Too outdated?
Baby girl is due in 11 days. We love the name Jess so she will mainly be known as Jess with Jessica on the birth certificate. I am worried it's very 80s/90s though!

It's classic and beautiful, don't worry, be happy ! 😄

I knew about 4 Jessica's born in the last couple of years.

I don't like it personally but if you do who cares?!

starzzzz Fri 14-Apr-17 17:17:12

Love it.

If DS (6 weeks) had been a girl he would have been Jessica

CMamaof4 Fri 14-Apr-17 17:18:00

Adore it, beautiful name.

I know of several baby Jessicas - not too dated at all! Jess is great.

Would you consider something like Jessamine or Jessamy on the BC instead if you don't love Jessica?

Those are beautiful suggestions. Will talk to OH. I like Jessa but I think people will harden the ss and it will sound more like Jezza.

Go for Jessica. It's a name that won't date and is always quite popular.
Jess is nice too.

Love the name Jessica and nn Jess/Jessie are both lovely too :-)

YouWhatMate Fri 14-Apr-17 18:09:14

It's still a top 10 name, so not dated at all

Crochetty Fri 14-Apr-17 21:09:22

Know 4 Jessica's who are 13/14 so def a 21st century name!

It's outdated to me, but it doesn't trend in the charts here in Australia, so it seems to have been left in the 90s.

I like Jessie, and prefer Jessa to Jessica. I don't like the "sick" sound in Jessica.

JustSpeakSense Fri 14-Apr-17 21:26:29

Lots of Jessica's about, it's a very current and popular name.

She could choose to be called jess, Jessie or Jessica in the future.

I really love it, but it is pretty common.

My Jessica is 8 and it was in the Top 20, or maybe even 10, names the year she was born I think, but she has always been the only one in her class.
Obviously I love the name! She's a full Jessica, but quite likes Jess.

Sophronia Fri 14-Apr-17 23:34:03

I prefer Jessamine.

DramaAlpaca Sat 15-Apr-17 00:08:50

I love it, very pretty name.

Also like Jessamine as suggested above.

emilybrontescorset Sat 15-Apr-17 11:15:15

Love it.

Rockaby Sat 15-Apr-17 12:31:52

Lovely! I think it's fairly timeless. I have definitely heard of it being used recently, so don't think it's 80s / 90s.

Aquamarine1029 Sat 15-Apr-17 12:54:34

I love the name Jessica. Great choice!

manicinsomniac Sat 15-Apr-17 20:01:06

It's not dated, it's top 10.

Having said that, I have a 9 year old Jessica and we don't meet that many others of any age. Always some but never ridiculous numbers.

Ecureuil Sat 15-Apr-17 20:03:37

I'm a Jessica and really like my name! I know a few baby/toddler Jessica's too.

laurzj82 Sat 15-Apr-17 20:09:07

Love it. We nearly called DD Jessica
