Jessica Given Name Meaning & History
GENDER: Feminine, USAGE: English, French, German, Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Italian, Spanish. PRONOUNCED: JES-i-kə (English), ZHE-SEE-KA (French), YE-see-ka (German). Origin Hebrew: Rich, God beholds. This name was first used in this form by Shakespeare in his play ‘The Merchant of Venice’ (1596), where it belongs to the daughter of Shylock. Shakespeare probably based it on the biblical name ISCAH, which would have been spelled Jescha in his time. It was not commonly used as a given name until the middle of the 20th century. Notable bearers include actresses Jessica Tandy (1909-1994) and Jessica Lange (1949-).
This fun-sounding name made its debut in Shakespeare’s play The Merchant of Venice. However, for many people, the name Jessica will forever be associated with the 80s when the name was the queen bee of the in-crowd for ten years as evidenced by the massive numbers of parents who named their daughters Jessica during that time. Hence the many celebrities who share the name like Jessica Biel, Jessica Simpson, Jessica Alba, and even Jessica Rabbit.
The name has waned in popularity along with another child of the 80s, Lindsay Lohan, but still remains in the top 100 (unlike Ms. Lohan). This name derives from the Hebrew “Iskah”, meaning “foresight, or being able to see the potential in the future”. Yiskah is the name of a daughter of Haran briefly mentioned in the Book of Genesis in the Bible. This name is also a female given name used for the oldest written record of the name with its current spelling is found as the name of a character in Shakespeare’s play “The Merchant of Venice”, where it belongs to the daughter of Shylock.
