Jilljill, Acid Rain, and the Rules of Unisex Naming
On to the female Js. I got so depressed with these, I haven't even looked at the boys yet.
This is the name of someone I went to school with. Sounds Oriental.
Or possibly Romulan.
Jack (girl)Why not? I think it makes a really cute name for a girl, especially one with curly hair and misheviously glinting eyes...
... as she loomed over your bedside with a cleaver in her hand, whispering "Why, Mom, why?"
JadeMy favourite color is any shade of green (except avocado) it's short, simple and you can't really come up with any derogatory nicknames for Jade...
I think Dictionary.com might disagree: "JADE- 2: a woman adulterer [syn: adulteress, fornicatress, hussy, loose woman, slut, strumpet, trollop] " Hm.
JaedaProbaby cute and popular.
I mean, maybe. It's likely. It could be, you know.
JaelMy favorite name is Jael Armani (JAY-el ah-reh-MAH-nee) This is a girl name and what i plan to name my baby girl. Jael is hebrew for to ascend and Armani is african for faith.
Jail Armani? Maybe she's an animal-rights activist. An animal rights activist who thinks "African" is a language. Jael, when pronounced properly, is in fact a rather nice name, though. Maybe she could use Yale Armani. That sounds appropriately grasping.
Jaeque(pronounced like "Jake") masculin names for women are strong and sexy, although I don't recommend Bob or Henry!
Then what do you recommend? Perhaps James is all right, but Orlando is not? Is Walter okay? What about Billy? I NEED DIRECTION!
Jana(jAA-na with a soft J) I like it cause it sound so normal but still is very unusual. It's a name that keeps on buzzing in your head.
Take note that something "buzzing in your head" is normal to this poster.
Sounds like a cholesterol medication.
JanuaryMy obsession with naming children after months has lead me to this. It's pretty, and just sounds nice the way it rolls off the tongue. I don't care for the nickname of "Jan", but all in all, the name is perfect. A good name for a bright and cheery person or an optimist.
Nothing says bright cheery optimism like January.
JarrahJAR RAH individual name with a woody kind of twist
With subtle undertones of oak and vanilla, Jarrah's woody kind of twist makes it an ideal accompaniment to steak or lamb.
THE TWO ARE BEATIFUL JEMS, AND THEY COMPLIMENT THEMSELVES LOVELY.
Last I checked, Jasmine was not a "jem." Though neither is "Dymond," if you want to get technical.
JenuffaThere is one name I have not seen there-or anywhere for that matter. It is JENUFFA. It is my eldest daughter's name. I found it in the San Francisco Examiner shortly before she was born, 31 years ago. There was a Chek opera playing in town. And this was its name. I believe, but am not certain, that it is the chek pronunciation of JENNIFER. I pronounce it like the French would. "shin'=uf =fa" or pronouncing Jennifer with a southern drawl. It is a very unusual name. I am sure noone else has the name.
If I'd been this woman, perhaps I would have "Chek"ed up on all these foreign languages she thinks she knows. I am pretty sure the French pronunciation of Jenuffa would be "Elle croit que ça est notre prononciation de Jennifer? Et mon cul, c'est du poulet?"
In actuality, I think this woman was thinking of Janacek's Jenufa, which Wikipedia characterizes as "a grim story of infanticide and redemption." Goody!
I heard of this name in the movie Coyote Ugly, and I really liked it. I thought a one syllable name would compliment it, and after debating over Jersey Sky, or Jersey Rain, I choice Rain
Correct me if I'm wrong... but doesn't Jersey Rain, like, corrode things?
Jilljill(Jill-jill) We thought about naming our daughter Jilljill. It looks kewl written, and both her grandmothers are named Jill. We didn't want one to always think "Oh she's name after the other one so we made it so they would both know that they were both in our hearts and thoughts.
See, for normal people, having two grandmothers named Jill would be a boon because you wouldn't have to name after one or the other. You could just... you know... name after both with one name. Like a sane person.
Joesefa boys name rarely used as a girls. it sounds so beautiful as a girls name. i just thought it was unusual and i have spelt it differently too to make it stand out even more.
As if a girl named Joseph wouldn't stand out enough.
Jonquilsounds like a native american name, it reminds me of something peaceful
Perhaps a flower? Or perhaps the word "tranquil?"
This is one I've liked since I was a little girl. I like the ambigender quality of Jordyn and Grace is a family name and a middle name that makes Jordyn unmistakably female.
I'm not sure I'd go to all the trouble of making something "ambigender" if I were going to go back and make it "unmistakably female." Besides, "ambigendering" something sounds like it would at least require some form of bioengineering.
JoshlynnI named my daughter JOSHLYNN (Josh+lynn) because I didn't like the spelling of Jocelyn. Add my daughter's name to list and see how everyone likes it. It is one of a kind in that spelling.
Joshlynn: it's Jocelyn, sloshed.
Judithbecause ladylike ladies often have it.
Whatever you say.
Juliato call her Jews for short. Tall, strong woman, classic.
Don't tell the Germans. Also, avoid kids named Aryan Justice.
I love the summertime, and this name makes me think of school getting out, crickets chirping and getting kissed for the first time.
I prefer June Popsicle or June Roman Candle, myself. Or maybe June Sweaty-Backseat-of-a-Car.
Jura (joo-ruh) Flame:
The first name is the name of an island in my homeland of Scotland that is slightly less common than Iona or Skye. I just thought that the middle name complimented it nicely!
