  • "This is my son's name. We love it because it's old-fashioned and traditional, yet it's also the name of a precious gem, so it has that new-age feeling too. Nobody mispronounces it, everyone has said they love it, and it has cool nicknames--Jazz, Jas, in addition to the sporty/serious/intelligent/classic/friendly sounding Jasper."
