text books.I've got a few other little books too. tah dah! thats me
