Tag Archives: names that begin with “j”


Yahoo-news ran an article on the letter “J.”

It wasn’t actually a brought-to-you-by-Sesame-Street-esque article (a little more risque), but having a name that starts with a “J,” I was glad to get some play!

Even though “J” is the fourth-least-frequently-used letter of the alphabet (only Z, Q and X are used less) and less than 1% of words in the English language begin with “J,” J-names are not really all that uncommon.  You probably know people with most of these names:

Jacqueline, Jaycee, Jeanie, Joan Jadyn, Jane, Jackie, Jasmine, Julie, June, Janet, Jeanette, Janell, Janice, Jana, Jamie, Joan, Jazzy, Jae, Jeena, Jennifer, Jenny, Jade, Jessica, Jewel, Jezebel, Joanna, Joelly, Jocelyn, Joleen, Joy, Juanita, Judy, Jovan, Jill, or for boys  there are Jake or Jacob, Jackson, Jason, Jeff, John, Jesus, Jarrett, Jeremy, Jedi (I know a few), Joey, JoeJoe, Jerry, Justice, Joshua, Justin, Julian, and ETC!

Anyway, the Yahoo-news article was a little bold, but suggested “J” might be the sexiest of all letters and I am just saying – maybe that is true.  I make my “J”s a lot like this one, especially if I am feeling particularly swirly!
