A ridiculously plain name, yet I still like it. Hmm?

I know a very sweet girl named Jill, which is probably why I think of it as a sweet name. It's very similar to Jane, but it doesn't have the same dark quality, so I don't like it as much. Still, it is a very pretty name and I much prefer the shortened "Jill" to any version of "Jillian".

My name is Jill, and I like it that I don't have to spell it often when I speak to people on the phone or meet new people. It's a fun name - Short and punchy. There are of course the endless jokes about Jack.

I LOVE the name Jill. I had a teacher whose first name was Jill, and she was amazing. She was fun-loving, silly, smart, patient, kind, and totally awesome all around. I don't know if I'd name my daughter Jill, but it is definitely a pretty name and whenever I hear it I think of the teacher who influenced me in so many good ways!

I read somewhere that Jill meant 'sweetheart' or 'girl', but I'm not quite sure.

Jill is such a happy name - and all the Jills I have known have had equally sunny personalities (with the exception of my elementary school librarian). It's like a rule. If your name is Jill, you're going to be a sweet person. :)

I don't mind Gillian at all, but I hate Jill. The name just doesn't sound very pleasant. In addition to that, I have grown to associate this name with both an infuriating anti-choice blogger named Jill Stanek and an annoying feminist blogger named Jill Filipovic. So, not only do I find the name ugly, it reminds me of at least two people I don't like.

My name is Jill, growing up I didn't like my name thought it was too plain and simple. I always wanted some unique exotic name. But, as I have gotten older I am glad I don't have to give the spelling everytime I tell them my name and I also feel the name sounds youthful, so hopefully as I get even older people will see me as being younger. :-)

I love this name so much! I knew it for a while in the back of my head, but then I got to know a wonderfully weird person with the name Jill. Though I don't know her very well and don't see her anymore; ever since I couldn't get the name out of my mind and am quite sure I'll call my first daughter this!

It's ok, but a bit boring. Also sounds old so I don't think it would suit a child.
