I know people will say Gemma, because it's easier, but SIL is Gemma

100% Jemma a beautiful name!

KatieLouiseW Sat 05-Dec-15 15:00:22

Yeah, I agree - I like it with the J fsmile

My cousin is a Jemma, I think I prefer it this way.

Gemma imo.

I know one Jemma and a few Gemma. You cant help but think of people you know when you see a name and the one spelt with a J is much nicer.

Totally not relevant but i think Jemma seems less common.

Gemma (like the saint).

G makes me think of my 70s/80s childhood. J is prettier.

I'd say Gemma or Jemima ( not that you asked for options). I totally love Jemima.

If sil is Gemma then surely it doesn't really matter whether you spell it with a g or a j it's still the same name. If you like the name spell it with a g or she'll forever be correcting people on it. Have you considered Jenna?

I have a colleague who is Jemma and it feels wrong every time I have to type it.

KatieLouiseW Sat 05-Dec-15 19:19:40

My SIL is always asked if it is spelt with a G or a J, so it's pretty popular with a J

Jemma makes me think it could be a nickname for Jemima, which I don't like.

LadyMaryofDownt0n Sat 05-Dec-15 21:11:48

What about Jenna? Or are you naming dd after SIL?

KatieLouiseW Sat 05-Dec-15 21:29:39

Nope, there just isn't ANY other name we can use/agree on

Ok then I think J is better.
