Name Nerds main

FOR REAL: Emily is an English name, which comes from the Latin name Aemilia. This name comes from a Roman family name, which probably stems from the word aemulus meaning "rival." It is often confused with the name Amalia, which has an altogether different root, from a germanic word meaning "work" (hence many name books list it as meaning "industrious.")
