healer; the Lord is salvation
In Greek mythology, Jason led the Argonauts to sail in search of the Golden Fleece. (And along the way, he fell in love with a sorceress.) But in the New Testament, Jason is the name of one who showed hospitality to St. Paul. Though it never reached No. 1, Jason was a top 5 name from 1973 to 1982. According to Social Security data, it fell out of the top 50 in 2004 but remains solidly in the top 100. It helped pave the way for the popularity of Jacob and even Mason. Jayson is an alternative spelling that’s in the top 500.
