Other Origin(s):German
Meaning:Rival; Laborious; Eager; Hardworking, industrious
Emmily is a lovely alternative to the perennial favorite, Emily. Both take notes from the Latin pick Aemilia, which means "rival," "laborious," and "eager." Emmily may also be a short form for the German variant, Emmeline, which means "hardworking" and "industrious." Clearly, baby will be a self-starter and never back down from a challenge! Plus, this double-letter trend is utterly endearing. Perhaps baby's beauty or talent will inspire many oohs and aahs from their peers.
