The ancient historian Plutarch, in his Life of Numa (VIII.9-10) claimed that the meaning of this name referred to an individual who spoke with grace and engaging charm. Aemilius was thus the additional name that King Numa bestowed upon his son Mamercus (named for a son of Pythagoras), and this name of Aemilius became the name of the patrician family of Rome descended from Mamercus.
