Since S/O has limited the number of J names I can use (he already has a J name and doesn’t want to start an unintentional theme or make it look like we’re going for the Dugg@r family lineup), I’m trying to determine which of the three J names I like for girls are the best bet for me. This is name one of three!
I currently only have 2 girls names that are definite on my list - Stephanie and Elizabeth. Both are S/O approved, somewhat classic, with 80s teen movie-esque vibes, and are still relatively well used, with little room for misspellings and mispronunciations.
One name I’ve been considering, as it’s one of S/O’s top choices, is Jessica. Jessica feels slightly different from Elizabeth, but I feel like Stephanie bridges the gap between them?
Jessica also reminds me of Sweet Valley High, which I used to love reading as a kid - the books featured twins named Jessica and Elizabeth, and the series began in 1983, which would cover my 80s teen vibe, even if it’s a somewhat obscure connection.
I’m not a fan of the nn Jessie, and I could live with Jess if we were to shorten it, although I much prefer the full Jessica.
What are your thoughts on Jessica? Is it an issue if I don’t like Jessie as a nn? Does Jessica fit well with Stephanie and Elizabeth?
