In Japan this name sounds the same as the word for "smile".

Emi can also be used as a nickname for the name Emily.

Pronounced like the English name Amy.

"E" can have meanings:
grace/beautiful
branch
picture
cove/inlet

"Mi" can be either "beautiful" or "fruit".

In the popular video game Dance Dance Revolution there is a character named Emi. It's also what my good conscience calls my bad conscience, named Emily.

A nice nickname for Emily, though it looks too much like 'emo'.

I've got a gerbil called Emi. She first was called Amy but when I found the spelling 'Emi' of the name I decided to call her that. I like the meaning of it as well. It also sounds really nice and it has a different spelling from most of the names I know.

Growing up, I was often called by my nickname and for some reason never visualized the name as "Emmy", but rather "Emi" -- probably since the time I was five years old. This is how I spell it to this day. I know one mother whose daughter is called Emilia after her Italian heritage, and her nickname is spelt "Emi".

My name is Emma and for quite some time my nickname has been Emi, but I never knew it was a Japanese name. I love Japanese names so I was delighted that I, a typical European white chick, would have a Japanese name with such a lovely meaning. :)
Of course, Emi was just short for Emma, but I like to think it's really my "Japanese name".

What could be a lovelier name for a darling girl than "beautiful blessing"?

Also, I'm confused by a comment up there a bit, especially by someone who claims Japan as their location. I've studied Japanese for 7 years, and no instructor or Japanese person I ever known would pronounce this in the same away as "Amy". There aren't diphthongs in Japanese the way there are in English. This would be pronounced with an E sound like the first sound in "ever".

The name is to short to be a first name so it's best as a middle name.

Emi is an adorable and sweet name. It's so perfect for a girl. :D.

My friend's newborn little girl's first name is Emi. Dad is Japanese, mom is American white. It's a great name; Japanese, but with a familiar enough pronunciation for Americans to be able to pronounce easily.

I named my daughter Emi and my son Ian. They have a hyphenated last name so I wanted short first names to go with it. Emi fits my daughter very well. She's very girly and sweet, and was born weighing a pound and a half. A small name for a small girl. :)

I like Emi as a different way of spelling Emmy after Emmy Rossum.
