Emanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuil or Immanuel are personal names and surnames deriving from ( Hebrew: עמנואל, God is with us), a prophetic name used in Isaiah 7:14. The middle letter "m" is doubled in Hebrew giving rise to the co-existence of single "m" and double "mm" variants in many languages.
The name is common to both Jewish and Christian naming traditions, interpreted in Judaism without messianic significance, but by Christians in the light of
Gospel of Matthew 1:23 as a name or title relating to Jesus.
The name has many variant spellings, including
Emanuele in Italy, Imanol in Basque and Manuel in Portugal and Spain.
