Have you considered Emmeline? I've always loved it and I think it's a great alternative to both Emma and Emily. You could use either as a nickname.
I have to say I'm not a fan of Kayleigh. It looks and sounds very trendy and a little made up. It also doesn't sound very grown-up. I think Callie would be my choice as an alternative to this one.
I have to say I love PP's Ada. It's probably my top name (spelled Adah.) But DH doesn't like it. Oh well.

today our cashiers name was Kaeleen and I thought of you
I liked the name Emerson for a boy or girl. I'm a little off in that I like gender neutral names, or even boyish names for girls (I know not everyone likes that though).
I also like Camden for a boy or girl. I guess I try to find variants of popular names. Instead of Emily I like Emorie, Emerson, Emaline, etc... Instead of Cameron I like Camden... Instead of Ava I like Ada
I'll have to try to find all the names I had on my list... Actually, come to think of it, I'm sure it's on this board somewhere
Blessed with 2 beautiful girls:
How about Kaelie?
I knew a girl once whose name was Keeley (not sure how she spelled it) and I thought it was so pretty.

Our last name also starts with a "R" and is one syllable.
My daughter's name is Jocelyn and my son's name is Elliott. Feel free to steal. I think they both sound great with a one-syllable last name that starts with "R".
If you like "E" girl names, have you considered Edith? I think it has the old-fashioned elegance of Emma without the popularity.
If I had to name another girl (tubes tied, not gonna happen!!), I'd go with Natasha. With a one-syllable last name, I also like Meredith and Elizabeth. If I had to name another boy, I think he's go nameless -- choosing one boy name was tough enough!
Well, I'm a bit late, but if you're still looking for spellings my daughter is named Kailey. I also discovered another spelling I like for the name, which I might have used had I learned of it sooner- Kaylie.
That name has so many spellings it boggles the mind! I just love the sound of it though.
Go with your gut - Emma Grace. It's not too similar. Even if your cousin's name was Emma instead of Emily, I'd say use it! You've always loved that name and this is YOUR child. I say you do whatever you want. You and your family will find ways to differentiate between the two.
