Jessey is a gender-neutral name of Hebrew origin. More commonly anglicized as Jesse, it derives from the Hebrew name Yishai, which may mean “gift,” “king,” or “The Lord exists.” In the Old Testament, Jesse is the name of King David’s father. The phrase “root of Jesse” is used to refer to David’s family tree, so this name could be a tribute to the importance of family. Jessey may also be a shortened form of the Hebrew girl’s name Yiskah, anglicized as Jessica, meaning “God beholds” or “foresight.” Jessica is often shortened to Jess or Jessie, but Jessey is a less common variant that’s sure to help baby stand out from the crowd.
