i've met quite a few Jeremy's and they all are very emotional and touchy. I suggest that if you don't want to have to tip-toe around your child, Jeremy Isn't the name for you. However, I think It'sounds pretty to say.

I think the name Jeremy is a very strong name and would be great for both a little boy and a grown man. I know a guy named Jeremy who is very outgoing, but also has a very sweet side to him. I always have pictured someone named Jeremy with dark brown hair and bright blue eyes. It's a very handsome name, and i hope to name one of my children Jeremy someday.
