I looked up the meaning for my name, Jessica, and in less than ten posts saw two other people named Jessica Catherine! I'm one too and love my name. I got it in the late 70's due the the Alamand Brothers song and love it. I love the fact my fam and close friends call me Jessie, other friends call me Jess, and at work I'm Jessica. Very versitle name.

Correction: original pronounciation is Yes'ca. Meaning mentioned is not correct to my knowledge. Yes'ca is probably the second name of Sara, wife of Avraham. It probably comes from the Aramaic root "too see", and it indicated the abilities of a profit. you can find it in Genesis 11,29 You want a unique name? Use the original name: Yesca
