For no other reason than it like the sound I'd go with Emalee Hope Kendra, although I think the second one may sound a bit like Hopedy rather than Hope Dee.

She is 6 months old 2day and we have been calling her emalee since she came home from the hospital so she doesn't really care

That's a beautiful choice Nicole. Our daughter's name is Emylee - we were tossing up between that and Emalee. They are both beautiful names :)

I wish you all the best in your new role as a mother :)

We have decided on Emalee Hope Kendra Pappalardo. She gets to have a part of her birth name and it really sounds great when it is said all together. We lovve it!

I usually don't like the name Dee, but in the context of her full name I think Dee sounds better. Although Paula has a good point, I didn't think of that.

i think you should keep her name as "Hope".. Plus.. why are you giving her so many names? especially with a last name as long and hard to say as that?

My name is Moni Stillwater ( watcher over the children, and I am a native american elder.) I was adopted by missionaries many moons ago. When I had seen your thoughts and hearts I understood as names to the family mean alot and it is a gift we hold in our hearts together.
I looked at the name and if you say it close your eyes and open your heart and spirit. You took this child in your life because your faith carried you through. Your hope is to give the child love and to raise a child it takes hope and Faith for the best future. Somewhere I felt this thought.
Dee (have) Faith (because we gave you the Hope already in your young life. ( and this has come true.)
"You (have ) Faith( because we give you the Hope from our Hearts) Amalee "
"Dee Faith Amalee"
" Your life is part of the past and the present and now the future and the destiny of the circle continues"
(Just a thought from my heart....of my adopted family my older sister named the middle names of her daughters Faith and Hope I think...many years ago)
Moni just a elder grandmother who has made full circle

I prefer Kendra - it just rolls off the tongue easier with the rest of the name...

Kendra. Dee might sound too much like part of her last name - DePappalardo.

Kendra

The second one sounds like a series of sounds a comedian might make while making fun of someone.

I like Emalee Hope Kendra better. I agree w/ Paula.. The second one sounds more like Hopedy.
