Now there’s a name for ya! — #8

J is one of my favorite letters…  Don’t ask me why, but there are so many J-names that I just love!  Not exactly a good thing considering that my granny has all but forbidden me and my siblings to give our children J-names.  You have to understand that she already has a quite a few nieces, nephews, and grandkids with J-names.  So many times, she would call to one of them and have to go through several J-names before coming up with the correct one. 😛

Anyway, these are my favorites:

GIRL
Julia/Julianna — youthful; daughter
of the sky

Jaimee — she who supplants
Jerika — one who is strong; talented ruler
Jordyn — of the down-flowing river
Jessalyn — the Lord sees all
Jada/Jayden — resembling the jade stone
Jocelyn — one who is cheerful, happy
Jessamyn — resembling the jasmine flower
Jacey — resembling the hyacinth
Jacquelynn — she who supplants
Javanna — woman from Greece

*                    *                    *                    *                    *

BOY
James — he who supplants
Jackson — son of Jack or John (God is gracious)
Justus — one who upholds moral rightness & fairness
Jason — God is my salvation; healer
Julian — one who is youthful
Jozef — God will add
Justin — one who is just & upright
Jace — God is my salvation
Jericho — from the city of the moon
Javonte — a cheerful man
