Gender: M Meaning of Emery: "brave, industrious" Origin of Emery: German Emery's Popularity in 2016: #721

Emery is one of the newly popular Em- names that has great potential, though right now for girls more than boys: it jumped more than 100 pink places in 2009, a year after Angie Harmon and Jason Sehorn used it for one of their daughters. While the boys' name sits at Number 721 in the US, for girls it ranks Number 130. Regardless, Emery is still strong and viable for a boy, but you might want to consider Emory or Amory or Emerson as a more masculine option for your son.
