    Where’s the option for “Love them both!”?

    I love old-fashioned names. I was my BIL’s only supporter on the “Florence” bandwagon for my niece. (After his grandma.) But they ended up going with one of those modern made-up names instead. Boo. πŸ™

    @Mrs. DG:  πŸ˜‰

    @miss-spunkin:  Well, since my baby girl is Adelaide (aka Addie), I guess that seals my vote.  πŸ™‚  But really, I like Gemma quite a bit, too.  i think either name is beautiful.

    My co-worker had an Adelaide last spring!  I found it to be quite a big name on a little baby, but since you’re only a baby for such a small fraction of your life, it’s totally fine.  They call her Addy at times, but most people call her Adelaide.

    I think it’s so feminine and beautiful.

    Gemma is cute, but it seems more like a younger person’s name.  There are a ton of Emmas around (4 my son’s  preschool class of 20 kids) and I would avoid it for that reason.

    I voted for Adelaide, but Gemma is nice too.  It reminds me too much of the mom on “Sons of Anarchy” though, lol.

    I really love both an equal amount! At first I was leaning toward Adelaide but I love Gemma more and more every second lol. Hard choice!

    I like Adelaide. Gemma sounds like a nickname to me.

    Also, this might be silly, but how is Gemma pronounced? I’m pretty sure it is jem-a (with a soft g) but I might also pronounce it like geh-ma with (with a hard g).

    @miss-spunkin:That’s what I was thinking lol….hopefully you have a boy so it’s a more clear cut choice! I have TONS of girl names that I love equally so, even though I’d like to have a girl first, choosing a boy name would be so much easier (there aren’t as many of those that I like haha).
