We have more or less decided that our baby will be Jessica Charlotte if it's a girl. The only thing that puts me off is that it may be too popular. I read that it was the fourth post popular name in 2011 but I have only come across one baby Jessica recently.
How many do you all know?
And do you think that Jessica works with Charlotte as a middle name?
Thanks everyone!

I wondered if there would be a boom after the Olympics?

I know one adult Jessica and one aged 18 months. Lovely name esp with Charlotte.

None - only Jessica's we know are 10, 19 & 20 no babies at all

Thanks everyone. Think that's helped make my mind up. Lets just hope she looks like a Jessica Charlotte if she is a she! xx

i have known of loads of kids called jessica, but its your baby. Better to call it a popular name that you like than an obscure name that youre not keen on

No babies, youngest is year1 and extremely lovely. smile

I know 2.

There were lots at school with me too so I see it as classic popular rather than faddy popular.

Oh, i think Jessica Charlotte is very pretty, makes a change form the usual Grace or Rose combinations.

Goldalocks Sun 17-Mar-13 08:59:46

I know one aged 8 and know of another locally aged about 3. It is not a name I have heard a lot at toddler groups or out and about either, for babies. I would associate it more with older school age children, so also surprised to see it so far up the stats. Perhaps demographically it is more evenly spread than some other currently popular names which can result in clusters of Avas or (apparently from another recent thread) Beatrices!

Don't know any but it it is a lead contender for if we have a DD2 smile

Whatalotofpiffle Sun 17-Mar-13 06:47:54

2 four year olds, no babies

I know about 4 under 2 and 3 of them are under a year. If you love the name I would go for it anyway. One of my daughters has a really popular name (begins with O, ends in A smile ) She started school last September and is in the only one in the year.

I know an 18 month old and DS(19) had one in his class. Classic name, very nice. Jess is a lovely nn. I like Jessica Charlotte.

I know a 9yo and a 6yo Jessica.

It's a lovely name.

DillyTante Sat 16-Mar-13 23:20:51

None, but I really like it.

WinkyWinkola Sat 16-Mar-13 23:11:50

2 in my dd's class. 1 from my ds1's NCT group.

fluffypillow Sat 16-Mar-13 22:32:21

I have a Jessica, and she is 2.

I haven't heard of any others at the toddler groups I've been to. My DS2 is 10 and he has 2 in his year.

I love Jessica Charlotte, so pretty smile My DD is Jessica Elizabeth. We call her Jess most of the time, or 'messy Jessie!'

goldenlula Sat 16-Mar-13 22:22:23

I think the youngest Jessica I know is 10. 2 others are 18.

2kidsintow Sat 16-Mar-13 22:20:47

Oooo - omit the apostrophe in that first Jessicas.

sjupes Sat 16-Mar-13 22:20:40

Oh and DD has a friend at school called jessica she's 7 or 8 - primary 3.

sjupes Sat 16-Mar-13 22:19:49

I know 1 jessica she'd around 1 year old (not majorly close to her folks) it's a great name i love it smile

2kidsintow Sat 16-Mar-13 22:19:44

Yep - three other Jessica's in my Jessica's class (and 2 more in the parallel class of the same year in school too). And a couple more in her Brownie pack too. And a few either a year older or younger.

She thinks it's funny.

My Jess is known as Jess the mess.

She's in year 3 though, it could be less popular now than it was in 2004.
