Meaning:precious stone
Like Ruby, Diamond and Amber, Jade is a name that’s comfortable in a jewelry box. Best known for its green variety, this hard stone (which comes from the Spanish “piedra de la ijada,” meaning “stone of the side”) was once believed to have magical powers and protect against intestinal problems. TV chef Giada De Laurentiis couldn’t have cooked up a better name for her daughter, Jade Marie, born in 2008. (“Giada” is jade in Italian.) Think of Jade as the cool kid in class everyone wants to be friends with.
