My Name Is….
Nicknames: Jory, Peaches, Kiddo, J
Popularity: According to this, Jordan was the 65th most popular name the year I was born, but the 384th most popular name for females, specifically
Origin: Ancient times, believed to have originated relative to the Jordan River in the Middle East. Also has Biblical significance, in that the Jordan River is where John the Baptist baptized Jesus
Meaning: Derived from Hebrew and Arabic words meaning to descend, or flow down
Sex: Was originally masculine, but has become incredibly popular for feminine names in recent years
What I love about my name: I have always really liked the idea of boy's names for girls, so I like that I have a name that is often considered to be a boy's name. It's a nice, strong sounding name. And I like the cadence of it with my last name, too. It just sounds nice.
What I hate about my name: People often think I am a boy before they meet me. I get a lot of mail addressed to "Mr." It's not a very unique name or spelling anymore. When I was growing up, there were four people named Jordan on my swim team alone, and only one of them was a boy.
