Jesse

Is your baby the biggest gift of all? Then the name Jesse might be appropriate. Meaning “gift” in Hebrew, the biblical Jesse was the father of King David. While not as popular as it was back in its heyday of the 1880s, it’s still considered a strong and timeless moniker. And come on, who doesn’t want to be Jesse’s girl? (Insert groan here.)
