Comments and insights on the name Emmerson: | Edit

This name means “Brave and Powerful.” It’s a lovely alternative choice for people who love the name Emma, but feel it’s too overused. It’s unique—spunky, yet sophisticated,, and offers cute nicknames options like Em and Emmy.

“Don't give a girl a name with the word SON on the end of it. Girls are not sons!”

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?!
