Baby Names That Start With J

Updated on January 25, 2018

Choosing The Perfect Name, Using The Letter J

If your looking for baby names that start with J, you've really hit the jackpot my friend. I have designed this page to be the perfect spot to find names that start with the letter J! You can browse by specific categories or check them all out! There are millions of names to choose from when it comes to naming your baby. If you are looking for a specific letter it can often be hard to find a good list. Most websites I've been to have so much going on with so many different types of names, origins of names, different letters, and different meanings that it can be hard to find exactly what your looking for. So I decided to make some more letter specific baby name pages, beginning with J. My son's name is Junior, and I figured that J would be a great letter to start with! If you happen to find the perfect name for your baby, I'd love to hear from you! I'm expecting a little boy in April, so I too am on the name lookout. Feel free to leave me a comment below!

Unique Names That Start With J

There are so many great J names, but if your like me you are probably wanting something a little bit more unique. I think having a name that is odd or unheard of is a good thing! There are probably going to be a hundred kids named Chris, and a hundred girls named Brittany in your child's school right? Now don't get me wrong, those are great names but I'd rather find one that not a lot of other kids will have. So below you will find some very unique names that start with J. If you still haven't found a great baby name by now, maybe you'll find the perfect one in the unique names section!

Biblical Names For Boys And Girls

For many people, choosing a biblical name is very important. I would love to use a name from the bible, but I have a hard time finding ones that I really like. If your looking for a biblical name that starts with the letter J, the choices are even slimmer. But don't worry, I've done my homework! Below are some of the best biblical names that start with J that I've found. I personally like Jericho for a boy and Jerah for a girl.

Names that start with J

Some of these are alright, but most of them are kind of weird names. Weird isn't always a bad thing though. Just because the names are much different than what we are used to doesn't mean they can't be viable choices for the right people! Take Jaxteraman for example, this is a very odd name for a little boy. But someone might just see this and fall madly in love with it, (hopefully not) but you never know. Hope you enjoy this list of names, I thought they deserved to be mentioned and some are pretty neat! So without further ado, here they are!

      Although all our names, except for my Mom, starts with the letter A, I love names that start with the letter J. It all started when a cute little boy I met in the kindergarten school when my little bro was also attending kindergarten. His name is Jehovah Jireh. His name stuck to my head.

      James is a good old-fashioned name that we have on both sides of my family (both my grandfathers plus my brother and my son's middle names). I've always liked Jordan and Jordyn, too. Lots of good names to choose from here!
