Jason, the Number 3 name for the entire decade of the 1970s -- thus the title of our original baby-naming book, Beyond Jennifer & Jason -- is more likely to be dad's name now than baby's. But Jason still hangs in just outside the Top 75.

Jason's megapopularity definitely launched stylish newcomers ranging from Jacob to Mason to Jackson.

In Greek myth, Jason is the leader of the Argonauts who went in search of the Golden Fleece, while in the Bible he was an early Christian who was hospitable to St. Paul. Jason figures in the novels of William Faulkner, especially in The Sound and the Fury.
