The meaning of the name (word) PENINNAH in Hebrew is a pearl, and that's why Pearl in the translation of the name in English, and Pearla in Spanish.

A wonderful alternative to Penelope, I think.

Other forms are Penina and Pnina, both much more common than Peninnah. In Hebrew, it's pronounced p'NEE-na, with a very short space between the P and the N.

The name does not mean just 'gem', but it is Hebrew for a pearl.
