Jewel Names


Jewel Names for girls became popular with the Victorians. Probably, this trend was due to sentiment, societal values; their daughters were as precious to them as jewels, just as beautiful, and not really all that useful.

Names like Ruby, Pearl, Opal, or Esmeralda were briefly quite popular. Other jewel names, like Crystal, Jade, or Amber, did not catch on until later.
