DH is pretty set on a son named Emmett. He said I can pick whatever middle name I want, but he wants an Emmett. I love the name, so I'm all for it - besides, the fact that DH picked it, loves it, and wants it is so rare that I'd give it to him even if I didn't absolutely love it!

WDYT or Emmett?
Will people automatically think Twilight? (DH was inspired by Back to the Future, lol)
Does it sound okay with Luke and Lauren?
Our last name sounds a lot like Edison (only the middle syllable is different). Is the double E annoying?

Middle names:

Emmett Michael (after a friend)
Emmett Morgan (after a friend)
Emmett Lance
Emmett Davis (family name)
Emmett Scott (Back to the Future joke that we find ammusing, and that most people won't even pick up on)

Any other suggestions?

This name used to not be my style at all but after seeing in on here a few times, it's beginning to grow on me. I think it will go well with Luke and Lauren. I don't think that the double E sounds bad unless your last name was something like Emison or Emerson...then it might sound a little odd.

Emmett Michael (after a friend)
Emmett Morgan (after a friend)
Emmett Lance
Emmett Davis (family name)
Emmett Scott (Back to the Future joke that we find ammusing, and that most people won't even pick up on)

I like Morgan best and then Davis.

I heart Emmett!!! Unfortunately, my DH doesn't. I've read the Twilight books and Emmett doesn't remind me of them at all and I think Emmett sounds nice with Luke and Lauren.

i like the name emmett, although it's not something i'd use. the first name and last name starting with the same sound does bother me though. that's how my name is

I love Emmett, though I prefer Everett. Out of your combos I like Emmett Morgan, Emmett Davis and Emmett Scott.

I've read the Twilight books and while it does make me think of them but it's not really something I would worry about... when he goes to school none of the kids will know what Twilight is. I think it sounds awesome with Luke and Lauren and the same letter last name doesn't bother me.

ps- love the Back to the Future reference, it's my favorite movie!

Does it have to do with when Emmett would say, "Great Scott" when he thought of something new?


Yes, I like Emmett and I think it sounds fine with an E last name as long as the Em sound is not repeated.

And, I do not think most people will automatically think Twilight. The movies and books will probably be popular only for another 5 years, 8 tops. So, I wouldn't not use a name because of that association. Plus, that series is really only popular with 11-30-ish year old women....not most of society.

I think Emmett fits well with Luke and Lauren too.

Emmitt Morgan is definitely my favorite from your list.

Indeed. I think it's cute, though most people are just like "wait, what?" when it mention that it means something. Back to the Future is DH's favorite trilogy.

Emmett is a great name! I think that unless your last name is "Em" sounding, it should sound fine.
I think it sounds great with Luke and Lauren, and I wouldnt worry about the twilight connection at all.

i like...
Emmett Davis
Emmett Scott
Emmett Morgan
