"I like the name fixing to have a grandson with the name" Dec. 2, 2017:
"I named my son Jagger in 2014 because I loved the character Jagger on General Hospital and his daddy likes Mick Jagger. It is a sexy rocker name and it suits him perfectly. He loves it also and is proud of it; he actually learned to say his whole name before he was 2 years old. He also thinks he's a cowboy so it fits that part of his personality also. We get so many compliments on it everywhere we go. Before we named him, we researched the popularity because we wanted something more on the unique side. Now there is a Beverly Hills Housewife with a son on the show named Jagger which is the same age as my son and I'm sure that the name will gain more popularity." Jul. 25, 2017:
"Jagger means strong & loyal in Sanscrit, the mother of all Indian languages." Dec. 30, 2015:
"My son's name is Jagger and he was born in 1993. I was watching General Hospital at the time and Jagger Cates was one of the characters on the show and I loved it!" Sep. 2, 2015:
"My grandson is is named Jagger - deliberately after "Mick". Both parents grew up with his music and so did I. I agree that if you have that name you are automatically 'cool'. Jagger will turn 6 December 29th - born in 2008. So at the time, there weren't that many kids named Jagger and it was really hard to call a newborn 'Jagger' but he grew into his name and it TOTALLY suits him!!" Dec. 1, 2014:
"Me and my husband are expecting our second child December, 2014. His name will be Jagger Dean. I love this name. Almost didn't want to write a post about it because I am praying it doesn't become more popular! It's a name that definitely turns some heads! :)" Jul. 7, 2014:
"Named our son Jagger in 2012 as well. Did not have a named picked out and my husband walked in and said "what about Jagger"? The it was the middle so we game him mine which is Leigh and we spelled it that way too. I have had no negative comments about it." Jul. 3, 2014:
"We named our son Jagger in 2012. It is pronounced just like mick's last name. Fits him well as he is rough and tough and tears up everything like a hurricane." Jan. 24, 2014:
"We named our son Jager Antonio. We pronounce it as if it was spelled jagger. I love this name but people have been pronouncing it with a hard"A" like the word Ace. Either way I knew people might not say it correctly, but love the spelling the way we did. And no one we know has his name." Jan. 18, 2014:
"My first born child's name will be JAGER if a boy, and JAGGER if it's a girl. This name totally rocks for my future rock star." Aug. 11, 2012:
"We just named our little boy born two days ago, and like alot of the people here say it's got some different opinions when you first say it but then people tend to come back with how much they really like it.We love it and know he'll grow into it." Aug. 3, 2011:
"My name is Jagger and some people pronounce the a as in yams. People do think I was named after Mick Jagger. My friends in middle school are callin' me mick for short. I like my name and a lot of people thinks it's cool." Aug. 24, 2010:
"My sons name is Jaeger and it definitely fits his personality. We love it!" Aug. 20, 2008:
"I named my son Jagger. I am VERY happy with it! We did get alot of weird looks in the beginning suggesting "why are you naming your child that!" when I was pregnant with him but all have come to see it suits him perfectly! And dang it, its just a COOL name I think. We hear that all the time now." Jan. 4, 2008:
"This is my #1 choice for my son, if our baby-to-be is a boy. My husband is afraid it is too uncommon and wants to go with a Jeremy, or Montgomery, as if Monte is so common. I love it. I read it in a baby book and went gaga for it. Then, it finally donned on me that Mick's last name was Jagger, but also Antonio Sabato, Jr. played a "Jagger" on General Hospital. Rock star and sex symbol cool...By default, if your name is Jagger you are cool. People will automatically be tricked into believing it. It is just that suave and debonair. I prefer the spelling Jagger/Jager to Jaeger...there will always be those frat guys that will label him of Jaeggermeister. A really hot nickname could be Jag! How many people have such a cool name that they could go by Jagger or a shortened Jag? (Except for the Maxwell/Max guys, of course, as this is my first son's name...and maybe Quenton,/Quinn) I give it less than a decade to catch on and take off like a rocket! (Just as Cade did over the past 10 years)." Jun. 5, 2007:
"Easy to pronounce, but rarely used. Everyone loves it! You are either a Jagger or you aren't. Not all kids/men can pull off this name. It is a strong name for a strong man and spunky boys." Oct. 16, 2006:
"We spelled it Jager but pronounced as Jagger for our son. He died last year at the age of two. We loved the name and he was an awesome sweet, generous boy. People would often pronounce it like Yaeger which we didn't like." Dec. 22, 2005:
"I really like this name- it's original and assertive too. I knew a Jagger, and everyone knew him, too! Although I prefer the spelling "Jager" or "Jaegar"" Nov. 25, 2005:

"We named our son Jagger in 2003. We almost changed it a week later after after many negative comments. It seemed like anyone under the age of 30 LOVED it and anyone over 50 at the time had something negative to say. My son is now 14 and LOVES his name :) So NO, we didn't give in to peer pressure." Jan. 11, 2018:
"In 2001 I named my son Jagger Gabriel. He has been called Mick all his life by friends of mine. Although he was not named after Mick Jagger. The name fits him so well though. He is very much into music and will be a drummer in a rock band one day. When I named him there were not many people who have heard that as a first name." Apr. 11, 2015:
"My 7 month old son is named Jagger, and it is defiantly a hit with everyone we meet. Everyone says he'll be a rock star one day with his name and personality." Jul. 28, 2011:
"This is my all time favorite name! I want to name my first son this, but Im not pregnant nor married. I think my boyfriend is hoping I will start to like a new name by then lol" Oct. 1, 2010:
"I've been living with the name for 20 years. Although I now live in Denmark (where most people always pronounce it wrong the first time), I've always found it pretty nice to have a name that isn't too common. Another bad thing is how everyone seems to believe I'm named after Mick Jagger, which I am not.
However, most people think it's cool that I have such an unusual name, especially in a country where English is not the first language." Aug. 3, 2010:
"Although best-known as the surname of Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, as a first name it was recently chosen by American actress Soleil Moon Frye, of 'Punky Brewster' fame, and her actor husband Jason Goldberg for the second of their two children, Jagger Joseph Blue, although this one is a GIRL. Their first child, born in 2005, is also a girl, this time with the more feminine-sounding names of Poet Sienna Rose (Poet is actually a borrowing of the word 'poet' which indicates somebody writing poems)."
