Jayce – Scary Mommy


This is a modern standalone name that may have been invented as a short form of Jason (which means “to heal”). Then somebody stuck a Y in there because people love names with Y in the middle — Cayden, Brayden, Jayden — and BAM. You’ve got Jayce, both trendy and traditional.



Famous people named Jayce:

Actor Jayce Bartok; musicians Jayce Lewis and Jayce Landberg.

Fun fact:

Back in 1985, for one season only, there was a cartoon called “Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors” in which Jayce and his crew were pitted against evil plant-creatures called the Monster Minds.
