Jay Given Name Meaning & History
GENDER: Masculine, USAGE: English, PRONOUNCED: JAY. Short form of names beginning with the sound J, such as JAMES or JASON. It was originally used in America in honor of founding father John Jay (1749-1825), whose surname was derived from the jaybird. Origin English: Form of Jason, healer; German: Swift; Hindi: Victory, a bird; Sanskrit: Victorious. Originally a familiar form of names such as Jacob, James, and Jason, Jay is now a given name in its own right. This unisex name also refers to several species of a large family of birds.
Jay is used as a diminutive of names starting with J, mostly the name James. James is ultimately derived from Jacob. Jacob is derived from the Hebrew name ‘Yaakov’, which means ‘following after’. This is derived from the Hebrew words ‘Yahweh’, which means ‘God’, and ‘aqeb’, which means ‘heel’. In the Bible, Jacob was born after Esau, holding after Esau’s heel. — Jay developed a short form for any masculine name beginning with a J (James, Jason, Jacob) in the same tradition that Dee or Kay came to be. Today, this pet form has become an independently given name in its own right. The name was first used in the United States in honor of John Jay, one of the Founding Fathers and first Chief Justice (1745-1829). — Famous Jays: Jay Leno – talk show host, Jay Williams – basketball player, Jay Baruchel – actor, Jay Black – musician.
