杰瑪 is the transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the Latin / Spanish name Gemma.
吉瑪 is one transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Gemma.
This one is probably the most common way to write Gemma in Chinese. However, the first syllable sounds a little like "Jee" as in "Jeep."
嘉瑪 is another transliteration to Mandarin Chinese for the name Gemma.
This version is more accurate if you pronounce Gemma with a sound in the first syllable like the words "gym" or "gem."
ジェマ is the name Gemma written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese).
Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.
