Name Meaning

English (of Norman origin): variant of Emery , a cognate of 3 below.

English (of Norman origin): habitational name from Daumeray in Maine-et-Loire, France, introduced to England by the Normans. The initial D- was often regarded as a preposition and the name wrongly divided as De Aumari. This false preposition was later lost, hence Amori, Amory. The name was probably then confused with Amery .

French: from the Old French personal name Amauri, from ancient Germanic Amalric, composed of the elements Amal (a dynastic name among the Goths) + rīk ‘realm, power’.
