I have to bump this, because many people aren't aware of it.

Jemima is a racially loaded name. It has "mammy" associations out the wazoo. Totally, totally unusable.[/b]

That was actually the "baggage" I was referring to in my original post. DH and I were actually quite surprised that no one brought up the racial stereotypes until now.

We would have had no problem with the name if it were just for the syrup, but we didn't want to give our future daughter a name that was so loaded.
