In response to people who think Emerson/Emersyn can only be a boy's name, then what about Madison? MADISON is a girl's name yet nobody cares about the fact that 1. it has SON in it and 2. It was originally a male's name. Its time to get over the fact and get used to the word "unisex"!!! Boy names are becoming girl names. I see no problem with naming a girl Emerson, Hayden, Riley, Ryan, Peyton, Madison, Carson, or any other "boy" name. Change is coming!!!

I think the name is more for a boy. My son is named Kaiden Emmerson and he is every bit of his name.

Emerson is clearly a boys name. My name is Emerson and by my personality I couldn't imagine a girl having my name. Emerson is a very masculine name and I go by Em, Emer, or just plain Emerson. I am proud of my name and if I were a girl I would definitely not want to be named Emerson, just because it sounds so masculine. And for the person who said Emerson is an ugly boy name, they can screw themselves, I take offense by them calling my name ugly.

My daughter is naming her baby daughter Emersyn Aleese, and we LOVE IT!!! I know, I know! All you haters out there, it's been a boys name FOREVER! Not anymore!! Times are changing...and people need to GET OVER IT! My daughter has always like Emmy, because it sounded cute but only wanted it as a nickname not a given name. Emma and Emily are SOOO over used! Emersyn was the perfect solution! To us, it sounds VERY feminine! To all of you who think it's only a boys name---NOT for long! It's to beautiful of a name to just be for a boy!! Just like generations ago Ashley, Aubrey and Lindsey were boys names, but not anymore! They also sounded too feminine and are now considered girls names.
