Opinions on Jemma? Leigh as a middle name? Surname is Stevens.

I love Jemma but not with mn Leigh. That sounds daft.

Even Jemily makes more sense somehow.
Jemma Stevens sounds good.

Loyly Mon 13-Mar-17 11:52:59

I don't like it, sorry.

I prefer the Gemma spelling, but otherwise Gemma/Jemma L. Stevens sounds fine.

GeillisTheWitch Mon 13-Mar-17 11:53:58

I like Gemma with a G better than Jemma.

poorloo Mon 13-Mar-17 11:56:33

I think Gemma doesn't look as pretty sad

DramaAlpaca Mon 13-Mar-17 11:57:48

I can't see anything wrong with it at all. It just looks like she has two surnames, which is fine.

Jemma looks odd. I prefer Gemma, which was always the most popular spelling, but don't care for it either. Jemima I do actually like.

Leigh looks like another surname, agreed.

I'm not sure it flows well and it does sound like Jemily (nickname Jelly)?

However I think Jemima, with Jemma as nickname, would work.

Jemima Leigh Stevens sounds good and when using all three names together you'd say them all in full.

Jemma is much nicer than Gemma imo. Leigh is ok as a middle name.

SugarLoveHeart Mon 13-Mar-17 13:22:04

Middle name is never really used, so I don't think it matters what it is as long as you like it. I like Leigh. And Jemma.

Sophronia Mon 13-Mar-17 13:47:05

I like Jemma but not with Leigh

Loulou2kent Mon 13-Mar-17 13:47:57

Love Gemma Leigh S.... same name my sister has. Surname begins with S too. smile not too keen on the J spelling though

Chocolatecake12 Mon 13-Mar-17 14:47:46

How about Jenna if you like the j spelling?

Sugarpiehoneyeye Mon 13-Mar-17 19:19:30

I prefer Jemma with a J as well op, much nicer.

Jemma is nice. Leigh isn't really to my taste. Jemma Leigh sounds a bit like it should have a hyphen and be a country singer to me!

MeerkatOnMyWall Mon 13-Mar-17 19:27:29

I like it. I actually like Jemma with a J too, doesn't look as clunky. She'd always have to spell it out to people - "Jemma with a J", but that's quite straight forward enough.

Leigh is nice too - have a friend and that's her middle name.

I think all three names together have a nice ring to them.

JLS as initials?

NapQueen Mon 13-Mar-17 19:28:33

Jemima is nicer than Jemma/Gemma. I prefer the G spelling.

But better again is Jenna

Rockaby Mon 13-Mar-17 20:16:17

I'm another one who likes Jemima but is not terribly keen on Jemma or Gemma. I also don't like Leigh very much so I wouldn't use it as a MN unless it is for sentimental reasons (honouring a family member etc).

Usernamewithnodigits Mon 13-Mar-17 21:12:12

Sounds to me like it's Emily starting with a J... Jemily.

RuthB4 Tue 14-Mar-17 02:33:07

My maiden name was Gemma Stevens grin

I've always been glad that I've been Gemma rather than Jemma fwiw. Gemma seems prettier and linked to Gemstones.
Love my name. Glad you like it too.

I'm a Jemma. It is often misspelt.Especially when I was younger. People are better at asking if its with a j/g though. But if they don't ask and just guess, its always the g. Its never particularly bothered me- as long as my good friends remember how to spell it, I couldn't care less about how random people spell my name!
My middle name is kate

mummytobemaybe Sun 19-Mar-17 18:01:07

I prefer Gemma

crapfatbanana Sun 19-Mar-17 18:36:17

Jemma Leigh Stevens is a good name. It doesn't sound like Jemily to me.

Jenna instead maybe?
