As rare and precious as a gemstone, it may come as no surprise to learn that Jaida, a gender-neutral name of English origin, means "precious green stone." The name is a variant of the more common Jade, after the beautiful green mineral so popular in jewelry and art. Jaida also has Greek origins, deriving from the Spanish piedra de la [h]ijada, meaning "stone of the colic," which comes from a time when this stone was believed to have medicinal properties. These meanings give Jaida a glitzy yet down-to-earth feel and will remind baby of the ornament they are.
