Is it a legit spelling or not?

DP put it forward as a suggestion, my response was "errrr.... NO".
My reason - it's a made up name.

His argument - All names were made up originally.

All that aside, I don't like it anyway.

Jayson is not legit.

I think you'll find this has already been done ... from memory, people were adamant that they preferred the traditional spelling

We have it as a middle name, after his uncle, but spelt Jason. Not a fan of the made up spelling either


That's what I thought, Jason I don't mind although I think there's names out there that I like more, but Jayson I'm sure is just DP being Creative.

Superfluous Y is superfluous.

My adult cousin's name is Jayson. Pretty sure they just chucked the Y in there for creativity.

Hi there,

One of my managers at work is a Jayson, suits him!  Although he says it's annoying always having to spell out, but I'd say for middle names they aren't used as often....  so if you both like it why not.

I wouldn't do it, the judgement factor will be too big.

EB is not the arbiter of legit spelling.  There is nothing wrong with this spelling IMO, though I much prefer the Jason spelling.   This poor old name has been flogged to death but it may recover in time.
I actually always and still do prefer Justin, not that that has any relevance original.gif

I have seen Jayson quite a few times, is not a unique spelling.
However Jason is a name with one main spelling  - and I would stick to using it like that.

It reminds me of a cleaning product called Jaysol.
If you like it though who cares.

I'm with you OP. your DH is being kreative.... Don't mind Jason though....

#14 Feral Grey Mare

A bit too conventional isn't it? Should be Jhayson at least.......

Posted 07 January 2013 - 02:21 PM

My friend has spelt her sons name that way at first I was like wth but after a while it grew on me the baby in question is about 10 months old.

Entirely up to you OP good luck picking names if you decided to go against it  :-).

Jason is ok, this spelling only

#17 Guest_Sunnycat_*

Posted 07 January 2013 - 02:26 PM

I think the normal spelling is Jason, but I don't see Jayson as too controversial. If it was Jhaaysun on the other hand....

Names evolve and this spelling has been used for quite some time, the best IT guy at work is a Jayson and he is getting up there in age. I'm usually not a fan of superfluous Y's but I prefer Jayson over Jason.

My stepsons name is Jayson, and he is 21 years old... not a new spelling, or that unusual really  shrug.gif

#20 Propaganda

I think it looks like a pretty pointless addition to an otherwise normal name.

It makes it look more like "Jay's son" than Jason.

#21 la di dah

I prefer Jason but I don't really "get" the appeal of Jayson anyway. I'd be likelier to pick a less common J name that sounds different, than one that sounds the same but is spelt different.

I'm inexplicably fond of Jabez, (pr. jay-bez) which almost no one likes as much as I do.

Jason itself has the Greek myth connections which I like. Technically, Iason is as legit as Jason. Ancient Greek not being big on the letter J.

I'm going to get flamed, but I'm going to say it. It's bogan paradise, and it's awful.

"Jason" or a completely different name.

#23 surprizzzed

Posted 07 January 2013 - 07:54 PM

I like it because I like Jay for short. Not sure what Jay is usually short for or if it's a name in its own right.
Even if Jayson isn't a traditional spelling I don't mind a variation on a traditional name sometimes.

#24 Imaginary friend

Posted 07 January 2013 - 08:51 PM

Jay is often a name in its own right.^^
