Jesse is lovely.

Blue is odd

blue, as in the colour?

Blue may attract the nickname 'Poo' and Jesse... Do I need to go on? Your child may be lovely but others can be merciless. Sorry, neither...

To me Blue is a colour not a name and Jesse is too feminine sounding for a boy so neither, sorry.

Jesse is a lovely name and most people don't think of it as girly now because of a spate of American actors called Jesse...

I've known two boys called blue. I like both but prefer Blue slightly

Both too feminine sounding for me. I know Jesse is a.boy's name but because Jess and Jessica are so popular at the moment it is thought of as more girly. I have also only heard Blue as a girl's name. Although have come across Blu without the e for a boy.

Jesse sounds so girly to my ears, perhaps because I know a Jessica nicknamed Jessy.

Blue actually sounds quite masculine and seems to be not uncommon:
Blue Adams (born 1979), American football player
Adele Laurie Blue Adkins (born 1988) or simply Adele, English singer-songwriter and musician
Blue Balliett (born 1955), American author
Blue Barron (1913–2005), American orchestra leader
Blue Dixon (c. 1885–c. 1941), Australian rugby union player
Blue Edwards (born 1965), American basketball player
Sandra "Blue" Good (born 1944), associate of American criminal Charles Manson
Blue Howell (fl. 1930s), American football player and coach
Blue Mitchell (1930–1979), American trumpeter

They are both totally dire. Please don't. Sounds like a pet dog in an old Western.

Jesse. Though it is potentially fraught with problems.

Blue is ridiculously try-hard. Reserve it for a middle name if you really must.

MerylStrop Thu 13-Feb-14 13:13:45

A friend has a daughter with middle name Blue (she's 9 or 10). It works.

Jesse makes me think of a long-haired, free-spirited American boy. But I don't live in America, and here it would be "ya big Jessie".
Blue would mean the daddy was a Rangers fan.

iseenodust Thu 13-Feb-14 13:17:17

Well big Jessie but maybe Jesse James.
Blue? Just no.

Starballbunny Thu 13-Feb-14 13:23:25

Dakota Blue Richards, who played Lyra in The golden Compass and DD2's two DFs who are Jess/Jessie/Jessica

MsJJones Thu 13-Feb-14 22:50:36

Like Blue, dislike Jesse.

BeQuicksieorBeDead Thu 13-Feb-14 22:53:59

Isn't Jesse supposed to be really popular this year because of Breaking Bad? We thought about Jesse, and Brodie but thought they might both be popular due to tv!

bLooming2 Thu 13-Feb-14 23:32:17

Love both also no a Jesse and a blew and they never had issue with it being a girls name I only no boys with this name so to me naming a girl these would be weird hope you go with what you like op x grin
