Acts 17 (NIV Bible) means to heal or physician. I am impressed that it means Joshua in Hebrew.

One odd aspect of this common name is that it contains single letter abbreviations of five consecutive months. July, August, September, October, November.

This is the name of my beloved. He is, in all respects, a gentle healer. Though it is common (and possibly considered "ordinary" by some), I now feel a tender regard for any other bearers of this name upon initially meeting them.

I think Jason is probably the greatest name of all time! Especially if you have twins you should name them Jason and Daniel. Even if they are girls. Jason means HEALER!

My dad has this name, and he has noticed the July-August-September-October-November thing too. This is interesting because since it means "to heal," to heal takes time, and five months is quite some time. Not that I think it was on purpose or anything, I mean I wouldn't put it past God that He did do it on purpose, but I just thought it was a cool coincidence. My dad has also said he can't imagine himself an old grouchy man with the same name. I think it is beautiful, though, and if you are a "healer," and or it means to heal, wouldn't the name have a young connotation anyway? I also find it interesting that it is related to Joshua, because according to this site Joshua means "God is my Salvation" and Jason means "To Heal." I guess if it is implying in the Joshua definition that since "God is my Salvation," He is also my healer, that would make sense how it's related. And thank you to whoever posted the scripture for this name at the top of the page I shall go look it up. But anyway, as far as personal impression goes, I have known a Jason who was a Sunday school substitute teacher sometimes and a pediatrician. Interesting, huh? Because my dad has the name Jason Mark, I don't know I've always just loved the name. I had this very real looking newborn baby doll when I was little, and I named it after him, to which he said he was too young to be a grandpa, let alone a father, for he is very young. It's weird seeing other people named Jason, though--it's not the same. Know what I mean? My favorite combo for this name is Jason Brenton, Jason after Dad and Brenton after my math teacher's son. I am using this name in my novel.

Jon Wamsley played Jason Walton from "The Waltons." He, alledgedly as far as I caught on, was named after the hero Jason (of the Argonauts) or something. I didn't really like this name before but when I started watching this series, I really like it now for a boy. His character now gives it a musical feel, since he is the talented musician of the family. It's a nice name and I like the meaning "a healing."

Actually, the New Testament translation of the Hebrew name "Joshua" is "Jesus," not "Jason."

Jason in the N.T. was a Greek who lived in the city of Thessalonica; he was a friend of the Apostle Paul. His brief story is told in Acts 17:1-9.

This is a very safe name choice that you can't really go wrong with, as the name suits many different types of guys, be they young, old, black, white, good-looking or ugly. It's an overused, stale name, but at least the guy shouldn't have to worry about discrimination. I'd never use a Biblical name, but not all of them are bad.

My son, Jason, was born in 1980. I thought then that it was a really cool name, and still do. During this time, "J" names were very popular for boys and it seemed like all my friends kid's had names like Joshua, Jacob, Jeremy, Justin, etc. I could go to the mall and call out for my son, and 5 boys would respond to my calling "Jason".
As for it not being a good name for "old guys", keep in mind that all the Jason's who were born in the early 1980's will all be old guys at the same time, and then it will be an old guy's name!

Every year when the new Social Security name index comes out, I'm always surprised that Jason is still hanging around in the Top 100, and that it only fell out of the Top 50 a few years ago. Wasn't this name already dated, passé, and cliché a good 30 years ago? I do like that it means "healer" and that it's from Greek mythology, but unfortunately it also now reminds me of my jerk of a third love who majorly broke my heart when I was twenty-two. I'd really like to know why so many people have kept using it with such frequency in spite of the fact that every other guy who was born in the Seventies and Eighties is named Jason.

My mother named my brother Jason back in 1961. It was not a well-known name at the time. Every teenage girl who heard it seemed to fall in love with the name and name her son Jason when she had a baby. The reason my brother ended up with the name is that it was my grandfather and uncle's middle name. Their first names were Percy, which my dad and uncle ruled out as my brother's name. Both Percy and Jason were considered "sissy" names that in the late 1800's and early 1900's. I guess Jason outgrew that connotation, but I am sure Percy hasn't.

I don't think I've ever met a Jason I didn't like. Such a handsome-sounding name with lots of positive associations, and I like the nickname Jay. Of course, Mason has skyrocketed and is now as popular as Jason was in the 70s and 80s, but at least Jason's still in the top 100...
mrose19  2/15/2013
I've actually only known two people named Jason in my entire life, so it's not very common to me. It's a heck of a lot better than Jayden and mason, which are by far more juvenile and immature sounding. I honestly don't see anything wrong with naming your son Jason, it's a nice name with a nice meaning that will age well and shouldn't induce any teasing. I'm actually kind of happy this is still in the top 100 :)

Martha Gold  7/27/2013
Jason is not a name that I would normally like if it were not for my love for the books by Robert Ludlum (involving the character Jason Bourne) and the films. Still, it is not something that I would personally use. The passable attractiveness and decent durability (despite seeming a bit childish) cannot disguise the fact that it ties in with the overuse and banal naming trends of the past few years.
Francesca  7/29/2013
Part of the reason the name Jason is still in the top 100 could be that a lot of members of the generation where Jason was at its peak are having children now, and they could be naming their sons Jason Jr. Just a guess.

Ya, this is my name. I didn't start seeing other people using my name until I became around 21 years old. It's kind of weird because I'm just starting to realize a lot of things and the bible actually says that God's name is Jah, Jesus is the son of God, John 3:16 says that God sent his only BEGOTTEN son into the world. There is only one me. It's kind of weird seeing other people with my name. Even in the Bible Jesus said that he is not good, only God is good. I believe I have met Jesus a few times and he's an OK friend, maybe the only friend I have other than myself.

I have this name and so many of my friends did in high school that we all went by nicknames or our last name just so it wouldn't get confusing. I've always felt it was a bit vanilla, but there is the aforementioned Jason Bourne and of course Jason Statham, so it has some coolness cred.

Not necessarily a name I paid much attention to while growing up (except for the fact that there were so many of them!) but I really like it now. It's a Biblical name too. People have been using Mason instead of Jason - I'd love to see/hear of more baby Jasons again now that it's not quite as popular! I guess it might be a popular middle name soon, for those who name their babies after a grandpa/relative.

Jason is a nice name but perhaps my opinion on it is a bit biased. I have a brother named this (my mom's first born) She has told me time after time that she had the name picked out from the get go if she ended up having a boy. Indeed she did have a boy and the name, "Jason" was picked without any hesitations.

To be honest, I would like the name even if I didn't have any biased connections to it (:

Ugh. Jason. I've never liked this name much. Although there are some really awesome Jasons out there- Jason Bateman, Jason Bourne, etc.- I just can't stand this name! It's not that I have anything against it... just something about the sound of it.
ThatOneAuthorGirl  7/6/2016
Do not name your kid Jason, let's look at the reasons why:

1.) Jason of the Argonauts abandons his wife and kids, and Jason is also killed instantly in his sleep when his ship falls on him. So not only does the name have a dishonorable history, but who wants to be named after a guy that died poor, lonely and in a freakish accident.
2.) Jason the High Priest in ancient Jerusalem attained the priesthood corruptly, and then later defiled his position. The name Jason is further tarnished with corruption.
3.) Jason of Friday the 13th, this reason alone is enough to not name anyone Jason... I mean who wants to be named after a fictional mass-murder?
4.) When you become older, having the word 'son" in your name sounds somewhat 'boyish'.
5.) You will be told several times throughout your life, that your name is in the Calendar, oh gosh,.. wow!

I could go on, but I hope this suffices.

A very cool name. One of my favorite names on my list, it's very handsome and has a great meaning. I love the nickname Jay for Jason. It ultimately has a very modern sound while not being extremely common. It's also not a made up name. I can't see why a person can complain about the name. It's especially perfect if you don't want to use the name Mason, because of popularity.
