Emmett, honest and sincere, laid-back and creative, is on the rise as a male cognate of the megapopular Emma and Emily, not to mention being a character in the popular Twilight series (Like Cullen, Emmett skyrocketed up more than 200 spots in 2009 and has since risen to Number 156). It's also a Nameberry fave, ranking at Number 42.
Emmett originated in England as a masculine diminutive of the German Emma; the Hebrew characters pronounced eh-MEHT mean truth, so that might be considered another definition. Emmet is another, less popular spelling.
