- Comments and insights on the name Jace: | Edit
I know a great couple who named their son Jace. The father's name is John which means 'the beloved one'. The mother's name is Grace which the name already implies 'a gift or favor'. They took out J from John, then ace from Grace and bond them together. It's really a cool yet very meaningful name for a boy.
Our Jace is 32 this year. He was born in 1984. It was so uncommon that people thought I made it up. several people copi ed me.
My middle baby ( now 16) is named Jace. But unlike the person before me, we came up with his name in 1994. We call him "JACER" but he likes the nickname "JACEYBOY" We get a lot of people that call him Chase or Jay-- Ce, but actually the little girl that's our neighbor is Jaycee. And 3 doors down is another JACE.
- Personal experiences with the name Jace: | Edit
I named my son Jace is 2000 when it was relatively unheard of. I was torn about naming him a "made up name' but it is brisk and breezy as the Bbay Name Wizard would say and it fits him well. People do get it confused with Chase or Jason however. It is a very cool sounding name. Although I normally dont care for made up names and would not name another child this type name, Jace sounds jazzy, and I like short names for boys.
I grew up in a relatively small town and knew 3 boys named Jace growing up. So to me it was not an abnormal name. We chose it for our first son because I liked that it was simple but not really common nor was it crazy or hard to pronounce (or so I thought). We moved to a large city a few hours from our home town, and discovered that many people have never heard of the name before. Without fail, everytime we'd go to the doctor's office or dentist they'd hesitantly pronounce it "Jaycee", and when I'd kindly say, "Jace", they'd respond with something like "Oh, that's different" or "Where did you come up with that name?". Like I said, I grew up with 3 "Jace's", so to me it isn't very different!
