The Aemerich surname comes from the baptismal name Emmerich, which was originally derived from the Old German word that means ruler.

The surname Aemerich was first found in the Rhine region, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. The name may have its origin in the ancient Roman colony of Embrika or Emrik, mentioned as early as the 7th century, which became a possession of Brandenburg in 1609. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power.

One can encounter great variation in the spelling of surnames: in early times, spelling in general, and thus the spelling of names was not yet standardized; and later, spellings would change with branching and movement of families. Variations of the name Aemerich include Emmerich, Emmrich, Emerich, Emrich, Emmerick, Emerick, Emmerik, Emerik, Aemerich, Aemerik and many more.

Hundreds of thousands of Europeans, including many Rhinelanders, made the voyage to North America between the 17th and 20th centuries. It was an escape from religious persecution and poverty and also an opportunity for people to start over and own their own land. Most landed at Ellis Island, off New York before moving on to the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, and California. Some also landed in Canada and settled in Ontario, while others headed west to the prairie provinces. A study of passenger and immigration lists has shown a number of people bearing the name of Aemerich, or one of its variants, reaching North America shores very early: Charles Emmerich, who settled in Philadelphia in 1868; J.H. Emmerich, who settled in Texas in 1846; Johannes Emmerich, who settled in New York, N.Y. between 1709 and 1710.
