Unique Little Jemma and Her Not-Yet Sibling

The name Jemma hasn’t been in the top 1,000 in the US … ever. Jemma did show in the top 1,000 for Canada, Australia and Scotland in the early 2000’s:

That’s right … we’ve got a hip little Canadian-Australia-Scottish girlie on our hands :)
My hope for our future children is that we’ll stick with the unique, but pronounceable type of name. My top few new names for baby number 2 (which is not yet on its way) are:
Penelope – #771
Thatcher – not in top 1,000
Beatrix – not in top 1,000 (Beatrice is #170)
Cecily – #1827 (out of 4276)
Truly – not in top 1,000
Ginger – #428
Reuben – #549
Story – not in top 1,000
Unfortunately, I don’t think many of these are on Dominic’s list … but, I have time to bring him around :)  Many of our old names are still favorites, but I wanted to document the latest and greatest!

    When I decided I wasn't going to budge on the name "emmaline" I told hubs, "Look you gave her, her last name which is pretty special.. I am giving her, her first name" :)

    I have a good friend (and former roommate) whose name is Gemma. She's from England but grew up in New Zealand and now lives in Mexico. Same name, but different spelling.Jamie

    Cute. I like Penelope…I thought that Penelope Piersoll had a nice ring too it. Unfortunately our family is sticking with C for the first inital, so it's out. I love Story – well, assuming your last name isn't Book. :)
