  1. Our first daughters name is Eliana and we wanted her sister to have a name that complimented it but wasn’t too similar. We also planned to have a homebirth and Emory means “home strength” so it was perfect!

  2. It was honestly the first name that popped in my head when I found out I was pregnant… my SO and I both liked it and after going back and forth for a few months we decided it was the perfect fit. I wanted something different but not crazy and over the top.
