I'm still in high school and if I had decided to name my son this, I'm pretty sure someone would have killed me.

i really dont think its a bad name. like it all depends on the type of person you are. not all of the children in the world have to have a preppy name. :p
I AM!!!!!!!!!

I AM GOIN TO NAME ONE OF MY CHILDREN EMO BECAUSE IT IS A GOOD NAME. just because people use it differently doesnt mean you shouldn't name YOUR child emo.
oh god... -_-

Okay, now, seriously mate, Emo?

Alright, there's nothing really that "wrong" with Emo people, not trying to bash on them, just saying, what kind of name is Emo? your kid will freak out when they're older and they've realized that they were named after one of the most controversial stereotypes in the early 2000's.

Stick to the ordinary people, think of the kids (:
My name is Emo
written by Emo, July 01, 2008
Hey, my name is Emily but I've gone by Emo pretty much my whole life. We pronounce it Emmo, but since I'm 22 now we chose the spelling way before emo existed as a subculture... just saying, I've met a few other Emo's, it's not that weird and like that person said, just because some people use it differently doesn't mean you can't name your kid Emo.

if u like the name then use it.if u hate the name and think it will lead to bad things, then dont use it. its as simple as that. end of story.

I think it's a wonderful name! I'm in highschool right now and i think that its a great name. Now that's saying something =] But i agree! Emo is just a fad and will dissapper. But also, in the german alphabet, E is pronounced 'ay' not 'ee' so it could be pronounced 'Ay-m-oo' not 'E-m-o'

Just a thought =]

Naming your child emo is a therapy session waiting to happen. not to mention all the tormenting the child will receive from its peers.
its not a matter of prep names its your childs sanity on the line.

in my opinion its an awful name
Well well

Emo is an adorable name when you think about it. "Yo wassup Emo?" Doesn't it sound slightly good? Besides, Emo was a name before there were suicidal teens. It could just be called advanced gothness or something.
Just saying..

Just a little comment of my own directed at the 6th comment from the top 'Yea... emo...'
Um, I'm 16 years old (I was on this website for character names for a story so people don't think I'm a pregnant slut, thank you) and I'm a Metal Head, and tons of my friends are too (as is my dad, to point out the different generations). And we're not goths. Completely different stereotype there. Just saying that you shouldn't state things as fact when you're not even sure about it yourself. It irritates me when people do that. Thank you.
For the comment Just saying...

Not all teens asscoiate emo with cutting. some emos, are happy. Basically, everyone calls someone emo because of the way they dress or have their hair cut. Plus, emo was a type of music before asscoiated with people.
Elf named Emo
written by Roxxane , September 24, 2009
At Santa's Village in New Hampshire there's an elf statue for every letter, and the one for E is named Emo. I thought it was so kool I took a picture with it LOL

So... I registered here to say this. Emo is not a german name. It doesn't even have any meaning in german... I know this because I am German. "Serious" means "Ernst", and that is indeed a name here, but "Emo" isn't. Please stop arguing about this, it's just pointless...
And Sam, the german E is closer to ee than it is to ay. Just saying.
Really cute name even though it might be hard having it as a name
written by Thea, December 31, 2009
I'm an 16 year old high school girl n I have the style called emo (n I don't cut myself or anything in that direction; I'm a hyper n happy go lucky girl just so u know) n in my opinion Emo is a reaaaally cute name when I think about it even though it's hard imagining someone with that name but when I trie to think of it as a name then I think it sounds super cute :3
Emo Phillips
written by Tchanels, April 30, 2010
Emo doesn't mean deep emotional blah blah blah look up Emo Phillips he was a comedian and a brilliant one at that. I grew up in Wiessbaden and I knew two Emos growing up. It is just a name that got messed up by United states pop culture.
Uh. . .

I love this name and all but. . . The only thing is people WOULD make fun of it. But it's awesome. :3
written by natalie, July 18, 2010
i think this is a cool name, but yeah kids would beat up your child. and this name has nothing to do with the style/music emo.
