The 25th of February is National Jessica Day. Jessica derives from the ancient Hebrew name Iscah, which means ‘vision’ or’sight.’ The name has ancient Hebrew origins and means ‘to behold,’ ‘to see before,’ or, in its most modern form, ‘God beholds.’ Jessica’s other meaning is “gift from God” if the name is derived from the masculine form Jesse, which means “gift from God.” Join us as we honour these exceptional individuals who are rumoured to have the ability to persuade others through their natural gift of the gab. We hope that their cheerful, outgoing, and endearing personality will rub off on us all.
The background of National Jessica Day
Before appearing in a play by William Shakespeare, the name Jessica is not known to have been used. Therefore, despite her Hebrew origins, Jessica could be considered Shakespeare’s creation. Many believe William Shakespeare coined the name when he introduced Jessica in “The Merchant of Venice” as the daughter of the Jewish moneylender Shylock.
The name became popular and was ranked first or second in the United States between 1981 and 1997, before falling out of the top 20 in 2004. It remained in the top five in England and Wales from 2000 to 2008, reaching the top spot in 2005. The name is also spelled Iska, Jeska, Yessica, Jessika, Jess, Jessie, and Jesse. There are several notable Jessicas, including Jessica Simpson, Jessie J., and Jessie James Decker, as well as the actors Jessica Alba, Jessica Lange, Jessica Biel, and Jessica Chastain.
National Jessica Day allows us to recognise and honour those with the name Jessica. Name days provide valuable insight into the evolution of names and frequently serve as inspiration for parents attempting to choose a name for their newborn. Jessica is no exception to the rule that human names work quite well for pets, as she is also an excellent choice. It’s easy to see why Jessie and Jesse are popular choices for female and male dogs. Without a doubt, regardless of how you choose to employ the name, the results are typically positive.
