It seems also another nickname for Jason, like the short form Jace.

I like this name because my little sister is named this and I've literally met no other Jaci's. I also like it because it rhymes with popular named like Macey and Lacey and Gracie and names that end with a prominent "e' sound.

Alternatively, the name bestowed by two former hippies turned pillars of society, named Jack and Cieli, on their daughter (Ja + Ci = Jaci). Pronounced "jay-cee," not "jacky," though the accent is on the a.

My name is Jaclyn so I spell Jackie like Jaci. It doesn't look as harsh as Jackie but unfortunately I get a lot of Jay-cee pronunciations. It's annoying but I'm not changing the spelling.

First of all, the Tupi language's background is rather complex. To sum it up briefly, it is a name for the group of similar languages that the Indians in Brazil use. The most common of these languages is Old Tupi, more commonly known as Nheengatu or the "fine language", spoken in the Rio Negro region.

Secondly, in the U.S.A and in the U.K., Jaci is either a nickname for Jacintha, Jacinda, or Jaclyn. Though I do have to admit the meaning for the Tupi word is pretty.

Jaci is really a Native American name. It came from Tupi "îá sy", and it's the name of the Tupi moon goddess.
