JessieHeart

  • Origin:

    Anglicized form of Teasagh or diminutive of Jessica
  • Meaning:

    "wealthy"
  • Description:

    Jessie has never been used as much as Jennie/Jenny, partly because it's a boys’ name as well (spelled Jesse), but it does have a friendly and unpretentious pioneer feel. In Scotland, it's found as an Anglicized form of Teasagh, itself a form of Jean, and is used as a full name. And in the rest of the world, Jessie may be short for Jessica or used on its own.

EddieHeart

  • Origin:

    Diminutive of Edward et al
  • Meaning:

    "wealthy"
  • Description:

    Most parents today call their Edwards Edward -- and we tend to think that's the right call. But it's worth noting that Eddie has been in the Top 1000 every year since records began in 1880; indeed, it was a mainstay on the Top 100 through the 1950s.
