emily

LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > italic > latin
ORIGIN:
latin 
NAME ROOT:
ÆMŭLUS > ÆMĭLĭUS > ÆMĭLĭA
MEANING:
This name derives from the Latin “Æmŭlus > Æmĭlĭus > Æmĭlĭa”, meaning “imitating, rivaling”. The gens Aemilia, originally written Aimilia, was one of the most ancient patrician houses at Rome. The family was said to have originated in the reign of Numa Pompilius, the second King of Rome, and its members held the highest offices of the state, from the early decades of the Republic to imperial times. The name Emily has been used as a vernacular form of the Germanic “Amelia”, up to the nineteenth century. Used since the Middle Ages, it was popular in the 19th century and is once again today. Émilie de Vialar (1797–1856) was a French nun who founded the missionary congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Apparition. She is revered as a saint by the Catholic Church. Émilie Tavernier Gamelin (1800–1851) was a French Canadian social worker and Roman Catholic Religious Sister.
