    I really dislike Gemma. It feels made up to me ... like two tween girls talking about modifying Jenna to make Gemma, because it's so much more awesome. I know it's an old name ... still feels like...

    I would hesitate before going to a doctor named Lilac. Even if my brain told me her name didn't matter ... it would affect my comfort level.
