Not true. What about the name Allyson? Don’t be disuaded by naysayers. If you love the name, go for it! I know Emmersonsvwho are beautiful, powerful and smart young ladies.
Emerson is a surname. Nuff said.
“Emmerson is not a real historical name. I'm not sure who made it up recently. Emerson is correctly spelled with one M and is traditionally a male 1st name, or a surname. I agree, don't name a girl Emerson, that would be similar to naming a boy Kelly.”
And yet there are boy and girl Kellys, Chris’, Ryans, Addisons, etc.
Thank goodness names progress is over time! How boring would this world be if we were all just Kathys and Jennifers?!
