EMMANUEL Family HistoryThis unusual and interesting name, recorded in such varied spellings as Manuely, Manuaud, Manes and Emanulsson, as examples, is biblical in origin, but regarded as French christian, and Jewish, in its many modern surname forms. It derives from the ancient Hebrew given name "Imanuel", which means "God is with us". This was the name given to the promised Messiah by the Prophet Isaiah in the Olde Testament, and was first used as a personal name by the Greeks in the form "Manuel". In Europe the name was first associated wiuth a 3rd century martyr, and achieved some popularity, although it was generally quite rare until the 12th century, and the famous crusades of the period.
