Welcome to the board, bro!

Congratulations also on the soon-to-be little one and wishing you much happiness and of course also to your lovely wife! Masha-Allah, how beautiful that you are about to have a little girl who'll In-sha-Allah be the coolness of your eyes and the coolness of your wife's eyes as well! Great news, brother.

Barakallahu feek (may Allah bless you).

From Google, I found the following information on the name "Amelia:"
Amelia is a name with Latin origins. Amelia originally comes from the name Amalia, which was derived from the Germanic name Amala. The root element Amal means "work."
Also, there's a fatwa that I'm quoting you so that you may read and understand about this matter in greater detail and make your decision accordingly: Keeping names for children: Which names are preferred? Which are disliked?

Wishing you and your wife goodness and happiness,

:wa:

Seems that the name Amelia has two different origins, Latin and Arabic.

The meaning of the name Amelia is Trustworthy, beautiful

Name Amelia In Arabic : عملية

"Am(i)liyyah"

Beautiful name anyways. Congratulations to you and your wife about the new daughter.
