Emerald is the intriguing color and jewel name of the deep green stone treasured as far back as ancient Egypt--it's supposed to open one's heart to wisdom and to love and be good for strengthening relationships-- which could make for an interesting, unusual name, particularly with the popularity of so many Em-starting names.
