  1. I love that his name is janeson it’s just a nice gentle sounding name but my daughters name is jade too so it’s jade and jameson such sounds good together ?

  2. I was watching Outlander and really liked the name, then I started hearing boys called Jamie and I thought it was cute. My mom and sister helped me with the middle name of Everett.

  3. I chose the name Jameson because my late fathers name is Jason, and my step dad who raised me, his name is James. So I always loved the name Jameson and I think it’s such a strong name for when he grows up. It was perfect for my son.

  4. My husband chose the name for our son he says he chose it cause it was a whiskey name as is mine

  5. I chose his name to be Jameson because his Grandfather’s middle name is James… so he is the last grandson from me so James-on…
