  1. Just sort of found the name and fell in love.

  2. I was reading poems and saw they were by Ralph Waldo Emerson. I fell in love with the name. I had Emerson when I was 23. Born in February.

  3. I loved the name Emerson right from the get go. I think it’s masculine yet still cute, unique enough that he won’t have ten other kid in his class named the same and just overall a nice sounding name. That being said, we live in Germany and it is for some reason veryg difficult to speak for native Germans. I continually get asked if we named our child “Amazon”. Even though there are many famous men (race car driver, musical group, etc) in the past with the name it comes across weird to some people.
