"This is my two-year-old son's name. We obviously love it. We've not ever met another one, and it's a name that's quite hard to misspell or mispronounce. We also use the nickname Jazz on occasion (we call him Jaspertato too, but I imagine that one will disappear as he gets older. *hehe*)" Nov. 29, 2005:
"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." Jul. 6, 2005:
