I prefer this name for a boy. It is a nice masculine sounding name.

I like the name Emery! I prefer it on a boy. Although I know people have been using it on girls which isn’t bad. It’s just a masculine name to me that does have enough sensitivity in it to use for a girl. But I just prefer it on a boy!
