Jemimah, also spelled Jemima, is a girl’s name of Hebrew origin, meaning “dove.” A symbol of peace, freedom and hope, this beautiful bird makes a wonderful namesake for baby! Jemimah appears in the Christian Bible as one of Job’s three daughters, known as the loveliest women in the land. This vintage-sounding name is popular in Britain, where it recently ranked 217th in the baby name charts, but hasn’t ranked in the US since 1893. Why not bring it back for your little dove?
