The name was introduced into England from France by the Normans, developing into the Middle English personal name Amery, Emery (from Old French Amauri, Emaurri). Compare Amery , Amory , and 2 below.

French: from the Old French personal name Aimery, ancient Germanic Haimeric, from haim ‘home’+ rīc ‘power(ful)’. This may occasionally also be a derivation of the English surname (see 1 above). Compare Lemery .
