  1. Gemma Lucinda.

    My daughter! I almost can’t believe I have a little girl of my own. ? I’ve got two boys, and we’ve got a lot of boys on both sides of the family so this little girl was a surprise.

    My husband and I first heard the name, Gemma, from the show Sons of Anarchy. Gemma is the matriarch and mom of the main character. She isn’t someone I would necessarily want my daughter to emulate but she didn’t ruin the name for either of us.

    Lucinda comes from the American rock, folk and country music singer, songwriter and musician, Lucinda Williams. My husband introduced me to her music not long after we started dating and we still are enjoying her music together.

  2. We names our daughter Gemma after Saint Gemma Galgani. I’ve always been captivated by her beauty, ardent love of God and willingness to do anything for the Lord. I hope my daughter learns these virtues from her too.

    Her middle name is Caeli which is Latin for Heaven. So Gemma Caeli means “Gem of heaven”.

    • I’ve not heard of this saint. I am going to go look her up.

  3. The name Gemma was chosen due to the tv show Sons of Anarchy. Both my husband and I liked the character and her name.

    • Same here!

  4. What the name Gemma means?
    Gemma is a name of Latin origin, meaning “gem” or “gemstone”.

    Its the most precious Gem. ?
