  1. Emery’s delivery ended with several complications and he was taken away to the NICU before we even had a chance to hold him. Not yet decided on a name, we searched the meanings of our finalists- Emery means brave and powerful and we thought that’s just what our little warrior is! After a few very scary weeks of ups and downs and all sorts of frightening possibilities, Emery impressed everyone with and brave recovery and has been growing strong ever since!

  2. When we named our daughter Emery it was an uncommon name let alone for a girl. That’s what I loved about it. I have been shocked to hear this name on the play ground in recent years. We have met 2 other Emery’s, girls as well. When people hear it wrong they ask me Ann Marie? Or Emily? I think it’s a strong name and can fit for boy or girl. It means patriarch of the home. I kind of laugh to myself like what was I thinking no wonder she’s headstrong or should we say naturally gifted at leading others.
