    It’s okay. I liked Emily better though but that’s me.

    Sorry. I’m just thinking “emery board”. Don’t get me wrong, pretty in principle.

    I’m not a fan. It’s not horrible but it just seems like one of those names that’s trying too hard to be unique.

    Hate it. Sounds like a made up “YOOnique” name like Navaeh.

    Agree with the Bee who mentioned emery boards.

    I think she’ll spend a lot of her life telling people no, not Emily, Emery. 

    Kids with made-up names such as Emerie are stuck with dealing with one additional and avoidable challenge in life…

    It’s funny people think it’s a made up name. There is an Emery in my friends family, and he is 88 years old. So, while it is in fact a real name, I of course think of this man that’s a great-grandpa.

    bear123 :  do you know what, I had a feeling it was a mans name I’d heard before. Not that that’s necessarily a reason not to use it. Evelyn was a man’s names until it became popular for girls and Declan is an Irish boys name that I understand is popular with girls.

    It’s not a made-up name. It’s a name originally from German, and it means industrious. I like it. I do prefer Emery to Emerie though, since the second spelling seems like it’s trying to be too cutesy.

    My grade school best friend named her girl Emery. It’s endearing and beautiful. I would not use it but I like it very much. It comes with lots of cute pet names, em, emi, mer, mery, ri pronounced “ree”, remmi. It’s up to you. Some people feel strongly a different spelling or unique name is too complicated for a child. I don’t see it as any more difficult than a more common name that is long like Adrianna or Alexandra. 

    I work ems and meet and learn lots of names. The worst offenders? No harm meant to anyone named these btw. 

    Shy’quail, passion, “D”, bubba, princess, eternity, magic, Dearborn, queen, storm, boots, Zoolander, comet, ecstasy and Constantine. Why???

    As long as the first name isn’t hyphenated, apostrophed, a stripper name or “Batman” “Satan” and isn’t simply a letter “D” “C” etc then I think you should go with what you love.

    I really like Emery, but really dislike Emerie.  I also love the name Avery a lot so I think that’s why I feel so strongly on spelling.

    Emery was a pretty big freight/shipping company for 40 years, my dad worked there…As a teacher, I would say stick with Emily.

    gabrieladawson :  Constantine is a proper real name not like the others mentioned.   My favourite Russian Duke was Konstantin Konstantinovich.

    As for Emery,  it too makes me think Emery board.    Sorry.
