Russian diminutive for Emil?

I'd like to know if there's a standard Russian diminutive for the male name Emil (Эми́ль)? As far as I can tell, it's not a terribly common name (there are a few examples though, such as pianist Emil Braginsky) and I can't find a diminutive for it listed in any of the usual 'Russian nicknames' lists on the internet. This would be a nickname for a young boy (8-12-ish) used by his close relatives, such as his parents, his grandmother, and an adult cousin. The time period is in the late 70s/early 80s if this helps.
