"I'm a Jemima and I love my name! It's different and I have never met anyone else with this name. I'm From the UK but interesting to see how many others there are! My mum named me Jemima because my dad's nickname was dove and that's what Jemima means. It's not often spelt wrong but if it is I think it's funny. My close friends and family call me Jem but I like being called my full name too. I would recommend my name to all because it's unusual and fun." Jan. 5, 2018:
"I'm called Jemima and I have coincidentally met 1 of the other 66 Jemima's, she went to the same High School as me. I don't live in America, nor was I born there but I guess I just thought more people were called Jemima. My parents love my name but I don't. I go by Jamie, it's just easier to say quickly and that's useful when playing sport or telling the barista your name at the coffee shop." Oct. 31, 2016:
