James' sister...

My husband and I already have a son named [name]James[/name]. It was so easy to choose [name]James[/name] - we both loved it immediately. Now we are having a daughter and need some help. Our last name is one syllable, pretty common and has some harsh sounds in it.

Help!

I love the name [name]Gemma[/name], but is it too similar to [name]James[/name]?
