I'll be honest its really not my style but if you keep going back to it since before your first pregnancy I think you might have a winner here original.gif

I really like it, but it does immediately make me think twilight which puts me off, though I am hoping with the movies being finished now that will become less over time.

I love it and I don't know much about Twilight. I saw a couple of the movies, but I don't really remember Emmett in them.

It actually makes me think of 'Doc' from the 'Back to the Future' movies moreso than 'Twilight'.  original.gif I really like the name.

It's a perfectly okay name but I don't love it. Reminds me of the character from Keeping up Appearances"

It's not a name I would choose but I don't hate it. It is more of a last name to me though and I'm not big on that.

I've never seen Twilight so I don't think of that movie. I do think Back to the Future though. I wouldn't say that's a bad thing.  original.gif
