Em is a gender-neutral name that stems from myriad origins, as a short form of any name beginning with “em.” This short and sweet title is most popularly a nickname for the Latin Emily, from Aemilius, meaning “industrious” and “rival,” and the Old French and Germanic Emma, meaning “whole” and “universal.” Em could also be a nickname for the Spanish Esmeralda or the English Emerald, both meaning “emerald.” Em, as a stand-alone title, sets the name free—unbound from any particular origin. Ideal for the free-spirited baby who holds no ties.
