I agree with previous posters - Jessica isn't really a dated name here (at least I don't think so) and I know lots of little ones as well.
@whirligig - That's so true, nicknames for Jessica don't tend to vary much, although I do remember I met a little Icie once who was full-named Jessica - how sweet is that!

I don't get it either, honestly. I used to massively dislike it, but I sort of see the appeal now. I think a similar trend will follow with Olivia, Amelia, Charlotte. They'll be around in the UK far after the US has got bored with them.
I know Jessicas in there 20s, but also at least 3 under 5. It's used across classes as well - but a lot I know are the 'chavy-type'.
Siblings they have - Georgia, Luke, Olivia, Harrison, Madeleine, Benjamin, Rosie, Charlotte, Tyler, Ella.Emmett - Cathal - Eoghan - Baez - Wilfred - Rufus - Hugh - Virgil - Amos - Emanuel
Rosemary - Lettice - Maude - Cordelia - Billie - Fenella - Una - Nancy - Tabitha - Eilidh
Names for dreamy, sublime little darlings. The smell of springtime air, freckled knees, damp hair. Soft evening light and fiery hearts.

Well, I'm a Jessica and I was born in 1993. It appears it shot up at some point in the late 1980's/early 1990's and I think it was number 3/4 when I was born. In my year at school there were at least 6 Jessica's (four of which -myself included - in the same class). I think it was number one on a couple of occasions. I know nameberry describes it as the successor to Jennifer in terms of popularity.
Despite the popularity, I like my name and I think it'll age with me quite well.
Do their parents call them by their full name?
I personally prefer to be called Jessica rather than Jess or Jessie (urgh, loathe that nn), honestly I don't tend to respond straight away to Jess.
What are their siblings' names?
I have one brother, who is 8 years older than me and he's called Daniel.
Hope this answers some of your queries

I know a seven year old Jessica, a twelve year old Jessica and at least 10 nineties Jessica's. I also know a just Jessie. I see it very nineties and dated. But its still in the top 30 in Australia. Two of the Jessica's I know have sisters named Sarah the seven year old Jessica's sister is Emily. The Jessie has a brother Seth and a sister Shannon. Hope that helps
