- Personal experiences with the name Jazz: | Edit
My name is Jazz. Not Jasmine, Jazz.
My entire life I have been met with people saying "WOW, what an awesome name" or similar. It's an awesome name, and I think my parents did a great job. I have a 'normal' middle name in case I didn't like Jazz.
Only issue with the name is a. convincing people (often producing my license) that Jazz is my real name, and b. spelling, expect jaz, jas, jass,and c. In my experiences I have had a lot of older people try and convince me that my name can't possibly be Jazz, it must definitely be Jasmine.
With my last name as well, I get continually told I should be famous with a name like mine.
Great Name!! Highly Suggest if you want your kids name to be loved!!
