Jemima, but I'm a sucker for any name that can be shortened to Mimi.

Jemima's closely associated with racism in the US, so I'd avoid it for that reason.

Don't like Jessica. It's outdated. But Jessie is an alright nickname.

Or Gemma/Jemma?

Jessica not Gemma in either spelling.

Jemima, by a long chalk.

Jessica is hugely overused now and a bit nothingy.

Gemma is okay but not very exciting.

Do you like Tabitha? That has the same kind of feel.

Definitely Jemima

To me Jessica is Frank Spencers daughter, and jemima is a doll! But I think I'm just showing my age

CakeRattleandRoll Thu 15-Dec-16 06:25:19

Love Jemima

PosiePootlePerkins Thu 15-Dec-16 06:36:29

Ooh I love Jessica. Can be Jessie or Jess. Lovely name.

Jemima. It's less overused and not dated like Jessica.

CPtart Thu 15-Dec-16 06:37:43

Jessica. Jemima seems really infantile, a doll's name yes.

MollyHuaCha Thu 15-Dec-16 07:16:18

Jemima is lovely.

Newlywed56 Thu 15-Dec-16 07:23:45

Absolutely adore jess if it's an option

ThoraGruntwhistle Thu 15-Dec-16 07:35:51

Jessica is lovely. Jemima is either a cat or a rag doll, and I have never met a pleasant Gemma. No offence meant to any lovely Gemmas.

Jemima. I don't think it being racist on the other side of the Atlantic is a good reason to avoid.

littlefirtree Thu 15-Dec-16 07:41:40

Jessica. I don't like Jemima at all - it is awful!

autumngold6 Thu 15-Dec-16 07:51:55

I prefer Jemima

Jemima! Jessica is nice but a bit dated.
