"My daughter is named Emerald. There is a lot of personal meaning in that name to my husband and me, so it wasn't just "Oh, I want to name her after a pretty gem". The only negative things with her name now are that people think her name is "Emeril" after the chef, but that will fade when he loses popularity, and people assume we named her after a gemstone and "wealth"."
