Emmitt is a masculine German name befitting deep thinkers and truth seekers. As a variation of Emmett—and by extension Emma—Emmitt seems to hold within it a brimming desire to spill forth some profound secret. The name is long linked to the German word ermen, imbuing it with the meaning "universal" or "whole." Yet, it is Emmitt's close similarity with the Hebrew emét, meaning "truth," that endows it with a profound quality.
