"People often spell my name wrong because it?s spelled ?Jemma? instead of ?Gemma?" Jan. 25, 2020:
"The first time I remember hearing it was on Marvel's Agents of Shield. I fell in love with the name. Couple years later found out I was pregnant with a girl. I asked a handful of people to help me with a name and when I told them Gemma Rose was the first one that came to mind, they couldn't think of better. I wanted to keep her grounded, even if only by name. She will be 6 months old in 2 days and I still love it and yet to meet another." Jan. 12, 2020:
"Its beautiful, smart and alluring. All gemmas are rated 10/10." Mar. 6, 2019:
"As I was raised in an area heavily populated by Italians, it was not until I moved away from my native area that I ever heard anyone pronounce it incorrectly, Gemma being originally an Italian name. I am of English-Welsh descent, and my mother's name is Dierdre (yes, spelled "ie", rather than "ei", as in Irish Gaelic, because her mother was German and spelled it accordingly). My middle name is Catherine, my mother's is Ann (after her mother, Anna), and her sister's is Elizabeth. My English great-grandmother was Lydia, and her Welsh mother was Anne. All very common names in the British Isles." Apr. 26, 2017:
"Named our second daughter Gemma and I love it! I love that I can shorten and call her Gem. I get asked if it's after sons of anarchy which it's not but I can handle that ;)" Jul. 7, 2011:
"My Name is Gemma, I was born in the 80's when the named seemed to be very popular although my lother was convinced it was original at the time until I started school! I new 4 people in my year at school named Gemma & 2 in the year above! Although I have not met many other Gemma's when I've traveled or when I'm socialising but my brother married a Gemma & my younger brother dated a Gemma! I still like my name all things considering because whenever I'm chatting to new people & we introduce ourselves people always comment that Gemma is a really nice name & have even said unusual!!"

"My name is also Gemma Sarah! OMG!!! I hated the name as a child because one horrible little boy by the name of John Delgado made fun of me all the time, calling me Aunt Jemima because I was fat. I can still see his face over 65 years later. Then, when I started working and met more people, most people pronounced my name with a hard G which made my skin crawl. You can imagine my shock when an elevator door opened and there was a woman half my age and her name tag said Gemmma!" Aug. 4, 2020:

"Its funny reading comments that say that the name Gemma is unusual because as the above comment says in the UK its a very common name! My name is Gemma Elyse which I love because the 2nd name is unusual, every other Gemma I know is a Gemma Louise! Although I like my name I also would have chosen something a little more different" Aug. 27, 2010:
"People always think that my name is spelt Jema. It is very annoying but I love this name because it is unique and it distinguishes me from other people. Also other people think that my name is a short from Jemima.
Love Gemma" Aug. 3, 2010:
"In the UK Gemma is a very common name. Not so much now but when I was born in the 80s. I know at least 5 other Gemmas. I like it but would like a more unusual name. Maybe I should move to the states. Can also be spelled Jemma" Mar. 14, 2010:
