  • "We are naming our first son Jet (with one t) because it's masculine, strong and simple (his middle name will be my maiden name and his last name is really long so a short simple name was only the right thing to do!) Regardless of how you spell it, it's just a good, strong name!" Jul. 23, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my youngest son Jet, with one T. It's strong, simple, easy to spell and pronounce. He's the only Jet at his school, making it memorable. People never forget his name. The only complaint I would say about the name is that when he's introducing himself verbally, sometimes people have trouble hearing the T sound. They think it's Jed, Jeb, Jeff, Jack, etc. Just a little confusion and he always ends up having to say it two or three times." Aug. 4, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "My son is due a few months from now and we are going with the name Jett! He is Philipino/Japanese so I think it'll suit him perfectly! Nobody knows what we are going to name him, so I can't wait to hear people's thoughts etc." Jun. 2, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "My mother would have turned 95 this past February. Her middle name was Jett ; she lived to be 91 and was a very strong, driven, professional and a beautiful woman and mother. She liked her name and thought it was unique." Apr. 26, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "I named my son Jett, he is 8 months old now and I have never regretted it! I love the name because I think it sounds so masculine, strong, cool, and unique all at the same time. This name just suits him perfectly and we get compliments on it all the time!" May. 1, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am a 32 year old woman named Jett. People seem to love it. I didnt when I was a kid but I like it much better now." Feb. 1, 2012: Report as inappropriate

  • "My son is 2 months old and his name is Jett and the reason I named him Jett is because my husband is an avation mechanic for the navy and if it wasnt for getting stationed here I wouldn't have met him! and he works on jets so thats the story of my Baby Jett!!" Jun. 17, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named our son "Jett" in 2001. I was worried at first a little if he would be a quiet and slow person... He was quiet until about 3-1/2 years old but he turned out to be a very energetic active mind boy. He is a quick thinker and talker (very sociable), just like a jet airplane. I really think that Jett fits in his personality. It sounds less traditional and religious. Many people say it is a very cool name." May. 5, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "Named my son Jett... My name is Scott and I wanted him to have a part of me in his name. I love it." May. 5, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "My son is 10 months old, and his name is Jett! We lovvvve his name! We wanted a name that was short and started with a J, because we have a long last name that starts with a J. It fits him so well though. The only thing my husband and I worry about is if we have another boy one day....he'll probably be jealous of his older brothers "cool" name. The only downside is old people always think I say "Jack," so I really have to articulate when one asks his name. But other than that we love it :)" Feb. 5, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am a 41 year old woman named Jette. Growing up, no one could pronounce it (or were afraid to) when seeing it written. They always loved it when they heard it. Now, it seems like the general public is more aware of the name (maybe because more boys are named Jett or Jet) and people don't hesitate to try saying it. I've always liked the name, but do wonder what happens, at least subconsciously, when people see the name on a resume. Do they skip ahead to Jane or Jill, wondering what someone named Jette must be like? My parents thought it was both elegant and rock-n-roll. In Scandinavia, it's pronounced Yetta, which is the ending of Henrietta. When I think of the name Jette, I think of Denmark. When I think of the name Jett, I think it's cool, but also can't help but think of Jon Travolta's late son, and when I think of the name Jet, I think of an Asian male. Good luck with name choices!"

  • "My son was born in 2006. I wanted him to have a very strong yet not too common name. After brainstorming awhile I decided on the name Jett. He is the only kid in our neighborhood and at his school named Jett. He loves his name and all his friends thinks it's cool." Jun. 15, 2016: Report as inappropriate


  • "Grandson is named Jett and it suits him so well and he is the most precious 2yr old you'll ever find!!! Love the name and him, couldn't imagine him being anything but Jett and we get very good compliments on his name!!" Dec. 1, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "Husband liked the name Jet, but didn't like the spelling, so he used Jehtt to be different." Sep. 25, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named our Son Jett and love the name. He is also VERY strong, and a BIG boy, and we were both smaller babies. He is 13 weeks and already over 17lbs! He was lifting his head at 5days, just a tough tough little guy. As far as the name goes, we never anticipated people not "getting" the name. People will ask his name and we will say Jett, and they will respond most of the time with a question because they are unsure of what they heard, so they will question with "Jeff"? or "Jed"? So we have to say "Jett with 2 T's" to make it easier on people." Aug. 16, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I love this name for a girl. THe spelling "Jette" is lovely, too." May. 2, 2006: Report as inappropriate
