Jade's International Variations

Giada (Italian)


mintkat Says:


I agree, this is my name and my father surprised me with a Jade cat as a gift!

paulapuddephatt Says:


I think Emma Bunton is with a guy called Jade. It sounds weird on a bloke, to me.

paulapuddephatt Says:


Same here. Jade and Emerald are my absolute favourite gemstone names.

paulapuddephatt Says:


Yes, I think you're right. Jane and Rose have both been overused as middle names, and actually make better first names. Jade sounds lovely as a first or middle name, but I do hope it won't end up as another that is used almost exclusively in the middle name spot.

paulapuddephatt Says:


Rosamund, Lucia, Lucy, Charlotte, Emilia, Bryony. I don't know if that helps. We all have different styles. I love Ava-Jade. Good luck. 😃 Xxx

Cayleen Says:


Ava-Jade Alana, Ava-Jade Zoé, Ava-Jade Noelle, Ava-Jade Lucy, Ava-Jade Milan, Ava-Jade Loretta, Ava-Jade Breann

JadaSimone Says:


I'm considering naming my baby girl Ava-Jade, what would be a good middle name to go with it?
Ava-Jade ____ Walker

ashleyisabellalaaaa Says:


It's a really pretty first name but I think Jade would be a cool middle name alternative to like Jane or Rose
I wish the Jane in my name was replaced with Jade

paulapuddephatt Says:


I love gemstone names, and this is one of my absolute favourites.

Thepandaprincess223 Says:


Really like Jade I must have a thing for green gems because Emerald is a name I also really like.

pixelatedinfants Says:


I prefer this to Jane though I feel both as MNs are very filler

Fluffykitten101 Says:


I know a Jade who is one of the very few people I don't "click" with. Its really hard to be nice to her because she's just so stubborn, argumentative, dumb, close minded and annoying! I dislike her. But then I heard the name Jade on a cute fluffy dog and now I quite like the name xD!

fromtheocean12 Says:


It is beautiful! You're both so lucky to have such a lovely name :)

Lena_Aline Says:


Same! I had always thought that Jade was strictly a girls' name until then.

Lena_Aline Says:


I know a boy named Jade. He is very sweet and kind, but I was very surprised to hear his name was Jade.

RoddyThlayli Says:


Weirdly enough, when I first saw this name I didn't really like it. Then I read the comments on it, and now I like it a lot more.

Talasa Says:


I really like it for a boy too.

Imnotputtingmynameonline Says:


I know two Jades. One sort of ruined it for me, but the other wears it really well and is nice. I think it is a short, strong, and beautiful name.

Eva Thyssen Says:


This is a nice name.
Jada is not the Spanish version of Jade. Jade in Spanish is just... Jade. Pronounced 'KHA-day.' I'm from a Spanish speaking country and I've never met a Jada. The only Jada I know is the ANTM contestant.

MJadeF Says:


This is my middle name. :)

Jade Says:


Thats My Name Too And They Say My Name Is Beautiful Too :D

Jade Says:


My Name :D

BookGirl15377 Says:


I think a great thing to do if you gave your baby this name is (when they get older) to give them a pendant or bracelet or something with a piece of jade, the stone. I'd be a really nice thing to do to show your love to your child, and they'd appreciate it when they get older. When your child is an adult, you could even give assorted jade things to her for birthdays.

Guest Says:


I always think "only mean girls have this name".

senseandsensibility Says:


I felt in love with this name when I saw it on one of the cashiers in my bank. She has straight blonde hair and is generally beautiful. She's also like the nicest person ever, which made me feel attracted to this name even more!

AnonymousPerson Says:


I really like this name. It's much nicer than Jude, and has a different feel to it than Jane.

LadyVanRaven Says:


Was a name my mother considered naming me (and I wish she had). Love the image I get of a headstrong, determined, humorous and creative girl.

Cornmuffin231098 Says:


That's my name! People always say my name is beautiful.

totallykif Says:


I once knew a boy name Jade!
