- Yes, it's a syrup, but it's a very lovely name, and I only think of the little girl in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang being sung to sleep by Dick Van Dyke. You could call her Jem or Emmy for short.
- my daughter's name. Very unusual, strong, classy and sassy. Means dove in Hebrew. One of Job's daughters. One of Daniel Boone's daughters. Veddy English. Also, the name of a Beatrix Potter character - Jemima Puddleduck. Cute for a small girl. Dignified yet slightly bohemian for a woman.
- well for starters, she is the name of the syrup lady! Jemima is also the name of Inspector Thomas and Charlotte Pitt's daughter in Anne Perry's mystrey series.
Jemima is a biblical name, coming from the Hebrew meaning "dove."
