From Germanic Amalrich or Emmerich, Proto-Germanic *amal (vigor, bravery) + rīhhi (ruler) The old Hungarian variants of the Latin names Emericus, Emmeric are: Emrik, Emrih, Imreh. There are written data in Hungarian documents since the end of the 12th century for the Emericus, Eimericus variants. According to another explanation, Imre is a borrowing of the German Heinrich (Henrik).[1]
