This is a pretty, simple, sweet name.

The name can also be spelt JAEDE.

Jade is a very hard name, and therefore I don't like it.

I think Jade is a beautiful name, simple but pretty! When I am a mom I want to have a girl named Jade!
-- Miamaya  3/2/2006
If you look at the stats, you will see that Jade has dropped suddenly out of use in the UK in the past couple of years. This is certainly due to the ghastly non-celeb Jade Goody.

Jade n.2. "A woman regarded as disreputable or shrewish."
^ Another, not-so-great meaning of "jade".

Jade is a rebellious name. It comes from jaded.

Jade is a very simple cute name. Jade is a good middle name.

Jade will always remind me of a vicious, spoiled little girl.

Jade is a pretty name, I always think of Jade as a sweet little girl. I'd like to use Jade as a name someday.

Jade Jagger is a famous bearer.

I LOVE THIS NAME. :) I think it is so beautiful & pure. Green gemstone is a great background symbol for a name! I'd love to call someone Jade. Or maybe even Jayde.
-- jayde  7/22/2006
LOVE THIS NAME. It's the middle name of one of my best friends and she uses it almost as much as her first name (Allison). Plus it's the name of her bouncy polka dot loving main story character!

Jade is the name of Shalom Harlow's character in "Head Over Heels".
-- audreyhubley  8/28/2006
My middle name is Jade. It's okay, but I would like it better if it wasn't so common and if it wasn't a stereotypical goth name.
-- frozen_frogurt  9/2/2006
This is a name that should NOT have a creative spelling. My daughter's cousin's middle name is spelled Jayd. Horrible! The name is beautiful if spelled right.
-- Paiges mommy  9/10/2006
Jade is a very pretty, simple, elegant name. I have known a couple and they are very sweet, pretty little girls.
-- Anonymous User  9/12/2006
I really like this name! I like better the Spanish pronunciation, which would be Ha-de, I think. Also, the main character of a Brazilian soap opera was named Jade.
-- Jeidy_mn  10/3/2006
I know a girl named this. She spells it JAIDE, though.
-- xKatiex  10/12/2006
This has always had a kind of exotic link to it. It makes me think of a treasure owned by a king in India. Simple yet strong, I definitely will keep this name in mind when my first daughter comes around.
-- ella_16  11/4/2006
My name is Jade. I would like to say that it isn't common where I live. I know one person here named 'Jade' other than me. I have never heard any stereotypes for the name but everyone seems to like my name and a lot of people--mostly adults, or really little kids--seem to like me. I would like to say that the name is a very nice name that may or may not have origins in the word 'jaded' or the other usage of 'jade', but is most definitely from the jade stone, which was believed to cure colic, as well as other diseases.
-- Mystery_Masterman  11/30/2006
This name should be the name of a brave, pretty, daring yet loving, and true-spirited girl.
-- jmd27  12/11/2006
Later on in the Starwars Saga, I mean much later after episode six, if you read the books, Luke Skywalker marries a woman by the name of Mara Jade. I love that combo!
-- Anonymous User  1/2/2007
My name is Jayde, although it's not spelt Jade, it's spelt JAYDE, I don't know anyone who spells their name this way, so yeah, I like it because it makes me unique!
-- XxBabyBlondexX  1/16/2007
Jade is one of the main characters in the book "The Prophesy of the Stones" written by Flavia Bujor, when she was thirteen years old. It's a terrific book for someone of her age; beautifully written. Jade has got to be one of my favourite books, aside from Opal. She has a very strong personality, and developed deeply throughout the story. This is definitely a book that I'd recommend to everyone.
-- hereiamagainxx6  1/30/2007
I think Jade is a really cool name, and it's just fine the way it is. Don't bother with Jayde, Jaide, or anything.
-- 7up  2/7/2007
I think this name is a little harsh for a girl, and due to some people I've met, it makes me think of an obnoxious, somewhat low class person when used for a girl. (I mean no offense to anyone). However, this is one of my favorite names for a boy.
-- Anonymous User  2/19/2007
Even though many of the Jades I know have rubbed me the wrong way - it still doesn't turn me off from the name. It's very pretty! I really like it a lot.
-- Jasmine  2/24/2007
I love the name Jade! It's one of my best friend's names. Her mother named her Jade because of a Jade-stone ring given to her by her father. It's a really sweet story when told properly. And I have to add to amber_monkey that Jade is not a rebellious name at all. It does not come from the word jaded which means bored.
-- writing the world  2/27/2007
I wouldn't use this name for a daughter because, as mentioned, it can mean "loose woman"/"prostitute", also "tired, worn-out horse"! Try Amber instead.
-- Anonymous User  3/6/2007
I don't really like it, I think it's kind of tacky. Sorry.
-- Anonymous User  3/12/2007
I personally dislike the alternate spelling of Jayde or Jaide. I mean seriously! Anyhow, the only good thing about this name is probably the stone, or the colour, or the prettier alternative Jada.
-- bobcat_explorer  4/1/2007
I've always loved using the names for jewels as names for people (mainly girls though).
-- puppydoglover  4/4/2007
A character from Tales of the Abyss, though it's used for a male character.
-- princesskisa  4/17/2007
Even though this site lists the name Jade as feminine, I have heard it used a few times as a male's name. I think it works fine as a male's name; it is as similar in sound to Jake as it is to Jane.
-- sagenyah  5/11/2007
This name is also used in France. It is pronounced j-AD.

The main character's name in the novel The Nature of Jade by Deb Caletti is Jade. It's a wonderful book about a girl who suffers from anxiety, and is about to graduate high school. Anything by Deb Caletti, I would recommend. She's a fantastic author, and I find that both teenagers and adults enjoy her literature.
-- dreadfulxsorry  7/20/2007
I know one Finnish girl named this. She pronounces her name "Yade".
-- ToveTer  8/17/2007
Jade from Mortal Kombat is a bearer of this name.
-- aquaspirit96  9/11/2007
A very cheap and common name - awful.
-- Anonymous User  11/3/2007
Very trailer trash. And it's being used as a filler middle name for everything now.
-- arrowhead909  11/13/2007
I really like the name. I live in Asia so I don't know what is the general impression of this name in the States right now, but I think it's easy to remember and pretty.
-- Anonymous User  12/9/2007
I love this name. Really pretty and I love the way it sounds. I personally believe that the name should be more fit for a girl, then a boy. But too bad people like Jade Goody exist. She ruins everything.
-- nadiaxox  2/12/2008
My name is Jade and I've always loved it. I've never met anyone who got a bad impression of me because of my name. My full name is actually Jade-Marie but I just go by Jade. My parents are French and the name was very popular in France in the early 80s when I was born. I've only met two other Jades in my life and I've liked them both. Although I wouldn't change the spelling of the name since it's already a different name and it would be very frustrating to have an unusual name and have it spelt weird. I think it's a great name to have, because it always gives you a conversation starter and it makes you seem more interesting before they even get to know you. :)

Also, my oldest daughter is four and she is obsessed with the Bratz and her favorite is named Jade like her mommy! So I suspect the name will become more popular in the US soon!
-- rujaded  2/23/2008
My favorite stone is Jade so when I was pregnant with my daughter I wanted to use it in some fashion.
-- HeatherCarpenter  3/10/2008
It's not absolutely terrible, but it doesn't sound particularly mature or sophisticated. It's kind of dull, too.
-- slight night shiver  4/24/2008
I have a male cousin named Jade, and he isn't the first man I've know with this name. Is this also used as a boy's name? Where did the male usage originate?
-- isabelajane  5/29/2008
Please! This is an old-fashioned synonym for "whore". One of the Bratz (or shall I say Slutz) dolls is fittingly named Jade. When a girl named Jade does research on her name, she won't be flattered.
-- bananarama  7/9/2008
Jade Villalon is the singer of Sweetbox who sang Final Fantasy 10-2. She's now Jade Valerie. She's gorgeous and my first girl crush.
-- pandabob  8/25/2008
My name is Jade. I personally think my name is a bit boring for my personality. I thinks it's a child's name. Grandma Jade doesn't really have a ring to it. But all these people saying it's a whore's name, seriously are you trying to tell me every prostitute is named Jade? I mean come on that's just being stereotypical.
-- evans14  9/16/2008
Here are some definitions of the word "jade" from Webster's 1913 dictionary:
1. A mean or tired horse; a worthless nag. Chaucer.
Tired as a jade in overloaden cart. Sir P. Sidney.
2. A disreputable or vicious woman; a wench; a quean; also, sometimes, a worthless man. Shak.
She shines the first of battered jades. Swift. Also, some definitions of "quean," since now most people probably don't know: [1913] 2. A low woman; a wench; a slut. The dread of every scolding quean. Gay; [1828] A worthless woman; a slut; a strumpet.
That's pretty repulsive, and despite there being a gemstone Jade, and given names made from gemstone names, these other meanings degrade any positive connotations of the name 'Jade' and make it entirely unsuitable for any respectable girl or woman.
-- greta-elisif  9/17/2008
Jade is one of the ugliest names I've ever heard. I'm sorry to all you Jades out there, as Jades are usually nice people, the name just doesn't appeal to me.
-- yohevid  9/28/2008
An utterly white trash, harsh sounding name. Absolutely hate the name, it's ugly in every sense of the word.
-- spandaa  10/2/2008
I love this. I think it is awesome as a boys name. Jade Puget is the guitarist of AFI and he is also in Blaqk Audio. He is a very awesome musician. I wanna name my son Jade.
-- Larissa19  1/21/2009
I'm surprised so many people don't like this name. I don't think of a whore when I hear this name at all; I'm not prone to think of whores, so maybe it's just a personal thing. I think of the beautiful jade stone when I hear it and think it sounds sweet and a bit exotic. I've never met a single Jade, but I'm pretty sure their parents didn't name them with the intention of them becoming whores. I've met slutty women and men with lovely Biblical names, so I don't really think the name matters all that much. Bratz dolls, however, are revolting no matter what they're named.

There was the Big Brother star Jade Goody, who sadly died of cancer.
-- Anonymous User  3/23/2009
I personally think Jade is a *very* pretty name! I know 2 girls with this name, one of them has it in their middle name though. I love that it isn't some modern goofy made up name like "Kade" or whatever, and that it's actually from the gemstone.
-- Anonymous User  4/29/2009
It sounds a little bratty, in my opinion. No offense to people named Jade.

Jade is Amy Winehouse's middle name.
-- Just Jonquil  7/10/2009
People don't use the term "Jade" anymore. Neither do they use Jezebel or Parnel, which historically were slang for the same thing (Parnel falling out of use toward the end of the Medieval era). What do these names have in common? They're all *lovely*! Parnel is a little exotic, yet simple and easy to remember. Jezebel is a gorgeous alternative to the uber-popular Isabella, with the potential nicknames "Jez," "Bell," or "Bella." However, out of these three names, I would most likely use Jade. As a first *or* middle name, I think it's beautiful. It flows--it's a very soft name--and it goes with just about anything. Additionally, I think of gorgeous Jade jewelry when I hear it.
I just hope Jade doesn't become the new Marie (which is the middle name of nearly every girl I know).
-- erb816  7/21/2010
I like this name. It's my dog's name, and she's a female. It's also my friend's name, and he is a boy. Here in Brazil we pronounce it as j AH geeh, and in Arabic it's pronounced jAHD.
-- maryy.ia  9/19/2010
I hate to judge, but all of the Jades I've known/seen are too outgoing, loud, and obnoxious.
-- Liesl  10/4/2010
It's rather harsh sounding, and it reminds me way too much of the trashy variant "Jaden".
-- Black_X  2/24/2011
This was supposed to be my name, but one of my parents' friends told them the name sounded "like a black name and she will be made fun of when she is older." but honestly, I was named Rylie and I don't know ANY African-American girls with this name nor do I think it sounds "black". In fact, I know NO ONE with this name. I wish my parents would have never met that ignorant friend who, in a roundabout way, stuck me with such a ghastly name.

Every Jade I know and have known has been pretty horrible and bitchy and uneducated. Also it's such a common name, and so unspecial and just... ugly to put it lightly.
-- nevercontent  12/21/2011
Well what can I say? My first name is Jade. I love it. My entire life I have had such a unique name. I always get complimented and to be honest... I'm glad it's not so common. I get compliments daily... yet I am always the only Jade. SO.. I love it! I plan on naming my first daughter Jade. I love the fact I am so unique and yet my name is so simple.

Jade Ramsey is a English actress best known for her role as Patricia Williamson on the Nickelodeon television show House Of Anubis.
-- Anonymous User  5/1/2012
While I am not crazy about the English pronunciation (jaYde), I love the way the French say it: zjahd.

To say it: Say the word "should." Now say "should" with a "z" sound at the beginning, like "zhould." It should sound like "zhood." Now take that z/s sound and use it for the "j" in "Jade." You should come up with "Zjahd."
-- lillyanna  6/23/2012
My name is Erica Jade but I've gone by Jade my whole life, it is the name my mom chose for me and Erica just went with it well and Erica Jade sounds a lot better than Jade Erica... I love my name, I haven't had any teasing due to the name however when I introduce myself I often find myself spelling my name because people want to call me Jane or Jay. I do however hate all the different spellings or similar names people use such as Jaede, Jaden, Jada, etc. I think Jade is different enough as it is and it should be left that way J-A-D-E... call me old-fashion I guess.
-- ericajade  8/17/2012
It didn't become a name until the seventies, therefore I think it'll sound ridiculous on anyone over the age of thirty. Ruby is pretty, but Jade sounds a little too modern and hippie-ish to me. But it's a lot better than, say, kaylee or Madison. I'd have to say I prefer Jane to Jade though, but I know a lot of people would disagree.
-- Anonymous User  2/2/2013
Jade Harley from the MSPaintAdventure web comic Homestuck, is a famous bearer of this name.
-- LINDERPHERSON  2/8/2013
I think of Jade as a unique, adventurous girl growing up in asia. With clear blue/green eyes. I want to name one of my future daughters this. Maybe why it is so beautiful to me is because I grew up in Asia, where many women are named Jade in their local dialects-- but I think it would best suit a girl with Jade-like eyes.

As for it being prostitutey--- grow up! So what if trash culture has used the name, why don't we steal it back? Take an ill-reputable name and by good character, make it known as a good name! We can powerfully change the world if we believe we can.
-- Nadire  5/23/2013
Honestly, when I hear Jade I think of the girl from that Jackie Chan cartoon. She was a badass, and didn't take shit from nobody.
