Strongly dislike. Okay for a boy- not a girl!

There is someone on the TV show The 100 who has this name, though it's spelled "Emori".

Seems very feminine to me. I can't picture a boy named Emory.

This name is best suited for men.

Used as a feminine name more often in modern times. [noted -ed]

In 2018, 62 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Emory who is registered male with the Social Security Administration. It is the 2, 224th most common male first name for living U.S. citizens.

I prefer this spelling to Emery, because that spelling is the same as emery board (nail file). I used to live on Emory Lane, which is sort of like "going down memory lane." It seems more like a male name to me, but I wouldn't be surprised to meet a woman or girl named Emory, given its similarity to the way-too-popular names Emily and Emma.

Wouldn't this be pronounced em-O-ree instead? That makes more sense when you use this spelling.

I actually think Emory is a nice name for any gender. People seem to think it's a male name, but it seems to actually be more popular among females. I personally prefer this spelling over Emery, but either way I think this name works well for any gender regardless.

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

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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".

Emory is a hospital and college in Georgia.

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.

I prefer this spelling over Emery.

This name is so cute and funny.

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

This actually sounds like a nice name for a girl.
