Why was Jesus not named Emmanuel?

This evening I gave the last of a four-part presentation on the O Antiphons at a neighboring parish.

At the end this evening one of the attendees asked if Isaiah said the virgin's son's name would Emmanuel, why was Jesus not named Emmanuel?

I didn't really have an answer for him, but see the Nicholas Hardesty has taken a stab at it.
