This was one tag I was asked to complete a while ago (I can’t remember by who, sorry!) but ended up not doing for one reason or another. However, it has come back around again thanks to Laura @ The Book Corps who recently tagged me. Please go and check out her fabulous blog!
Anyway, on with the tag!
What does my name mean?
From Behind the Name, it is initially Germanic, meaning “whole” or “universal.” It was introduced to England by Emma of Normandy (the mother of Edward the Confessor). It was also borne by an 11th Century Austrian saint who is sometimes called Hemma.
It has been common in England since the Norman conquest and was revived in the 18th Century, possibly in part to the poem ‘Henry and Emma’ by Matthew Prior in 1709. It also gives its name to the famous Austen novel ‘Emma.’
It’s a good job the novel is not my namesake because it is one of my least favourite Austen novels next to Mansfield Park!

Stereotype: Natural leader, ambitious, responsible.
Why it’s true: The eldest, for a while, has no competition for time (or books or baby banter) with Mom and Dad. “There’s a benefit to all of that undiluted attention. A 2007 study in Norway showed that firstborns had two to three more IQ points than the next child,” says Frank J. Sulloway, Ph.D., the author of Born to Rebel. Firstborns tend to be surrogate parents when other siblings arrive, hence their protective and responsible nature.
When it’s not: Parents can set high expectations for a first (or only) child. “When he feels like he has disappointed his parents or can’t measure up, he may veer off in another direction,” says Kevin Leman, Ph.D., a psychologist and the author of The Birth Order Book.
