"I'm Jesse and also a girl. It seems to be the consensus that people assume it's Jessica. I hate that as well. Only because that is not my name. Glad there are others. I like the name and I think it fits me well. Also I'm not a girly girl. Lol" Jun. 22, 2021:

"I really like this name for a boy or a girl! We are having our first baby and we decided to call our child Jesse whether it's a boy or a girl. We have since found out we are having a girl and we are still set on the name Jesse." Jun. 19, 2014:
"I'm a Jesse, I think it's a great name and thankfully not too popular, but not so rare as to be hard to remember. It is sexy on a girl or boy, and has a nice history. Like most names it comes and goes out of fashion. Jesse is the most traditional spelling, but I wish it was standardized. Most people will either guess between Jessie and Jesse. I like Jessy, or Jessi more phonetic options but then even more people would mispell my name.
I also hate it when I introduce myself as Jesse and then people call me Jessica! Why do people think that you don't know your own name?" Jan. 11, 2010:
"My daughter is Jesse and it so suits her. I think it's a great girls name for girls with a bit of attitide. Bt it really annoys me and her when she is introduced as Jesse and they automatically start calling her Jessica! What with that?" Mar. 21, 2009:
"Ooh i absolutely LOVE this name! and it happens to be my name :D It's not as popular as it used to be which is Great. I don't actually know any other girl named Jesse. Boys, sure. but girls, not so much. It's a great girl name for those who aren't really girly (and i suppose it works even if you are girly)" Oct. 14, 2007:
"Jesse is for males and females. Jessie is the female(only)form. Its a nice name for a girl, but I would go for the more popular Jessie for girls & I would go for the more popular Jesse if you're a boy. Goodbye from Jessica" Jan. 1, 2007:

"I am glad to have found my fellow lady Jesse's! I am proud of the spelling and although I constantly have to correct people and often get mail for Mr. Jesse. The few times I get comments they are always positive."That's Jesse, no I!"
Something I'm not so proud of but definitely have done: I'll include or exclude my feminine middle name on job applications depending on the industry. I generally get more calls back without it, outside of the helping professions." Jan. 10, 2021:
