    Everett vs. Emmett

    Which do you prefer and why?

    We are considering Everett in naming our boy. To me it has an air of sophistication and old world charm. Emmett seems more fun and playful and reminds me of football-great Emmitt Smith.

    I prefer Everett to Emmett. I just like the way Everett sounds when I say it out loud, and it has a cool feel to me. While Emmett sounds a tad awkward when I say it (probably just me). I guess the spelling throws me off too, theres no spelling I love for Emmett. Again just me personally. I agree with PP it seems more fun and playful though

    I like both a lot, but I prefer Everett. Cant say why really, I just love saying it. For some reason, I picture Emmett as a bit of a nerd. No idea why. If African-American history/the civil rights movement means anything to you however, I like the connection to Emmett Till. Sad story but an important one.

    I do see Everett as becoming more popular/trendy though.

    I think both are great choices, Everett has a strong sound and old fashioned charm while Emmett sounds like an athletic boy.
