"My son is Jameson Chase - he just turned 15. We love his name. People ask me what we call him for short and I say, "Jameson." He is a "Jameson" through and through.
Irish Whiskey? How do you know we aren't naming our boys after their father's named "James?" Or maybe even Jenna Jameson? :)" Jan. 7, 2019:

"This is my son's name and my only complaint is that now I am having a little girl and we are struggling to come up with a name that I love as much as Jameson. I get a ton of compliments on his name. I also like that it suited him as a newborn, suits him now as a toddler,and will grown well with him. I first heard the name in college and it struck me imediately because I thought it was a very dignified yet unique name that isn't too out there!" Apr. 13, 2010:
"This is our son's name and we love it! We've gotten a very good response from others and he likes his name a lot, too. We have only met a couple other Jamesons!" Jan. 11, 2007:
"We named our son Jameson and we love it. It's not too common, but we don't feel that it is too far out either. We liked the name because my father's name was James, but we wanted to give it a new twist. Now if we can just keep people from shortening his name as he gets older we'll be happy." Apr. 25, 2006:

"My name is Jameson I?m 12 stole my moms phone and the name is nothing special or bad. But it feels good to be unique. Just letting parents who want to know if Jameson is a good name they will start off by not liking being unique but will grow to respect it" Feb. 5, 2019:
