I like it as a nickname. Being an Emilia I sometimes go by Emmy among my English-speaking friends. It's cute.

Cute for a little girl.
I always think of that little girl and boy on Dragontales. :)

I like Emmy spelled like Emmi. I don't like the Y at the end.

Emmy's cute for a little girl, but once she turns 13 it sounds kind of silly. The name also makes me think of the Emmy Awards, which I find kind of annoying.

I was surprised to see this on the top 1000 list. It should really only be used as a nick name... I mean, it's not the worst name out there, but it's not very mature or professional. My guess is that it came back into the top 1000 because of the (over)use of the names Emma and Emily, and I guess parents were trying to be unique? Well, I do like it as a nickname, but not a full name. By the way, I use it as a nickname for Emilia.

Also a nickname for Emmaline or Emmeline. Very cute for a little girl! I would love to name my daughter this, but she'd probably go by Em as a teen/young adult.

As a nickname, Emmy sounds fine, but as a given name it would sound weird because of the Emmy Awards.

I know a girl whose name is Mary Elizabeth, but goes by Emmy (from the M from Mary and the E from Elizabeth). I think it's cute.

A mundane, ditzy-sounding name with few worthwhile bearers.

The Emmy Awards are United States television production awards. "Emmy" was a feminization of "immy", a nickname used for the image orthicon tubes that were common in early television cameras.

Some people spell it Emy in Sweden. The perfect name for Emo-parents?
