Mulling this one over. I like it as long as I don't think "Clarkson."

What short versions are there?

Actually I do quite like it

TeacupTempest Wed 17-Aug-11 12:27:28

Oh my god that is not doing the name any favours. shudder

There are too many angry celebrities called Jeremy.

Like it - Jem and Jerry are very cute nicknames.
Only problem with be the Kyle association.

i think of the pearl jam song 'jeremy' which isn't a great association

SaffronCake Wed 17-Aug-11 13:34:21

It's a shame because it sounds nice, but a Jeremy as a lot to live down on first impressions.

HAS not as

I love the name Jeremy.

Sadly, there are a few TV presenters named Jeremy who have done the name not service.

I know a couple of very cute Jerrrys, and Jem is a nice nn.

I like Jeremy a lot. Classic and not overused. Jem would be a cute nickname.

jasper Wed 17-Aug-11 13:39:45

Personally I wouldn't if I were you

shrinkingnora Wed 17-Aug-11 14:19:56

It's DS2's middle name (after my late uncle) and my brother's middle name and I love it. I wish I'd been brave enough to use it for the first name. Love th nickname Jem as well.

RemusLupinsBiggestGroupie Wed 17-Aug-11 14:20:08

I quite like it and I really like Jem.

EverythingsNotRosie Wed 17-Aug-11 14:24:40

I have a friend called Jeremy. Apparently there's a danger of the nickname Jiz as well as Jezza...

minipie Wed 17-Aug-11 15:14:08

I like it, but don't like the Clarkson/Kyle associations and really don't like Jerry or Jez.

How about Justin? (been pondering this name in the last couple of days as being due a revival...)

InstantAtom Wed 17-Aug-11 15:52:04

Jeremy has pampered Tory overtones.

I like Jerome and Jeremiah smile

said Wed 17-Aug-11 15:55:55

Wet including all nicknames. Actually, no, Jerry is pretty good but Jem is bloody awful

said Wed 17-Aug-11 15:56:31

And Jerry only works if you're American
