It is my name and is very often mispelled like the feminin version. Jessie. Thats about it. Other than that I like my name and think its cool!

12/24/2023 02:20:22

We named our Son Jett and love the name. He is also VERY strong, and a BIG boy, and we were both smaller babies. He is 13 weeks and already over 17lbs! He was lifting his head at 5days, just a tough tough little guy. As far as the name goes, we never anticipated people not "getting" the name. People will ask his name and we will say Jett, and they will respond most of the time with a question because they are unsure of what they heard, so they will question with "Jeff"❤️ or "Jed"❤️ So we have to say "Jett with 2 T's" to make it easier on people.

12/22/2023 16:50:10

Highly recommended name :D

I named my 5month old baby Jesse and everyone loves it! I have only met two other people named Jesse since having him and asked both of them if they liked their name, one said he loved it and the other'said he completely hated it, guess I will need to find another to break the tie...

07/20/2023 14:44:00

It's my name, I think it has that middle ground of not too common not too different. And yeah I used to get 'Isn't that a girls' name in middle school, but if anything that toughened me up to not let people give me a hard time. I recommend :)

I know a ton of people in the'south that like to spell my name Jessie. It drives me nuts, but I have fun asking them to point out famous males named Jesse that have an I in their name. They can't find one. I think my name is awesome, and i've got to give props to my mom for naming me as such! We rule!

06/19/2023 09:54:16

I'married a man with the first and middle names Jesse Herbert. His family called him Herbert to distinguish him from his father (because he was a junior). But among his friends as an adult, he preferred Jesse or Jess. When he'd meet someone for the first time, he'd say I'm Jesse, one of the James brothe's! I called him Herb because that is how he introduced himself to me when we first met. Many confusions over the names during our 45 years of marriage.

05/05/2023 15:09:10

03/27/2023 08:39:04

I, too, am named Jesse. Lately I have been attempting to use Jess as I introduce myself, but it never'seems to catch on. I love my name, though I think Jess sounds stronger than Jesse, especially now that I am a man.

03/22/2023 04:20:10

I named my son Jesse 15 years ago because I liked the name. He was a miracle child for me after having been'told I would not conceive a child 9 years earlier. The name means, "The Lord exists". Everyday I see a powerful faith in this boy that is so amazing. I know the Lord exists in him. He is destined for great things.

03/10/2023 20:46:58

Well the only reason I found this page was because I'm writing a story and I was looking for a good name for a mysterious, kick-ass female character. I thought of Gabriel, but wasn't sure if would work for a female. Glad to see It's already in use. Anyone that thinks It's too masculine, is just too simple-minded and rigid. Evolve will ya❤️

11/09/2022 19:59:06

My son is named Jesse. I really like it and he'seems to as well. He does say that he is worried about how it will suit him when he is older. He thinks it does not sound proffesional for an adult.

09/13/2022 22:52:16

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).
