Emery Origin and Meaning

The name Emery is a girl's name of German origin meaning "industrious".

The superpopularity of Emily and Emma has recently boosted the unisex Emery, especially since it became a celebrity baby name when it was chosen by Angie Harmon and Jason Sehorn.

Emery now ranks among the girls' Top 100 names in the US, though Emma, Emily, and even Emilia are more popular. Emerson and Emmeline are two other popular girl names in the same vein.

Nickname Emmy or Emmie makes it cute and girlish but even more popular given the legion of little Emmys.
