The name means "light-hearted". I know, because my name is YoKasta, which is the Spanish spelling of the same name!

I LOVE this! It has a million cute nicknames too. Josie, Joey, JoJo, Jo, Cassie, Casta, Jasta, Jassie, Asta...

I've heard it pronounced "YO-cast-ah" and "HO-cast-ah."

I love this name! But it should never be given to a child. After all, would you enjoy thinking that your grandson would grow up to have sex with his mother, Jocasta? Not to mention that she would be incredibly teased throughout school - and no one would want to marry her, considering the boys would be afraid that one day, their son would come and murder them. Great name, though! ^.^

I like this name a lot, although the Oedipus myth precludes most chance of it being used by anyone.

Can also be spelled Iocasta, since classical Latin does not use the letter "J".

In a series called The Land Of Elyon, jocastas are magical rocks that give the owner the power to speak with animals. They also have tiny messages etched into them.

It's pretty cool, I mean, I like the 'casta' part.

This name should be taboo. It's associated with a "MILF", and I knew why without even reading the myth. I also hate the "joke" and "cast" in this name.

I like this name a great deal. The association with the character doesn't bother me.

I like the name Jocasta. The librarian in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones bore this name, which I think is cool!

Sounds like a surname...

The name Jocasta sounds like a name intelligent, artistic parents would give to their little girl. It has a playful sound to it when spoken outloud. I think most people would try to shorten it--it is sort of a mouthful. I suppose she could be called Cassie or Jo. Very unique.

I LOVE the name - since I have the name! My parents went to a James Cagney movie in 1950's - A Tribute To A Bad Man- and the girl in the movie (a Native American girl) was named JoKasta - which is how they first learned the name. I am the youngest of 4 children and my name has been a conversation piece for my entire life. Most people think it is two names - it is a great name and I don't go by the Greek Mythology namesake!
My parents spelled it with a capital K instead of a lower case c. It's a great name and has made me the person I am- UNIQUE!
