  1. It was the first boy name that both my husband and I agreed on. He was also 4 weeks early and the name Emmett means universal or whole. Despite being premature he has had zero complications and has been perfectly healthy. He was made completely whole by the Lord! We praise Jesus for that. He was just ready to join us a little bit ahead of the game!

  2. We chose the name Emmett because one of the meanings (there were many) was hardworking. Another was truth. Name meanings were important in all out kids names.

  3. I had hoped my fourth baby was going to be a girl so I could finally use the girl name I’ve had for three pregnancies… my 22 week ultrasound showed me that wasn’t the case. I had a boy name picked out just in case but after I found out it was going to be my third boy, the name Logan just didn’t feel like the right one. While I was driving home the name just came to me, along with the middle name. I wound up with Emmett Flynn. The one I had prior was Logan Wade. Our first born we named Megan Thea. I was due June 3rd, 2014 with her. The name Megan means pearl and the birthstone for June is a pearl. It fit perfectly and her middle name Thea, means a gift from God. She was our only one who I named with names that meant something specific. Our second born was a boy so I chose Mason James. James was my father’s middle name. Well, 3 months postpartum we were shocked to find out we were pregnant again. Our second boy we named Jaxon Quinn. We both have Irish ancestors so I chose to have at least each name with an Irish name. Unfortunately my Dad had a sudden heart attack with a bad fall in May and we all decided he wouldn’t want to live his last days hooked up to machines. So we let him pass away being surrounded with love and family. I had chosen to add my Dad’s name to Emmett’s as a second middle name to honor his legacy. Emmett Flynn-Robert Heater was Born 6/14/19 at 38 weeks 5 days and was 6.9lbs and 18 inches. Emmett fits him perfectly. I believe God gave me his name like he did with my other 3 children.
