Jada is the name of Neal Morse's daughter. Neal Morse is a musician (Christian and prog). When Jada was a small baby the doctors found a hole in her heart. Neal's wife, not nearly as devout as Neal, took Jada to the church and asked God to help her, and Jada's heart healed and she's doing great today.

When I first saw this name, I didn't like it. But the more I think about it, the higher it climbs on my favorite name list now.

Such a beautiful sounding name. I like it much better than Jade.

I think this is a terribly cheap and tacky name to give a girl, mainly because many years ago "jade" was a term used for a cheap, tacky, and loose woman. True, many people may not realize this, but I think there are enough literate people out there who do. The only woman I've ever known to name her daughter this happened to be cheap, tacky, and loose herself, so maybe that has colored my perceptions!

Jada is a beautiful name. Jade is a beautiful stone. Not to be referred to a cheap women. I never heard that before nor does it make me view the name any different. This is such a beautiful name. I love it. I picture it on a classy beautiful women or adorable little girl. A sophisticated woman like Jada Pinket Smith. She definitely is not cheap. It is a beautiful and lovely name. I may possibly use this name on a future daughter.

Nope. Cheap and tacky.

It's so tacky.

Well, with your hand on your heart: do you see highly educated, economically successful, intelligent people name their daughter Jada? Of course not. This is a lower middle class name at best. I'd hate to be a woman named Jada, as the name isn't very mature either.

This name is simply beautiful!

Wow! Surprised to see so many people calling this name "tacky" and "lower middle class"! Maybe it's because I'm not part of the generation who used the term "jade", but though I happen to prefer Jade to Jada, Jada is still a nice name. The first time I encountered a woman named Jada was my second semester at college--just a few months ago, actually. She was a senior (graduated now), and she was a brilliant writer and visual artist (ceramics being her specialty, I believe). Very talented, smart, and sophisticated--but humble too, not arrogant or pretentious. Thanks to her, the image I have in my head of "Jada" is an intelligent, charismatic, creative, and precise woman. And also, thanks to the Jada I knew, I can only see this name on blonde girls/women now.

Belgian tennis champion Kim Clijsters named her daughter (b. 2008) Jada Elle.

Though I am sure many parents who have chosen Jada think of it as a variation on "Jade", its origin is different. Jada Pinkett Smith was named after soap opera star Jada Rowland, and Ms. Rowland was named by her jazz fan father after the song "Ja-Da" with its line "Ja-Da Ja-Da Jing Jing Jing". Ms. Rowland therefore rhymed her name with "Prada". However, she wasn't quite famous enough to have radio or TV announcers who knew how her name was pronounced mention her often, and most of her fans, including Ms. Pinkett Smith's mother, assumed Jada rhymed with "Ada" when they saw it on the credits of "The Secret Storm", the show which made Ms. Rowland famous. So the name goes back to jazz nonsense syllables.

It looks as though it would be pronounced JAH-da, like the Italian equivalent of jade, Giada. That doesn't mean it should be spelled jayda or jaida or something crazy though. That just makes a cheap and tacky name even cheaper and tackier. This is basically the female version of Jayden. Enough said.

Okay so my name is Jada and I wouldn't want to change it for the world, it's not tacky or cheap or loose, and my best friend's name is Jada and we're both confident, funny, smart, active and creative girls.

Jada is not a tacky name or cheap. My name is Jada. How would you like it if your name was Jada and people were calling you tacky? Many people named Jada are all different. Some are girls some are boys. Out of all the Jada's I met they are all very creative.

My name is Jada and I'm trilingual, on my way to college, I've written a novel about the concepts and struggles of morality, and I'm also a fairly talented musician. I don't appreciate people assuming that my name is lower-middle class at best. While it is not a traditional name, I wouldn't call it a trashy name. I've never really liked it, but I refuse to stand by and watch it be ridiculed. It could be worse. I could've been called Dixie Rose (I really do appreciate my mother for saving me from my father on that one).

Wow, so many judgments of the people behind the name, how do you know what kind of person Jada is until you meet her/him and get to know them? Everyone has a bad name association, but that doesn't mean everyone with that name is the same. There is probably someone out there with a bad association of your name, do you want to be judged because of it? I like the name because it has all the initials of my 4 immediate family members. It's a personal reason, but not judgmental.

My name is Jada. I think I'm a confident young lady. I plan to be an actress. Looking through these didn't change the way I see myself. I know that I am not tacky. I love my name and I wouldn't change it for all of the money in the world. And that is coming from someone who is younger than 15. All of the Jada's are beautiful.
