My friend is callled Jay Jay, but her real name is Jorrellaine. I'm sure it can be used for females as well, I don't know why it's only clasified as masculine.

Jay Robinson - an actor probably best known for his riotous and famous role as Emperor Caligula in "The Robe" (1953) and "Demetrius and the Gladiators." (1954). I am not sure of his real name. I don't think Jay is an independent name.

Can also be a short name for James, Jacob, Jason or others starting with "Ja."

Jay, Sparrow, and Robin always come together when I think of one.

Due to the amount of immature boys in my form, poor Jay is called Jay the gay.

My son's name is James and we call him Jay for short. I find Jay nicer than Jim or Jamie.

Jay is a good nickname for a name like James or Jacob. It shouldn't be used on its own though, it has no etymology and just sounds like a nickname for a longer name.
-- Ki28  1/23/2008
This makes a decent nickname, but it's a bit youthful and minimalist as an official name.
-- slight night shiver  6/8/2008
Jay might be nice as a nickname, but PLEASE - do NOT use this as a first name. Middle name, maybe, but not first name. (Unless you like the Hindi name or meaning of Jay.) Anyway, that's just my opinion. I sorta like the sound, but I really think that it should either be short for something or a nickname - never a first name. It has no real structure as a name.
-- RachelLee  7/2/2008
Okay, well, perhaps in SOME cases it can serve as a good first name. *Takes back some of what I said earlier* In my opinion though, it should only be followed by a substantial middle name, or else it won't sound right.

A famous bearer of this name is Denver Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler.

There's Jay, then Jake, then Jacob. It's like a chain in my opinion. Anyways I like this name.

Jay Leno, comedian and former host of The Tonight Show.
-- slyboots  11/15/2009
Looks incomplete, and can easily go from sounding fairly pretty to annoying. Use it as a nickname.

Jay DeMarcus, bassist of Rascal Flatts. :)
-- Harvey1409  5/9/2010
I actually really like Jay as a name on its own, as well as a nickname for Jason or James or what have you. It reminds me of a blue jay.

Famous bearer is Jay Gatsby. Or James.

It's a nice name with style but I wouldn't name a kid this because of the Blue Jay bird.
-- Melys11  1/16/2013
It's a nice name on its own; it's not my favorite, but I still like it. It also can be a nickname for pretty much any male name beginning with the letter J :-)
-- Oohvintage  3/25/2013
I like it as a nickname for another name like James or Jason for example, but independently I don't like it at all, it sounds incomplete and there are 0 good nicknames for it.
-- Anonymous User  3/21/2015
It's alright as a nickname. Although I can not stand it as an independent name because it's rather dull.
-- Anonymous User  5/25/2015
I'd use it as a full name. I've met guys named Jay and it always stands out and sounds nice. If I do use it, it'll most likely be used as a nickname, but only because I already like a lot of "J" names for boys.
-- silly_rabbit  10/11/2015
I though Jay could be a girls' name too! It sounds like a gender-neutral name to me, similar to Robin/Robyn and Sparrow. It could be a short form of Jamie, Jaime and Jayden, which can all be girls' names.
