Most people I meet pronounce my name wrong a few times before they get it right. However, they go on to compliment what a pretty name it is once they figure out how to say it. I go by Jess and Minnie too.
My mother is an avid reader, she always has piles of books around her, she got my name from a Sweet Valley High book when she was in highschool and fell inlove with it, I've read the book and the character is everything I've always aspired to be, strong, brave, beautiful, smart, kind, and bold. I love my name because it is beautiful and unique, but I can get a lot of nicknames from it that are relatively common, usually I go by Jessa or Jessie

My mother always said she saw my name in a baby book once and it said Jessamyn meant "my gift". She thought this was quite appropriate as I was born on Christmas Eve. Can you guess what my middle name is? I was a Christmas gift.
