Origin of the name Judith:
Cognate of the Hebrew Jehudith and Yehudit, which are feminine forms of Jehuda and Yehudhah. These names, Anglicized as Judah, mean "he will be praised." Because Judah was also the name of a kingdom in ancient Palestine, the name can also mean "from Judah."

My mom's name was Judith and she disliked always being one of many so she started going by the simple 'J'. People were constantly asking what the J stood for so she started spelling it out as Jaye. My husband and I gave it as a middle name to our daughter, Maya Jaye.
