Opinions on this name please?
& potential nicknames?

Bexicles Wed 11-Nov-15 09:54:38

I love it. I also like Jem as a nickname.

Scoopmuckdizzy Wed 11-Nov-15 10:04:27

I've always loved this name.

There's a sweet little girl who goes to nursery with my nephew. Her name is Jemima but all the kids call her mima. Really cute!x

I Love it.

Jem, Jemma, Mimi, Mima

Sophronia Wed 11-Nov-15 15:19:02

Love it.

Jem, Jemi, Mi/Mai, Mimi, Mima

The nicknames are nicer than the name itself.

Eeesh, no. Horrible, frilly, flouncy ducks name imo.

Love it, used it for my cat as no more children for me.
Mima and Mimey as nicknames.

It makes me think of PlaySchool the bbc programme with Jemima and Hamble.

I always used to think of it as a doll's name (maybe because of Playschool when I was a kid?!) but now I teach one I quite like it. I think it needs quite a strong personality to carry it off though.

Love it here too. Jemima doesn't even need a nn but there are lots of options if you choose.

Trizelda Wed 11-Nov-15 19:37:24

Our Jemima was known as 'Jemmy' when little. Has become 'Jem' to her friends. Her sister calls her 'Jim' to wind her up!

Moohoomeltdown Wed 11-Nov-15 19:38:32

Puddle duck.

Sorry OP, you asked smile

DonkeysDontRideBicycles Wed 11-Nov-15 19:39:41

I like Jemima and have heard Mima used as a nn.

Julygal Wed 11-Nov-15 19:44:57

Love Jemima. And mima. And Jem. Had to use it for my daughter's cuddly giraffe as ran out of children to use it on wink. She's (the giraffe) known as Mima smile

Katieemilyxo Wed 11-Nov-15 19:46:32

Love that name!

Jw35 Wed 11-Nov-15 19:46:34

Yes! Cute

Jemmy, Jem and mimi

Dungandbother Wed 11-Nov-15 20:45:22

Another like very much from me

Littleonesaid Wed 11-Nov-15 20:47:05

Think it's very pretty

manicinsomniac Wed 11-Nov-15 22:46:50

I love it. I've taught several and most have called Jem or Mima by friends but are generally just Jemima.

Apparently it's off limits in the US due to racist connotations though - in case you think you might ever live there or have family there or anything.

turningvioletviolet Thu 12-Nov-15 06:33:00

I have one. Her friends all call her Jem. I stick rigidly to Jemima (or Mimes, Mima, Jimmy Jams, Mima Moo etc etc - child actually answers to anything).

Winterqueen Thu 12-Nov-15 12:08:33

It's lovely

Pandora97 Thu 12-Nov-15 18:08:46

I really like the name but I personally would be hesitant to use it because it has such horsey connotations. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but I've never heard it being used outside of the posh Primrose Hill type set. That said, I think Tabitha and Annabel used to be viewed similarly and they're much more mainstream now so maybe Jemima is going the same way.

This was our girls name till we found out it was a boy, lovely name.
