Gender: F Meaning of Jessie: "wealthy" Origin of Jessie: Anglicized form of Teasagh or diminutive of Jessica Jessie's Popularity in 2016: #642

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.

Jessie Redmon Fauset was a novelist known for her involvement in the Harlem Renaissance.
