i have a 5 month baby boy named Jesse james. My name is Jessica and my Dad is James so he follows on our names beautifuly. I love his name, we do get mixed reactions to his name but we don't care and hope he loves it when he grows up.

2/27/2023 8:31:38 AM

this is my name, and It's weird, but I don't mind it, I only use the full name for formal things.. I'much prefer 'Val' to be used in non-formal settings!

2/23/2023 8:10:52 PM

My son's name is Jesse, and we love it. It's strong and cool at the'same time. I think it is a good name for a young boy, a teenager or a man.

2/18/2023 8:13:30 AM

I am also a Jesse...and as do all of you...I can't stand the ie mispelling. Every job i've ever had my boss mispells my name one way or another...I actually had one boss spell my name Jessy...give me a break.

2/6/2023 11:47:24 PM

1/7/2023 6:07:44 AM

I love the name Jesse and am planning to use it for my son who is due in December. It also means "gift from God" which I like because we almost lost the pregnancy at 25 weeks gestation.

12/25/2022 9:32:44 AM

My name is Jesse and my wife utters it with such loving care that I can't help but love the'sound of my name too.

12/3/2022 1:32:30 PM

My name is Jesse. I used to always tell people that'spelled it Jessie, My name is Jesse and I'm a guy, you spell my name with an E, not I."

12/1/2022 12:27:44 PM

My son's name is Jesse (named after Uncle Jesse on Full House)! I love the name; as do my parents. He is a sweet, strong, stubborn and affectionate boy; who fights for what he wants. I definitely recommend the name.

11/23/2022 2:01:20 PM

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?

11/9/2022 7:59:06 PM

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.

11/9/2022 3:14:00 AM

Jesse is the best name in the whole wide world! I love it even more because it goes with my last name Jones, ive had mostly positive experiences with my name, I do sometimes get my name'spelt 'Jessie' which annoys the hell out of me, other than that, I love my name :-)

11/8/2022 7:32:34 AM

My little boy is called Jesse-jay, I absolutly love it and can't imagine him being called anything else! he's only 4 months old and before he was born people did try talk us out of calling him It'saying It's a girls name I had to correct many people!I think he will love his name when he's older, we did just get all our Xmas cards and his name was spelt wrong on loads of them, jess, jessie,jessy no matter how many times I tell them It's spelt Jesse! That does get annoying!

9/29/2022 9:45:32 AM

i have founds lots of definitions for my name "jesse" and all are good definitons. 1. God exists. 2. God sees. 3. Gift giver 4. Wealthy What's not to like? And yeah, it does sound beautiful. One J. 2 Letter E and S. Cute, 5 letters. very simple. And pretty. Jesse is super nice for a girl. :)

9/23/2022 2:06:44 AM

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"

9/22/2022 6:42:56 AM

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!

9/13/2022 10:52:16 PM

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).

9/13/2022 4:21:22 AM

I love the name Jesse so much. It just sounds cool. I know a nice guy named Jesse. He is one of my friends. If I ever have a son I'll probably name him Jesse. My mum thinks It's a girls name but it is actually the cutest boys name ever. I love the name. It's so modern!!!

My Name is Jesse and my wife is Brandi and we both Hate when'they are both mispelled. I love my name but, but sometimes its not manly enough for me. If I have a son I will keep that in mind, in choosing a name. Its Very annoying to have my name'spelled in the feminine directive

11/13/2021 7:08:42 PM

I named my son Jesse and he loves the name. he's 9 years old and he thinks his name is cool. Jesse told me once I picked a great name for him. Meaning of Jesse is awsome too.

I love this name ..It is just about the coolest name ..The most famous outlaw in the world wss named Jesse , so if you have this name you better live up to It's cool expectation.Just please don't rob any banks or trains lol if my Baby Girl would have been a boy I would have named him Jesse

10/21/2021 10:08:42 PM

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.

10/13/2021 6:26:24 AM

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!

10/3/2021 3:57:54 AM

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...

9/4/2021 11:53:06 AM

My name is Jesse. I was named after my grandfather. My family and friends call me Jess and I usually introduce myself as Jess. Jesse was King David's father's name from the Bible. I haven't met many other men named Jesse and only a few women and it is spelled 'Jessie"

8/2/2021 8:45:00 AM
