"My name is Emmy. I changed the spelling about six months ago to Emmie, I honestly don't know why. But yeah, people always think it's short for Emily or Emerson or something. I love it though.

"I think it is fascinating how uncommon the name Emmy is.My name is Emmy also, and sometimes it is frustrating when people pronounce my name wrong, but that is what makes it unique.I still haven't met someone with my same name. many people feel it is short for something, and that also gets annoying.the best is when someone says that the name Emmy is beautiful and i couldn't agree more. the name Emmy is a crowd pleaser. i wouldn't change my name. I"m glad i don't have a name that is boring" Dec. 20, 2011:
