Emrys is also the common name given to the wizard Merlin in Mary Stewart's Merlin Trilogy books, specifically in The Crystal Cave, Volume 1 of the Arthurian saga.

A beautiful boy/girl twin combination could be Emrys and Amara. Amara means "Unfading" and Emrys means "Immortal". =) My favorite.

Emrys is pronounced EM-rees.

It is actually pronounced EM-riss, not EM-rees. The 'y' in Welsh has more than one pronunciation, so Rhys = HREES, but Rys = riss.

AncientAndForever is correct - this name is pronounced "EM-riss".

I like the name, but the only people I've ever met called Emrys have been old men, so it seems a bit antiquated to me.

I've always found the name Emrys so hot and handsome. It's a respectable name, in my opinion. ^_^
