“Are we still going by Emma? Or Emily? There’s been some confusion over your name.”

Stone, 35, clarified, “I’m fine either way, I really am. My real name is Emily, though.”

When Melvin asked why she’s “been allowing” everyone to call her Emma “for all these years,” she explained that the name Emily Stone was already “taken” when she went to go register with the Screen Actors Guild.

“It’s sort of like when you register a business, and you can’t have the same name as someone else,” she said.

The Oscar winner insisted she’s been introducing herself as Emily her “whole life” but told the anchor he can call her “whatever” he wants.

“You can make up a name!” she quipped.

During an April conversation with the Hollywood Reporter alongside her “The Curse” co-star Nathan Fielder, the actor interrupted the interviewer to say, “Her name’s Emily, but she goes by Emma professionally. So when there’s people that don’t know her, I end up saying Emma. But I’m going to just say Emily from here on.”

Stone interjected to let the reporter know, “You can say Emma. You can say anything.”

When asked if “people in the industry” call her Emily, the “Poor Things” star replied, “When I get to know them, people that I work with do. It’s just because my name was taken [by another actress in SAG].”

Stone said she “freaked out a couple of years ago” and “was like, ‘I can’t do it anymore. Just call me Emily.’”

“Nathan calls me Em, which is easier,” she made sure to add.

The actress noted that it “would be so nice” for fans to address her by her given moniker, confessing, “I would like to be Emily.”

Stone previously admitted that she once wanted to be called Emma due to her fascination with Spice Girls member Emma Bunton (Baby Spice).

“Growing up, I was super blonde, and my real name is Emily, but I wanted to be called Emma because of Baby Spice. And guess what? Now I am,” she told Jimmy Fallon during a “Tonight Show” appearance in November 2018.

“It wasn’t necessarily because of her, but yes, in second grade, did I go up to the teacher on the first day and ask her to call me Emma? Yes, I did.”
