John has been teasing (I hope) Rachel that if they have a boy, his name should be Tiberious. As in "James T.(iberious) Kirk." Yep, John's a Trekkie. So I teasingly (she hopes) suggested that Rachel tell John if they have a girl, her name should be Tourmalina. Ruby and Pearl are popular again, so why not go with another gem? I thought I was being original. Then I found this -
The origin of the baby name Tourmalina is Sri Lankan with the meaning being 'the tourmaline gem'. Variations include Tourmalyn, Tourmaalyna, Tourmalyne, and Tourmaline.
I guess there really is nothing new under the sun.
