It's so cute and pretty but it's better than Emma.
According to Wikipedia, Emmy is sometimes used as a male name as well.
Emmy from Dragon Tales. Nice nickname for Emily or Emma, too.
All I can imagine is Emmy Awards. Personally, I think this is childish and not that pretty as a name.
I knew a girl called Emīlija but people spelt her name Emmy / Emy / Emi.
Cute! I like it!
Yet, if you think this is childish, along with Emmie; I have a solution for you. Try the Japanese/English name Emi, if you don't like that, try Emme.
Emmy is a fictional character in the PBS Kids show Dragon Tales.
Believe it or not. Emmy is sometimes used as a masculine name as well. It can be a nickname for Emmanuel, Emmet and other related names.
Emmy can also sometimes be used as a diminutive of Emery or Emerson.
I HATE this name. It sounds okay on a two year old, but is wayyyyy too informal. I like Emily a lot better.
Love it, but prefer the Japanese name Emi.
Like, the award?
For once, I agree with Kayisforkeen on this. Emmy reminds me of the award, but I think spelling it Emmie solves this problem.
My name is Emily. The name Emmy comes from Emily. AND YET EVERYONE HATESSSS THE NAME EMILY. Everyone loves the name Emmy though. I love the name Emmy but still... Everyone said Emily is a bad name or sounds like an old lady.
Also German. [noted -ed]
My parents told me that they chose the name "Emmy" for me because, when my mother was pregnant with me, she was reading through the newspaper and found the name "Emmy" in the obituary section a lot. All the people who had the name in there were very old people and because they wanted me to live that long too, they decided to call me that way.
I am proud of my name because of the intention that is behind it.
Let us all live happy long lives, Emmys out there!
PS: Don't forget, that you are a treasure, there is even one named after you!
I like this spelling more than “Emmie, ” “Emmi, ” or “Emme” — it reminds me of the Emmy awards.
Emmy is an Armenian singer who represented Armenia in the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest, sadly she didn't pass the semi finals. Her real name is Emma Bejanyan and she's considered Armenia's pop princess.
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. :)

There is a character called Emmi in the Flynn book series by Sophie McKenzie.
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.
Only for a nickname!
