Jem Cotton is an important reoccurring character in Jacqueline Wilson's Hetty Feather book series.
When I text my BFF on my tablet, we have a messaging group called the J.E.M.S, I will not tell you what it stands for, as it will reveal all of our names (my brother, friend and me). But my brother deleted the app a couple of weeks ago, and the group still has the same name, which we will never change. My brother was the J.
I've always thought this name was feminine because of the 80's cartoon.
This name is truly outrageous!
In the BBC 3 series "In The Flesh", the sister of the main character Kieren is named Jemima but is addressed as Jem.
I always thought it sounded feminine due to the cartoon. I really don't like it on a boy. But on a girl people will immediately think of the cartoon, so it's not exactly much better there.
It's incredible! I can't find a single good nickname derived from James. Jem for a man is so weird and awful. For a girl could it could be okay, but a man named Jem... it's strange in my opinion.
Six girls were given Jem in America in 2014.
My book crush's name is Jem! He is Jem Carstairs from the Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare. It's short for James.
Love this as a nickname for James!
Jem Black, Ward, Belcher and Mace were all bare knuckle fighters form the early 1900's. Jem Finer writes/wrote music for The Pouges. Jem Stansfield presents science for the BBC. It is most definitely a boys name being a shortening of Jeremy or, in earlier times James.
Jem Carstairs is a character in The Infernal Devices series, the prequel trilogy to The Mortal Instruments.
I always found it funny how Jem's real name was Jeremy, as that name was very rarely used when the book was written.
This name looks ugly and too much like the word "gem", which will lead to teasing. Maybe it would work as a nickname for Jeremy, but as a legal name it sounds silly.
OK. First GIRLY! I like this name as a shortened GIRL name! Maybe for Gemma and spell it gem! If this is your name sorry, but gem is a jewel and it isn't very manly :o It can lead to nicknames. Sorry. Spoke the truth.
Come on, Come on and be a Jem Girl! Jem, Jem is my name!
This is the name of the lead character from the 1980's Hasbro series 'Jem and the Holograms'.
In Judith Lennox's novel "Middlemere", Romy Cole's (the leading character) brother is called Jem.
Like this way better than Jim.
Also short for Jeremy.
Jem is *truly* outrageous! (If Jem is your name, then no one else is the same.) (sorry, I can't stop singing the eighties' cartoon anthems)
Jem could also be used as a nickname for Jemima.
One of the children of Anne of Green Gables (+ Gilbert Blythe) is named Jem.
I believe this name can also be used for girls, although it isn't very usual.
There's a famous female singer called Jem.
This can also be a short form of Jeremy, as in Harper Lee's novel To Kill a Mockingbird. The main character's brother is named Jeremy Atticus Finch, but he's called Jem.
