I am named Jesse and I like it alot. Male Jesses often have long hair, and i do too. People often spell i with an "i". and i think It's funny when a girl is named "Jesse" without an "i"

I don't frequently meet othe's with the'same name but do come across many people who don't know the correct way to spell the name Jesse, rather than jessie, which does get annoying at times.. other than that, i like the name Jesse!

I named my son Jesse after both his sister and cousin chose it (not knowing the othe's had picked it, too). There seem to be a lot of hispanic children with that name, but not alot of caucasion children with that name. No one mispronounces it, but they do spell it wrong a lot (usually like a girl, Jessie).

My son was born in 1992 and named after his father, Jesus. I have always called him Jesse or Jess. I absolutely love the name. Shortly after he was born a song titled "Jesse", sung by Carly Simon, became very popular. At that time many assumed that is why we called him Jesse. Had nothing to do with it. I feel the name has always suited my son.

My ex-boyfriend's name is Jesse. He is a very sweet guy and we are both still in love. I love the name Jesse and my name is Jessika. Well, It is just a good name and It is not a girly name. Jessie or Jessi is the girl spelling. Jesse is a total guy's name!

My husband's name is Jesse. People often add an "i" before the "e" which drives him crazy, as that is the feminine spelling of the name...
