"I have 5 children and always wanted to have children and have unique names for them. My first is Caidy, then Joey, then Jake. I spelled Caidy this way because it is unique. After Caidy, we decided and agreed we wanted the rest of the children's names to start with a J, so the last two, my daughter was named Jareh, I believe i invented this name? I can not find anywhere? I was in church and we were singing Jehova Jireh and i wrote down Jareh and in 2001 Jareh was born. The next year and we had a son and we named him Jace. We truly thought this was a very unique name and loved it. Jace is 14 now and still a not so common name. Jace is truly a blessing from above." Dec. 27, 2016:
"I named my baby Jace, he is now 7 month and when people ask me what's his name they often repeat it as Jason and I tell them no it's Jace. I live in Lebanon and still this name has not be heard so much. Especially the old people don't get the name right and sometimes is frustrating to have to repeat the name several times till they say it right. But I love it and it fits my baby boy." Oct. 25, 2016:
"I named my Son Jace back in Nov.2009. He is now 5. I still love the name. His full name is Jace Jonathan. I hear the name every now and then. It's a name that isn't popular. I have an older son who is 21 and his name is Joshua and a Daughter who is 18 and her name is Alyssa. They were both named popular names before I knew they were very popular. So it's nice to have a son with an unusual name! Our Jace was a surprise!!!" Jul. 25, 2015:
"My name is Jace, Rhymes with Ace. It was tough growing up with this very rare name (in those days). People very rarely got it correctly. It's much more popular these days and my wife named our son Jace. I think I may have been one of the first males to be named Jace -- That was back in 1958. My mother read lots of books and found that name when reading a Tales of the Texas Rangers -- one of the characters was named Jace Pearson. That's where she got my name. There was a radio show related to this Texas Ranger in the early 50's and then later on Television in the late 50's. Hope this is helpful." Jun. 24, 2015:
"I am due in March and I plan on naming my son Jace. I love it because it is cute for a baby yet masculine as well. After reading the comments on the confusion when it comes to spelling its making me second guess the name. My second choice for a name is Jack. I have a few months to get it sorted out tho" Nov. 19, 2014:
"My ten year old son is named Jace. We love it and he does too. I think the name came about two different ways and that explains the spelling difference. Sorry for Jason, or sort for the initials JC. I believe the latter is a western thing and the name is more popular in the western half of the US. Google Tales of the Texas Rangers, the main character's name was Jace." Aug. 4, 2014:
"It's a very beautiful name , unique and cool , a lot of people named their babies after the mortal instruments book . The name can be confused with. Chase or jacy but I don't care because it's one of the best and original names I've heard" Jul. 15, 2014:
"My daughter who was born in 2009 is named Jace. It's an old family name, after my mom's great grandfather whose given name was Jason but everyone called Jace. I liked it originally for a boy, but when I was pregnant my husband and I decided to name our baby Jace, before we even knew the gender. I love the name mostly because it is part of my family's history. Most people assume Jace is a boy until they meet her, or they mispronounce it as Jaycee (which drives me nuts). Her middle name is Anne (again, a family name), and I think the two names sound nice together. I have found that the name has become more "trendy" in the last couple of years, and I even had someone ask me if I named her after someone on Duck Dynasty. The answer was a resounding NO." Jan. 13, 2014:

I found the name in a baby book but just as a short form of 'Jason'. I had never met or heard of someone with that name. I absolutely love the name but am sad to see it becoming more popular. I've now heard it three times at work since my Jace was born." Feb. 23, 2013:
"We just found out we are having a boy and Jayce is going to be his name. I was just worried that people will call him Jaycee and not pronounce it correctly. But my husband and I love the name and thats all that matters." Nov. 4, 2011:
"My son is 4 years old and he is totally a Jace. Due to the fact that noone has ever heard it we do have to repeat it a lot, but he's old enough now that when he gets mispronounced he corrects it. Many compliments over the last 4 years and love that its not on the top baby name list." Jun. 4, 2011:
"I know people who want to name their son Jace after a character from a card game.

"My 10 month old son is named Jace. I love his name as well. The only downfall is that people often pronounce it as "Jacey" when they're reading it. And I'm always having to correct them when I pronounce it bc they think I'm saying "Chase". But who cares...I love it!" Jun. 30, 2010:

"My 7-yr-old cousin is named Jace Teagan. There's some confusion because my uncle (not his dad, though) is named Jason. Most people think his name is Chase/Jason and he corrects them very matter-of-factly. He's an awesome little kid - going to be a ladies man, haha. Handsome little dude. The name suits him perfectly, and he loves it! Never ran into anyone with the same name either, except for in the City of Bones teen book series." Apr. 23, 2010:
"My name is Jacy, and Jace is the short/nickname form. I'm in my 20s and when I was named it was not popular at all. But now I'm seeing more little boys named Jace around, it is amusing." Apr. 14, 2010:
"My name is Jacı and im from south africa think im do only one here who spells it like that.lol" Apr. 7, 2010:
"My name is Jace, I am 32 the only other person I knew with it, was a cartoon character from Space Ghost "Jan and Jace". I have only met one other person that was older than me that has the name. I also have a very rare last name, but it flows together well. People tell me it sounds like a football player's name or something that should be shouted out in the Roman Collesium or giant stadium. To the parents who are naming your kids this... You will be suprised by how many people don't know how to pronounce it. And prepare your kids for dissappointment. They won't be able to find any bike license plates with their name on it or anything else with their name on it for that matter. It is a great name, everyone likes it, it's a great conversation starter and ice breaker." Feb. 28, 2010:
"We named our son Jace in 2003. He is 6 and loves his name but say that people confuse it with Chase or short for Jason. We love his name and have never looked back. We've only met one boy who was 16 that shared his name. There is a book written by Tami Hoag in which Jace is a main character -- very good book as Jace is a hero!!" Feb. 25, 2010:
"This was the name of my beloved uncle, who was born in the 1920s, so it's older than most websites suggest. I think it's great that it has become popular." Jan. 30, 2010:

"I named my daughter Jace as her first name but had no idea it was masculine at all...I actually derived the name from Jacinda, keeping the Jac, dropping the inda and added the e, hence Jace became her name and she is now 13 years of age. Oh and had my son been a girl he would have been named Jace and he is now 17 years of age. I found the name Jacinda in an old old baby book and liked what the meaning beautidul) at least in that particular book.. I shortened the name and eventually my youngest daughter became the rightful owner of Jace. She is beautiful and everyone she meets loves her name...I love it too...and I love her more...her middle name is Kristy-Lynne." Sep. 9, 2008:

It took some convincing to his father and when I would tell random people they didn't seem to like it. This made me like it more. I think it's the best boys name on the planet.

When I was introduced to people when I as little they would always think it was short for Jason or was Chase, this would make me very mad and I would quickly correct them and spell it: J-A-C-E!

of me and my husband's name. My name is Grace and
my husband's name is Jame s. We didn't want a Jr.

"My son's name is Jace - we love it - obviously. We do get a lot of misspellings (Jayce, Jase), and I almost always have to spell it when I tell people his name, but it doesn't bother me. People want to call him Chaise, or think it's short for Jason. I told my husband we should name our next boy Chaison, that way we have a Jace and a Chaison - that's a joke though. Seriously, I think it's a beautiful boy name - unique, but not ridiculous. Solid, strong, and cute at the same time. :-) Jace Patrick is what we chose, and we all love it." Jun. 30, 2006:
