Girl Names Starting with J
Girl names starting with the letter J have been popular for over a century, owing largely to several superpopular J baby names for girls at the top of the list.
Josephine, the current most popular J name for girls, has been a US Top 500 girl name for as long as that’s been charted. Along with Josephine, J names for girls ranking in the US Top 200 are Julia, Jade, Jasmine, Jordyn, Juliana and Juliette, Josie, and Jocelyn.
Julia is the most popular girl name starting with J internationally, ranking in the Top 100 in The Netherlands, Spain, France, Sweden, Germany, Ireland, and Scotland, among others.
Jennifer and Jessica, of course, exchanged the Number 1 spot with one another for the last three decades of the 20th century.
Jane, too, has stayed popular for decades.
