I strongly associate [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] with the pancake mix, I don’t know if it’s popular where you live but that’s all I can see. I don’t even see it as a name but as a brand, it’d have the same effect as meeting someone named [name_m]Oreo[/name_m].

Holly I love though, it’s a cute nickname for [name_u]Holland[/name_u] (one of my favourites) but I think it also works on its own.


I like [name_u]Holly[/name_u]! [name_u]Holly[/name_u] [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] has a nice flow, but personally I don’t like the name [name_f]Jemima[/name_f], I think of the syrup brand which has some problematic connotations.

I like [name_u]Holly[/name_u]. :blush: Not a big fan of [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] for the same reasons others have said. It depends on where you live though. I think it’s more popular in the UK.

I think [name_u]Holly[/name_u] is sweet, although a little dated to me. [name_u]Love[/name_u] [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] & [name_u]Holly[/name_u] [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] is so cute!

I love [name_u]Holly[/name_u] and [name_u]Holly[/name_u] [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] is adorable. If you want to distance the name from the [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] brand, you could use [name_u]Holly[/name_u] [name_f]Gemima[/name_f], [name_u]Holly[/name_u] Jemina or [name_u]Holly[/name_u] [name_f]Gemina[/name_f].

No idea about pancakes I’m in [name_f]England[/name_f] :joy:


Holly [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] is gorgeous

Holly [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] is a sweet name

[name_m]Hi[/name_m] there.

I think it’s so cute. [name_u]Holly[/name_u] is a friendly, cheerful, simple, sweet, feminine, & has lovely botanical imagery. Are you in the U.S.? I wouldn’t use [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] if so. With this culture we’re living in, I’d assume people would find it racist due to the association with the Aunt Jemima pancake brand. I know that [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] is more common in the U.K. I think that [name_u]Holly[/name_u] [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] sounds adorable.

[name_f]Hope[/name_f] this helps. :slight_smile:

In the states, [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] really doesn’t work! [name_m]Just[/name_m] like in the UK some names popular here dont work. That’s a really regional one so you’ll get a lot of mixed feedback.

I like [name_u]Holly[/name_u] and dont see why its not ready for a reboot. Its like [name_f]Ivy[/name_f] or [name_f]Rose[/name_f] to me really. A nature name that should always be pretty and lively and therefore rather timeless but I have noticed its gone out of style like [name_f]Heather[/name_f].

I think its pretty though especially for a baby due near [name_u]Christmas[/name_u]. I like it! I cant comment on [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] though - I’m in the states so its really not my style. [name_u]Holly[/name_u] [name_f]Janine[/name_f] is really pretty though!!

I actually like [name_u]Holly[/name_u] for its Christmasey vibe. I think [name_u]Hollis[/name_u] would update it a bit, though.
[name_f]Jemima[/name_f] has a cool sound and I think people need to get past the pancake mix association.

I like [name_u]Holly[/name_u] as a full name, rather than as a nickname for something else

I used [name_f]Jemima[/name_f] as a nickname for the female genitalia as a child. [name_u]Holly[/name_u] was an annoying upstairs neighbor I had who lived with her parents, boyfriend and kids in the same apartment and I first learned many a curse word when I was small. Not too keen on the names themselves either. I don’t know, your choice, the bad experiences just warned me away from them. :confused:
