Jemima - pretentious and 'rhymes'!with vagina.

Phoebe - beautiful

I don't like it but I think Phoebe is pretty

Makes me think of Playschool. It's a doll's name. I prefer Gemma.

Phoebe is quite pretty.

I love Jemima. Easy to pronounce and recognise but a little unusual.

I love it. Don't think it is overly popular, at least I have never met one!

jemima is lovely

Tough one - I love both. I would personally choose Phoebe though as I don't like 'Jem'. Could she be Phoebe Jemima?

Jemima is lovely, much prefer it to Phoebe (though Phoebe is nice too).

Rhymes with vagina - really?! hmm

This very name was polled ohhhh last month.
Negative connotation in Canada/US

Love Jemima, Mima - not Jem for short!

Jooni Fri 30-Dec-16 18:13:11

I love Jem!

I know two Jemimas of different ages (plus quite a few Phoebes) - one is called Jem or Jemima and the other is usually Mima.

I like it but it makes me think of pancakes

Sophronia Fri 30-Dec-16 18:18:17

I love Jemima, but not Phoebe, it makes me think of the word 'feeble'

IAmNotTheOneWhoKnocks Fri 30-Dec-16 18:20:47

I just don't think Jemima is a nice name. Can't put my finger on why.

Phoebe is cool though.

Coey2016 Fri 30-Dec-16 18:30:23

I love Phoebe, not so keen on Jemima

AntiHop Fri 30-Dec-16 18:32:34

Love it.

JemimaMuddledUp Fri 30-Dec-16 18:33:34

Love it grin

I had a Great Aunt Mima. Much prefer Mima to Jem as a nn.

If I ever have another girl she will be Jemima I adore the name.

DucksSake Fri 30-Dec-16 18:34:34

My DD is Jemima I love it. She has quite a few nicknames and we get lots of comments from people saying how much they love her name.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Fri 30-Dec-16 18:35:32

Love Jemima.

Coolest teen i know is Jemima (she's not mine unfortunately!)

rainbowstardrops Fri 30-Dec-16 18:39:06

I quite like Jemima. I work in a school and have never come across one so it gets my vote straight away grin
NN could be Jem or Mimi.
Really don't like Phoebe. Personally I don't think it 'looks' a pretty name and it also reminds me of amoeba.

1horatio Fri 30-Dec-16 18:39:54

I really like Phoebe and Gemma.

Jemima is ok but rather boring imo.

Mimi for nickname? (Pronounced me-me)?
