Emery Name Meaning

A variant of Emmerich, Emery is a unisex name meaning “home strength.” In recent years, Emery has been shifting to lean more towards the girls, entering the Top 100 Girl Names for the first time in 2018.

Emery’s appealing sound is certainly her strongest attribute along with her styling. She serves as a modern spin on Emily, giving parents the Em- start they love and the adorable nickname Emmy without all the popularity. She also has surname vibes, another strong trend of today seen in Madison, Kennedy, and Avery. As if she wasn’t nailing enough trends, she’s also a nature name, as emery is a type of stone.

Emery is youthful to the ear, but we think she will age just fine in the age of Chloe, Kinsley, and Riley. A little Emery is sure to be rowdy, living true to her name. She’s always ready to slay imaginary dragons but will arrive in time for tea without any fuss. We love the spunk of this name and can’t wait to see more of it.

There are several variants of the name including Emory, Emerie, and Emmarie, though Emery remains the most popular. Some names similar to Emery’s style are Aubrey, Finley, and Oakley.

  1. My husband and I decided to name our first born after the band Emery because they have a song that is our song and we wanted her to have a name that meant something to us!
