I think that Jessa could also be used as a nickname for Jessamine. Jessa seems to me a feminine name that is not as popular as other nicknames for Jessica - such as Jessie, Jessy, or Jess.

I like this heaps better than Jessica. I like Jeska too but it wasn't listed. ;(

You could also spell it Jecca.

This just doesn't sound right. If you really like the sound, name your daughter Jessica, and call her Jessa if you wish. I personally think Jess and Jessie are much, much better nicknames for Jessica, this is just plain ugly.

A girl in my year has this name, but spelled Jesa. It's her full name, not short for Jessica or anything.

Jessa Duggar is one of the kids in the family featured in "18 Kids and Counting".

My name is Jessica, and I always found it boring. But I adore the name Jessa, and think it would look great hyphenated like 'Jessa-Lee', 'Jessa-Rose', 'Jessa-Mae'. A girl in my class is named Jessa Mae, I think it's very pretty.

This is SOOOO pretty! I love it!

The use of "Jessa" as a full first name is incredibly juvenile and need I say it? Unattractive. As a nickname it stands on the thin line of neutral grounds... if that line is crossed to first, it immediately will receive my vote of childish, unprofessional, unintelligent, and ugly.
This name is something that I like to call "forever young"... it will not make good transition into a woman's business career from childhood.

I disagree with Francesca, and there really is no need to be so incredibly rude about a name, for god's sakes. This name is not by any means ugly, let alone "forever young" I think it's a heck of a lot more mature sounding than all the Braden, Jayden, Aidan, Kylie, kaylee, Kayla, etc... Although it doesn't really seem like an actual name. I think it's a very refreshing and unique name compared to Jessica, personally :)

Jessa is also a female Sikh name meaning 'devoted spirit'.

I love this name.
To me it's much prettier than Jessica.

Rather than being merely a diminutive of Jessica, I don't see why Jessa can't be a feminine form of Jesse.

My name is Jessa Mae and I love it. Some people says my name is unique and it's a very nice name. It's kind of mean how some people are saying my name or Jessa Mae is an unattractive name. For me, I love my name and I think it's very unique.

An obvious famous bearer would be Jessa (Duggar) Seewald... I've never met a Jessa (only Jessicas) but I really, really dig this name a lot.

This name is kinda ditzy-sounding, and I can't picture an older woman with this name. It's made worse by the fact that it has the association with that disgusting Bible-thumping Duggar family.

I've only ever met one girl in middle school who used this name. Personally, I'm torn on it. It is definitely easier to say and spell than the much more conventional Jessica. However, it feels as though something is missing.
