Emris what do you think

LydiaWickham Fri 14-Oct-11 21:40:26

Different, nice, they will spend a lot of time spelling it over the phone to call centres though.. grin

scaevola Fri 14-Oct-11 21:41:17

Prefer Merlin!

seeker Fri 14-Oct-11 21:41:30

Isn't it Emrys?

manicinsomniac Fri 14-Oct-11 21:47:19

For a girl or a boy?

I've never heard it befre but it has an attractive sound

bess23 Fri 14-Oct-11 21:47:39

Yes emrys

seeker Fri 14-Oct-11 21:48:32

Are you Welsh?

1oredscarf Sat 15-Oct-11 11:39:45

like it.

DuelingFanjo Sat 15-Oct-11 11:48:44

Yes Emrys, for a boy.

CurwySwide Sat 15-Oct-11 14:28:02

Emrys is nice - it does say ruddy faced farmer/outdoors type to me though.

I quite like Emrys - never met a real life one, but the name sounds masculine, is easy to spell/pronounce, isnt' overused, so a great choice imo.

Fixture Mon 17-Oct-11 15:05:58

Haven't heard of it, but it sounds nice.

ShowOfHands Mon 17-Oct-11 15:07:40

I wanted Emrys for ds but dh didn't like it enough.

It's a good, solid name. As is Merlin. grin

Have you been watching Merlin, OP?

CaptainNancy Mon 17-Oct-11 15:15:53

Emrys is lovely; never seen it with an 'i' though.

BelleEnd Mon 17-Oct-11 15:17:02

Please spell it Emrys if you're going to use it.

Shutupanddrive Mon 17-Oct-11 18:54:51

Yes it's lovely smile

GirlWithTheMouseyHair Mon 24-Oct-11 13:31:15

yes, love Emrys

I think someone has been watching too much Merlin

and would walk away laughing

helendigestives Tue 25-Oct-11 08:54:16

(Merlin is awesome.) Emrys is a lovely name.

cumbria81 Tue 25-Oct-11 10:17:43

It says "ruddy faced middle aged farmer" to me as well

Lythan Tue 25-Oct-11 11:15:26

I have a teenaged Emrys and he is a computer geek rather than a ruddy faced farmer. It does make watching Merlin more fun as he has never met anyone with the same name and gets freaked by hearing it on the tv! We chose it because it is a Welsh name that English people can say quite easily. It is the Welsh for Ambrose apparently

mavornia Tue 25-Oct-11 11:22:05

ooh, I like it - I've been lurking looking for inspiration myself

do you think it would be odd to use it if there was no Welsh connection in the family whatsoever

I think I prefer it to Ambrose

ragged Tue 25-Oct-11 11:34:04

Everyone will think it's after the TV show.
But you could do worse, there's a 9-10yo Annakin living locally.
And i know a 15yo called Ripley after the Alien heroine.
