  • "In 1983 we named our son Jason Bradley Smith. When you marry a guy name Smith, you want the first name to be a little different and original instead of a John or Mike. I started to call him JB at the time when Dallas was on and JR Ewing was the man. But mostly we and his friends , still call him Jason or Jas ." Apr. 8, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "In the late 60's the name Jason was rare so was Jennifer. Before and during the Vietnam war the singer Donovan was popular to all the flower children, aka: me. His songs are about love and colors. I was having a baby and decided to name a girl after two of his songs. Jennifer Juniper and Celeste. If a boy it would be Jason Donovan. Named after the singer. I had a girl so the name was Jennifer Celeste. She was my only child. Now as an adult has two sons, the first Jason Donovan (my boy) the little on named after big brother Liam Donovan. Jason is a name that became famous in the late 60's early 70's. I thought the name was different and unique. Everyone else felt the same I guess!.." Feb. 18, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "i'm a jason. i like it. kids can't really find any nasty names that rhyme with jason to tease with. there are very few, rare alternate spellings, so you don't have to spell it when you introduce yourself. i did acquire a nickname, Chase, because a friend of mine used to call me Jas, rather than Jason, and someone else misheard him and thought he was saying Chase, not Jas. but i like Chase too, so it's cool. It is not too terribly common either, so, overall, i like being a Jason." Jul. 7, 2005: Report as inappropriate
