My father's name is Jerry, it has a lot of meaning to me since he passed when I was quite young. My first son's name will be Jerry.

This can also be a pet form of JEREMIAH.

It's an awesome name, it's on my list of names for guys if I have one. I also love Jerry Seinfeld, he's awsome! And I think it's sexy.

I like the name Jerry as a nickname for Jericho.

I know a girl called Jerry, she is lively, happy and quite clever. I have never met a boy called Jerry.

My name is Jerry and I'm female. I was named after my Grandma Jerry (real name Myrtle). She just liked the name Jerry, so everyone called her that! I'm very honored to be her namesake. I wouldn't change my name, nor the spelling for anything.

The late Jerry Orbach, best known as playing Det. Lennie Briscoe on the original Law & Order (my absolute favorite character on the show). Also played the father in the original "Diry Dancing" and was a prominent actor on Broadway.

A pretty decent name for a boy, but I don't like it (or its variations, like Jeri) for a girl.

Also a pet form of Jerome. [noted -ed]

I think that the spelling is supposed to be different if you're a girl, I think most Jerry-girls spell it "Jerri" or am I mistaken? That's how it works for Terri/Terry.

It's also a pet form of Gerard.

Jerry B. Jenkins is the name of a famous author. He has written many books for youth and adults. The Left Behind series for adults, the Left Behind series for children, the Red Rock mysteries for youth, and many others. Jerry is not considered famous by many, but if you've got your name out there on something big for people to see, like a book or two, then I'd consider you famous.

I associate this name with jerks like Jerry Springer, and, much worse, the now dead Jerry Falwell. I don't like the name anyway, especially on women.

I don't care for this name, but at least it looks normal on a guy. I really hate this spelling on girls, since it looks too boyish. Why not spell it Geri or Jeri to look more feminine? And the association with the hideous actor Jerry O'Connell totally puts me off.

This is pronounced JAIR-ee.

Jerry Cruncher, a character in Charles Dickens' "A Tale of Two Cities."

Comedian Jerry Lewis was actually born Joseph Levitch. He used the professional name Joey Lewis, but soon changed it to Jerry Lewis to avoid confusion with another comedian and a boxing champion.

It kind of irritates me that Jerry as an independent name is more common than Jerome and Gerald in the US. Jerry sounds more like a nickname to me.

My grandfather's name is Jerry. And it sounds casual and good.

It would have to be an incredibly beautiful woman named Jerry before I dared to date her.
angolmois  3/6/2016
It was an okay name at first glance, but then I began to dislike this name. Jeremiah/Jeremy is better. It’s a hurricane name and was used in 1989, 1995, 2001, 2007, and 2013. It’s scheduled to be used again in 2019.

Jerry Meredith is Reverend Meredith's oldest son and his oldest child in Rainbow Valley. He marries one of Anne's daughters (I think?).
