      1. I love Thayer! I haven’t read This Side of Paradise in years … but there was also a Thayer in How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days.

  1. I would have totally assumed that Amory was a girl’s name & somehow related to amore / love. It’s not one that I’d personally choose for a boy for that reason.

    Though I think there is a toddler boy called Emery locally – I’ve heard his Mom calling his name at the park and it took me awhile to realize that it was Emery and not Henry, like my own son.

  2. I would use it, sounds pretty good. Emery does look slightly better.

    Both names on a girl are hideous and tacky
