This name derives from the Germanic name element “*ermunaz,” meaning “strong, whole, tall, exalted, whole, great, powerful.” Originally was a short form of Germanic names that began with the element “ermen,” as Ermengarde, Ermentrude, and Ermenegilda. Emma also represents a diminutive vernacular form of Emily, Emmeline, Amelia, or any other name beginning with “em.” Emma of Normandy, one of the first to be called Emma, was a daughter of Richard the Fearless, Duke of Normandy, by his second wife, Gunnora. She was queen consort of England by successive marriages: first as the second wife to Æthelred the Unready of England (1002–1016); and then the second wife of Cnut (Canute) the great of Denmark (1017–1035). She acted as regent in Wessex in 1040. The name Emma became popular in the United States later in the 20th-century, reaching the top 100 names for girls in the late 1990s and rising to second place on the popularity chart in 2013.
