Origin : Feminine variation of Emil, Latin
The name Emily is a girl's name of Latin origin meaning "rival". Emily may have dropped somewhat in the current standings, but it was the most popular girls' name for over a decade because it appeals on many levels: Emily is feminine, classic, simple, pretty, and strong. It also has those nice literary namesakes, like Emily Dickinson and Emily Brontë. Parents who a decade ago might have chosen Emily have moved on to Emma—which currently holds the Number One crown—and now are looking at such alternatives as Amelia and Emmeline. But those girls' names, like Emma, may soon feel overused too. Modern Emilys in the spotlight include a number of the hottest young actresses—Emily Blunt, Emily Mortimer, Emily Deschanel—and even Emma Stone was christened Emily. And Emily is still one of the most widely-used a href="https://nameberry.com/search/girls_names/E">girl names starting with E, on its way to overtake A as the most fashionable first initial.
