This actually sounds like a nice name for a girl.

This is my Father's name. I like that his nickname is "Em". I think that is super cute!

I prefer this spelling over Emery.

I do like this name. I could see it being on a girl definitely! I think it would actually be prettier on a girl more than a boy.

The name is much nicer on a boy than a girl, I think, but either way it also makes me think of Scooby Doo saying "Emily".

Aside from the fact that an emory board is something you use to file your nails down, I think this is a really good boy's name.

It is an emery board, not an emory board. Emery is a very hard rock type used to make abrasive powder.

I recently named my son Emory! Please don't name your daughters this- it's so hard when so many cute boys names are taken over by girls!

I've always known Emory/Emery to be a man's name. A few years ago, my favorite cousin named her daughter Emory. I was heartbroken. It's a terrible name for girls.

My first name is Emory. I have always hated it as everyone always thought I was a boy. Most definitely I am not! To make matters worse, my middle name is Lou. So family called me Emmy Lou. How painful! I was named after both grandmothers. In recent times I have learned that my English immigrant family had passed the name Emory down for 200 years. Now I carry the name with pride. BTW, I have met several people who have named their babies Emory. I guess if you wait long enough, you can learn to be proud of what you were named.

This spelling reminds me too much of the word, memory. I prefer the spelling of Emery and this name ONLY for a boy. I do not like it on a girl at all.

I like Emory for a boy and Emerie for a girl.
