    .. is the name Jessica?

    I don't know any but then I don't have any children of school age - is there one in every class do you think? It's in the top 10 though, so i'm presuming there are loads?

    I was really hoping to avoid anything in the top 20 to be honest... but DH and I are seriously struggling with possible girl's names.

    When we were team yellow with out first pregnancy we literally didn't have a girl's name at all - thankfully we had a son. My Husband wants to be team yellow again this time around but i'm so nervous that if it's a girl we'll be totally stuck.

    I like Jessica but not Jess, it reminds me of Postman Pats cat. :lol:

    I know of one little girl called Jessica and shes about 5. I live in scotland and its not a hugely common name here.

    Yes we like Jessie too - but the super common thing really bothers me too.... But then again i'd rather have a daughter with a common name than no name at all :D the rate we are going that's a genuine risk!

    My name's Jessica : )

    In the early 90's it was really popular and there were 3 of us in 1 class! I'm on supply at the moment and get around a lot of different schools and rarely come across girls called Jessica so maybe it's less popular now x

    I'v got a friend and a niece called Jessica both are grown up now and I don't hear a lot of Jessica's anymore either, I agree with fairy princess that it might have been a common name in the 90s!!
    Saying that I called my daughter Emiy and she is the only one in her class (in year 2) and that's sposed to be a common name but that was the only girl name that me and my partner liked lol x

    Jessica is quite popular near us, we opted for Jessie instead but didn't use it in the end as the dog is called Woody lol

    I know a few Jessica's around my age (26) but I don't think I have heard any at all of a younger age.
