That meaning is wrong. Also, just because a name is listed on a site or in a book doesn't mean it's legit.

i understand that. but if its more than one baby naming book (not website), written by different authors, i obviously did not make up the name, which is what the other person asked.



ive also seen it mean from the elm wood or something along those lines




apparently its more of a surname in the uk and the spelling "emslie" dates back to the late 13th century

I live in the UK and I've never heard it.
Elmsley/Elmslie is the only thing I've heard close to it, and its a surname.
