  1. Ok so there’s some nicknames I’d rather be called and would suit me better but I am a student and evry1 calls me Jess, Jessie or Jessica. How do I get evry1 to change to a new nickname or shall I just stick to Jes (Jess etc.)? Please give me some advice!

  2. My name is Jessica but since my lil bro couldn’t pronounce it, he called me caca.
    At school I wz given Jessy Jay as a nickname which I find really cool.
    I wz also given E-Jay due to my surname, but normally is called J-Jay

  3. Jessica my joined at the hip granddaughter, I always called her Jesikka. When she was old enough she legally changed it to that spelling!

  4. I’ve always enjoyed my name , except growing up for some reason I disliked anyone ( but my family ) calling me Jessie- feeling that was the “male-version” of my name. How silly! I now actually prefer to be called Jessy or Jessy J. A few yrs ago I had a friend nickname me maJESStic due to the fact that I “read cards”. I also came up with maJESSty. All in all I am : MaJESStic MaJESSty Jessy Jaymes.
    Thanks for the article!

    • My name is Jessica as well and when i was in school everyone always called me Jessie that was very irritating to be called Jessie

    • Really! I’ve never liked Jessie because I think of it as really feminine and just go by Jes (pronounced Jess) because i think it sounds more neutral! But it’s interesting that you thought of it as more masculine!
