For British Jews the most famous Jewish person of that name in recent times
is the late Chief Rabbi, (Lord) Immanuel Jakobovits. There are numerous results
of a search "Rabbi Immanuel" on the Internet - either surname or first name.
Having said that there is also an Immanuel and St Andrew Church near where I
live in South London.
But then David is a Jewish name - and is also the Patron Saint of Wales.

Subsequent Emanuels were named apparently in honor of this Przedborzer Rebbe.
Amniel and Emniel (the pronunciations, according to Perets), perhaps
explains the observed shift to Emil for Menachem, after around 1890.

I can assure this list, however, that Emanuel **is** used as a Hebrew
name. It became popular in Poland in the 19th century after the
Rebbe of Przedborz, R' Emanuel WELTFRAJD.
It was often pronounced (in keeping with Polish-Jewish tradition) Amniel, or
Emniel, and you can find this form (as well as Emanuel) in the JRI-Poland
