Personal Impression
Nobody still thinks of Jace Norman, actor who played Henry Hart on that show I used to watch when I was little, Henry Danger? Up the tube...

Jace Herondale from the Mortal Instruments. His full name is Jonathon Christopher. Everyone calls him Jace for short.

Just name your kid Jason. Don't burden him with this trashy name. This is the kind of name that shallow mothers give, despite their father's objection.

Sounds too trendy.

I named my oldest son Jace in 2007. Was not a teen mom, was, and still am, married. It is not common in spite of the recent popularity. If you don’t like it fine, but to try to impress stereotypes to the parents is rude. I didn’t name him after any person or character in a book, tv or anything else.

His name is unique without being strange, and it fits him.

He loves his name. He has only met one other Jace in his whole life.

Sounds kinda punk/emo, could also be short for Jacinth.

I like Jace. It's an original nickname for Jason.

As I am named Jace I like the name for obvious reasons. But its random spike in popularity is only slightly annoying as I really liked it being uncommon, like in the 80's when I was born. But I have never been told that my name sounds incomplete, that's a new one to see. Oh and as for me personally I was named after my great uncle down to my middle and last names. No teen mom or dad here, lol.

I don't think Jace is a short name for Jason. My name is Jace. I'm popular and there is no hate on my name and I like it.

I like Jace because it is a short form of Jason. Infact, Jason seems dated in my opinion and too formal. Jace could be a good (even if informal nowadays) English variant...
Maybe in the future it will be what Jack is for John.

I love the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare and agree that Jace is a wonderful name. By the way people, books are very important in life because books is how we first learned everything before technology. I also like the spelling of Jase and Jayce.

I like the sound of this name & I can see it's appeal! This is a very cool literary name!
― Anonymous User  7/12/2015
It's just OK as a nickname for Jason. But as an independent name it is incredibly dull.

I would also like to add that the books aren't a "fad" and that I shall remember both your comment and the books for years to come just to spite you, *insert choice word here*.

Personally, I love the name Jace, and what difference does it make if you name your child after a Dickens character or a character from a modern boom? It's not as if all classic book names are good names, look at Wackford Squeers!

Let me get this straight. Jason is losing popularity in favor of Mason, yet its FIRST SYLLABLE has cracked the top 100? Sure, it's a cute nickname for Jason, but it just sounds tacky and incomplete as a legal name.

Jace Wayland is a main character of The Mortal Instruments book series by Cassandra Clare, The books are very popular and are currently being made into films, this is possibly why the names popularity has gone up recently.

Personally I quite like this name, definitely not a favorite, but it's not bad. I think it would be much better as a nickname, and frankly I think it's seriously obnoxious and snooty to insist that you can't name a child after a literary character unless it's from a classic like Jane Eyre or Shakespeare's works. Yes, those characters are all great but so might be other more unknown characters. Books and stories can change people's lives and to say that you can't show your appreciation or love of a certain character due to the fact that a name you don't like is used in the book is ridiculous. I find it especially ridiculous that you have said in your comments that you've never even heard of the book. How would you know what it's about or who the character is? I've never read the book either, but those are really sanctimonious comments.

Ew. I've never heard of that book, but people should really be naming their children after family members or actually important people, not teenage book characters. I bet a lot of people who use this 'name' are teen parents.
― Anonymous User  7/26/2013
I have to agree. I have never heard of the character in question, but I think if you're gonna name your child after a literary figure, at least pick one that's from a classic book with history, not some trendy fad that no one will remember in 5 years.

I don't see the problem in naming a child after a book character. Anonymous there seems to think that (s)he is the most important dictator character to walk the earth and that names that people love shouldn't be used if they're from a newer book. Hermione, Harry, Ron/Ronald, etc, have all seen an increase due to Harry Potter so why not Jace? The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices books are of great quality and I think that names such as "Tessa", "Jessamine", "Sophie", "Jem" and "Clarissa"/"Clary" won't be far behind in making themselves known here. It isn't just "teen parents" who would call their child be book characters' names as teenagers grow up into adults who, still with the love of the books, will name their children by such names. I personally believe that people should name their child with whatever name they choose as if the name "Destiny" or "Nevaeh" can make it to the ranks then why not good names?!
Amylouise  2/11/2015
What the...? Why is this all of a sudden in the top 100? Is it because one of those horrible teen mom "stars" used it? It's an ok nickname for Jason, but it just doesn't sound right as a full name. It sounds very similar to the overly youthful and trendy "chase", which isn't a very good thing. At least it's not another -aden name. But names that have rapid surges in popularity are usually not good choices.
― Anonymous User  6/15/2013
I'm sorry, but this isn't a name. It's just the first syllable of Jason. It even sounds incomplete. Frankly, I'm rather surprised at Jace's surge in popularity.

It is also commonly pronounced "jay-SEE" (like the initials JC).
