    Opal only seems

    Jade is a pretty name but I generally associate it with being a little trashy just because of everyone I've ever met named Jade.
    tacky to me because of the soap opera character. She was something else!

    I love Opal, but I've never seen All My Children. I think Opal is my favourite of the gem names. I also like Pearl, Ruby, and Emerald. Beryl has grown on me lately, though I know several Beryls and they are all 70+ years old. :-)

    Personally, the only jewel name I really like is Opal (although I don't actively dislike any of them except perhaps Ruby and Pearl.) I don't have the soap opera association, I just think of the character in Because of Winn Dixie.

    Other than Coral, my favourite mineral/gem names would be Olivine, Lazuli, Violane & Tashmarine. And Helmi, which is Finnish for pearl.

    My middle name is Jade.. I appreciate that it's different and I'm pretty sure that I'm not trashy, lol... Having said that, I probably wouldn't use it in the first name spot..

    No kids (yet), not even trying... but, I can't help but dream of beautiful (and ever-changing) names for my future children!
