Popularity: this week.

This rare streamlined form of Jessica made a brief appearance on the Top 1000 in 2012, thanks largely to its use for the Jemima Kirke character on the HBO series Girls. But though its far less familiar than mother name Jessica, its still too close to that name, which was used too much for too long for any relatives to make a near-term comeback. Try Jessamy or Jessamine.
