||Jessie by Lily
I love Jessie, but I do only like it as a nickname. I'm lucky though because I love just about every Jess- name, all the way from flowery Jessamine, to dated Jessica, down to Jesse on a boy. Jessamyn is even a prominent family name for me.
Do you think Jessie works on its own?
Yep, I do. As a standalone, it's actually never been out of the top 1000. Although, as I said, I do prefer it as a nickname, I think it's well established on its own.
Do you think it's overused (it is a nickname for Jessica after all. Do you think many of them go by Jessie?)
I think many do, but at least as many go by Jess or Jessica and will gut you if you call them Jessie. :) I would never call Jessie uncommon, but I don't think it's overused on its own.
Do you think I should put Jessamine on her birth certificate even though I don't love it?
No way! I don't think anyone should ever put a first name on a birth certificate that they don't love, especially not when it's just to get to a perfectly usable nickname name like Jessie. She could force you into abandoning Jessie altogether by opting for Jessamine in full or a different nickname like Sami or Minnie. If you could grow to love Jessamine or Jessa, it would be the best of both worlds, giving her plenty of options, but if you can't, the risk isn't worth it.
Jessie Virginia is really cute. It's full of retro charm, like something you'd find on a BA in 1910.
