I knew someone named [name]Jewel[/name]. It seemed ok. I don’t know what else to say about it. I liked it ok. It is similar sounding to [name]Julie[/name] or [name]Julia[/name], so it didn’t seem so weird of a name, but because it’s uncommon, it had that going for it without being really strange. I think it is a pretty cool name, I guess, because it’s kind of understated, the way it sounds compared to what it means. As for being “generic,” I’d call that a good thing. You name someone [name]Ruby[/name] or [name]Pearl[/name], I like those names just fine, but you might get unimaginative on their birthday, for example. I did not like the alternative “[name]Bijou[/name]” suggested. That seems ultra-trying too hard. [name]Jewel[/name] blends in but also stands out.
