Emmet is a British gender-neutral variant of the German name Emma that shares its appeal to higher knowledge. Emmet can trace its origins to the Old German element ermen, earning it the meaning "whole" or "universal." However, it is Emmet's roots in the Hebrew emmet, "truth," that inspires an image of an all-knowing being. If knowledge is power, Emmet is destined to be an influential force indeed. One need only look at the celebrated Irish nationalist and rebel Robert Emmet to see the ripples such as bearers can affect.
