Although I do like Jemma, and the fact that it brings the name close to Jenna, I still prefer Gemma, because Gem is so lovely as a nickname, compared to Jem. To me, the gemstone meaning is a major selling point of Gemma, as opposed to Emma.

Much prefer this over Gemma. Makes me think of Jemma Simmons from Agents of SHIELD. I've always liked Jenna, but Jemma is just as pretty!
