Sorry neither floats my boat either OP. I like your older son’s name.

I like the sound of Emmett and Jed.

#6 MrsT2018

Out of the two options I would say Jed goes better with Emmett.

Love Emmett. I prefer Jed over Merrick. Do you have any other options?

I quite like Jed evenn though  it's a bit Beverly Hillbillies (omg the 2nd time I've typed that word today - how weird) but I don't think will be relevant to him or his peers :)

Suggestions -

Jeremy ( nn Jem)

Of the two I prefer Jed but neither are favourites. I do love Emmett though. We nearly went with Emmett but ended up with Lucas

I know a Gerard who goes by the nickname Jed - might be an option?

I think Emmett and Merrick seem a bit sorta matchy.. I don't know why but they do to me.

Jed is nice but I don't think it fits with Emmett. Emmett is soft and nice and Jed is much more 'masculine' and harsh sounding.

What about:

Merrick doesn't really appeal to me.

Jed is fine, I would pick that.

Love this name..was on my list!

#16 Ollie83

I like Jed and Judd too.

Merrick just doesn’t sit well with me, I can’t my finger on why.

#17 MsLaurie

Posted 03 December 2018 - 04:07 PM

Merrick and Emmett don’t quite work together. The similar double middle sound and length of name will probably have you saying β€œEmmick” and β€œMerrett” half the time.

Vote therefore for Jed.

But perhaps Jude or Josh would work better with Emmett?

Jed. by a mile.

#19 ELF_em_bee

Posted 03 December 2018 - 04:19 PM

Sorry, neither.  Both sound a bit bogan.

#20 FuzzyChocolateToes

Posted 03 December 2018 - 04:22 PM

Not a fan of either I'm afraid.

#21 majirlo

Posted 03 December 2018 - 04:24 PM

Of the two I would choose Jed.

Emmett and Irah
Emmett and Zeke
Emmett and Wyatt
Emmett and Oakley
Emmett and Jasper
Emmett and Amos
Emmett and Milo
Emmett and Spencer
Also like PP's Emmett and Griffin

I vote Jed.  It’s fine :-)

#23 EmmDasher

I like Jed, it’s spunky!

I like Jed more but it feels like a nick?

I like Jet, Jake, Zach, Zeke, Zed etc as NNs.

Prefer Kendrick or Isaac to Merrick.
