I think Gemma is a sweet name that makes a nice alternative to Emma for a baby in the US.
As canadianne said, Gemma has past its bloom for new babies here in the UK. It reigned supreme in the 80s and hung on through the 90s but has become slightly dated now along with the likes of Nicola and Lisa. The are lots and lots of Gemmas in their 20s here though :)
Funnily enough, Gemma became popular here not long after we had our Emma boom (which was HUGE here in the 70s, 80s, and early 90s) so I can see other people in the US cottoning on to Gemma soon enough.Trends, styles and quirks of British names:
