One Answer:

This name was first used in this form by Shakespeare in his play 'The Merchant of Venice' (1596). It only became popular in the 20th century.

the name Jessica really mean "he sees"

Another Answer:

From Latin Jesca > Greek Ieskha >Hebrew Yiskah

Probably means "confined".

but also, names don't always fit the person or their personality. like i know a jessica and you really can't only go by names, you know? there are some times when you really can't treasure that person. Because they could be a bad person. Im just saying.
