That's very interesting. Emmerich sounds phonetically identical to "America". Again I would translate this the same: E*Mer*i*CH = "In God We Trust". Refer to my original post to understand the hard "K" sound and it's interpretation. The KA is revered both in India and Egypt and has long meant the elusive spirit self that some believe to be the soul. The short-hand to that long explanation of "KA" is "trust". Again also, I would translate the first word "E" as "in" because it is simply referring to the second word, which is "Mer". So in other words, it's like saying "The Mer" but more appropriately; "In Mer"
I can understand why the person who created this Emmerich origins definition would combine the "Ric" in Emmeric instead of having the "i" by itself. In fact, you can combine these words and they would still mean the same. For instance, the people of Mar would be called the Mari. There are many towns in the Middle East named Mari. Also, at Christ's crucifixion, Pontius Pilate had these letters hammered over the corpse of Jesus; "ENRI". We have come to know that it means "King of the Jews". How is this so you may ask? Well according to Babylonian and Sumerian and of course Roman language, "EN" means Lord or King. That leaves "RI" meaning Jews, but why you may ask again? Well, put simply, those that believed in RA were the "Ri", in other words "God's people". The word "Jews" also comes from a word meaning "God's people", it's spelled like this "JU's". The word "JU" is where you get the word "Judge", "Jury", "Justice", all having an element of God imbedded in them.
So back to the word "Ric", where the word "Rich" comes from, it simply means "Trustworthy people of God" AKA "Rich" but not in the materialistic way.
The source's definition of "Ermen" as "Whole, Universal" could come from the fact that Mer or Mar was also known as EA. From the word "Ea" we get "Earth", which definitely can mean "Whole or Universal" for the entire earth was the whole universe to the people of the past. The ocean is also named after Ea. In Spanish, it's "mar". I've also identified the God Mer as the source for the word "Men". As I explained earlier "EN" means Lord or King and the "M" in this case I've translated it as meaning "human" or "mortal". So in all the translations of Men, Mar, Mer it would somehow come to mean "Mortal God" or "Mortal King" or "Demi-God" .
As you can see, I've put a lot of thought into this.
One of my main theories is that all language derived from Sumerian language, that being the earliest form of written language discovered on earth. Therefore, all Germanic, Slavic, Yiddish, Russian, Hungarian, Arabic language would have been derived primarily from Sumeria. It may seem like none of these languages have similarities but they actually do very much. So I would not source either German or Arabic when I can go directly to the root. All other languages simply borrow from what was once Sumeria. Words are simply elaborate combinations of simple Sumerian words. When you learn to identify these simple Sumerian words, you can decipher long elaborate names in which the world has forgotten their original meaning. And when I say the "world", I very much mean the common world. I truly believe that there are people who know the true meaning of words but for some reason or another they refuse to share this forgotten knowledge, such as the meaning of "America". Yet they hide that meaning in plain sight.
All this reminds me of this quote :
"Woe upon all of you lawyers who have taken away the key of knowledge from the common people! You yourselves refuse to enter into the way of truth, and at the same time you would hinder all others who seek to enter therein."
