Emery is a very hard rock type used to make abrasive powder. It largely consists of the mineral corundum (aluminum oxide), mixed with other species such as the iron-bearing spinels hercynite and magnetite, and also rutile (titania). Industrial emery may contain a variety of other minerals and synthetic compounds such as magnesia, mullite, and silica.

Personal experiences with the name Emery: | Edit

My friend gave her daughter the name Emery. She was a big fan of the rock band of the same name and thought it sounded pretty.

My daughter is named Emery (born Feb 2012). Over the phone, I've had a few people think she was a boy, since it's historically been a boy's name. Otherwise, I'm pleasantly surprised to find that people hear the name pretty well and spelling it once seems to do the trick (I'm sure we'll occasionally get Emory instead). I over-pronounce it EM-er-ree to make sure people hear me, and I think I've actually had a few think I said "Ann-Marie" - and I feared that people think I said "Emily!"

I named my daughter Emery Joy in 2013. We have loved the name. I'm not quite sure where I heard it first people always ask. We have gotten great feedback everyone loves it. Though the older crowd has mentioned it's a boys name. When calling doctors office they do assume boy at times. Hasn't bothered me I still love it!

Emery was originaly a boys name and still is--no offence to anyone, but naming your daughter Emery is gonna get her teased in life--my poor little sister knows because that's her name. Poor thing ):
