  • Nope, it's just a name. It really has no bearing anymore.

  • NO, it is disturbing to name a baby after a brand of beer though. I know someone who named their baby Samuel Adams, after the beer.

  • No why would it be bad? Isn't there a motorcycle guy named Jesse James? Anon 1206 I feel ya, one of my friends ALMOST named their kid Bud because it was conceived after they had drank a case of Budweiser. Thank god they had a girl.

  • I thought Jesse James was married to Sandra Bullock. He was on the apprentice too. We older moms may equate that name with the wild west outlaw, but some younger moms may think of the modern Jesse. To each their own. I have heard lots worse IMO

  • I think Jesse James is a cute name, it doesn't have to mean they are named "after" either of the famous Jesse James lol.

  • It's my great-grandpa's name. He is Jesse James Stone. Somewhere there is supposed to be relations to him...that is why he has the name.

  • "I know someone who named their baby Samuel Adams, after the beer. "

    LOLE! are you sure they didn't name him after samuel adams, the founding father? even if they didn't, the beer was named in his honor so the kid can claim in a round-about kind of way!

    i think jesse james is as good a combination of names as any other.
