Creative Ways to Get to Gem/Em
My name is Emily so any names that are too similar, such as Gemma, Emmeline, Emma etc are out. I like the idea of keeping my old nicknames, which were Em(my), and Gem. I'm not into unisex names, or boy names (so long Emmett), and would like your help! So far I've thought of Clementine and Jemima, and I can't see myself using Clementine because of the fruit. Jemima is a possibility because I feel that it has a stronger background. Any more ideas?

You could use initials like Eliza Morgan "EM" or Georgia Maeve "Gem". You could also use an M name and nickname her M (Em.)
There's also Emerald, Ember, Emerson, Temperance, or Boheme (Bo-Em).
For Gem, you could name her Ruby, Pearl, or Opal and she would be your little Gem.
I think you could use either nickname with Imogen.
Good luck!Check out a new baby name magazine called Matilda.

These contain Gem:
Gemella -- means twin
Gemila -- means beautiful
Gemina -- means twin
Shigemi -- means luxuriant beauty (it's interesting, but might be too much for you)
These contain Jem:
Jemsa -- means precious stone
Jemima -- which you've already said and is nice
Akemi -- beautifully bright
Chemarin -- girl in black
Clematia -- climbing plant
Clemence -- merciful
Clemira -- brilliant princess
Dema -- forgetful one
Demetria -- follower of Demeter
Demi -- half; follower of Demeter
Ellema -- dairy farmer
Emani -- belief, faith
Euphemia -- sweetly spoken
Also, names like Imogen can still have Em as a nickname as Im and Em make the same sound.Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^
