simone_s : Emerson–Last names as first names are not my style, and I don’t like this one personally, probably because I associate it with boys. But that shouldn’t prevent you from using it if you like it. If you did go with Emerson, then Emmy, Emma, or Em might be a good nickname choices.
Emilia–pretty name, but sounds almost exactly like the more popular Amelia and will likely be misspelled as a result. If you are in the US, Emilia is ranked #102 by the Social Security Administration, whereas Amelia is #11. An Emilia will also spend a lot of time spelling her name out.
Giuliana is my favorite of the names you listed! Gorgeous, underrated(Giuliana is #552), and has a lot of nickname possibilities (Giulia, Giulie, Lia, Ana, Liana, etc.). I like the spelling of Giuliana better than Juliana, however keep in mind that Juliana/Julianna (#162/#200) are more popular. Any girl named Juliana, Julianna, or Giuliana will likely need to spell her name.
Parker–Again, last names as first names are generally not my style, but I actually think Parker is a really cute name. I think Kerry or Kiki would be awesome nicknames in this case.

simone_s : Giuliana is a standard spelling, so I wouldn’t worry about spelling. I love Giuliana actually.
Amelia is SUPER DUPER popular, and sounds the same as Emilia, so I think that it is likely that there will be multiple Ameila’s/Emilia’s in your daughter’s classrom.
Parker and Emerson are not my style, personally, but are standard unisex names and if you like them you should feel free to use them.

Emerson and Parker sound like boy names. The spelling of Giuliana just looks too weird/off to me. Julianna looks better in my opinion. I like Emilia alright

Don’t like Parker (it’s a last name), Emerson is a boys name. Prefer Amelia over Emilia. Prefer Juliana

I really like Giuliana , though if you are not of Italian heritage , Juliana would be a better spelling . Both are beautiful .
Emilia is quite nice though I prefer Amelia .
The other two are just trendy aberrations , like many pps I really dislike this trend of giving surnames as first names . And I don’t like the idea of giving a name that you are intending instantly to make into an abbreviation – though of course that is better than actually naming the poor child Charlie or Dottie or Jace or something !

Oh my goodness I LOVE the name Giuliana. So unique. My son is Gianluca. If we had had a girl this would have been our top name.

I like Emerson but for a boy.
Parker, honestly, reminds me of Peter Parker and a Spiderman joke my Darling Husband and I had… But thats a personal thing.
I like the name Guiliana but not super good of the G spelling.
So I like Emilia. Sounds cute and the spelling doesn’t bother me even though it reminds me of Amelia.
I voted for both Emilia and Giuliani because I like how the names sound.

LOVE Parker! It reminds of Parker Posey who I love as an actress – quirky, cute, smart and all around awesome. The others, while I don’t necessarily dislike any of them – I’m indifferent. so meh.

I adore Giuliana! Gorgeous name!!
would you consider the spelling Emersyn instead of Emerson. The y adds a little more femininity while retaining the strength of the name.

I don’t like the spellings. I am one who was gifted with a “unique” spelling of my name. I have spent my entire life correcting people on it and I was always the kid who couldn’t find any souvenirs with my name on them ( doesn’t sound like a big deal but always made me sad). I spent quite a bit of time in personnel in the military and had many conversations with other “uniquers” like me. We would commiserate.
