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!

The beast- Anders Roslund & Borge Hellstrom

“She’s called Ida. She knows why, it’s because Marwin was so keen on that book about Emil and Ida. So her Mum and Dad figured her name should be Ida. It’s ugly. She thinks its horrid. Sandra is nice or Isidora. Imagine being called Ida.” (pg 6)
