Everything parents have always loved about Jessica still applies. It's a delicately feminine name with Shakespearean heritage and a peppy nickname. It's an impeccable choice, but not one that will attract much notice '- Jessica's been so popular for so long it gets taken for granted. Less common lacy classics include Marina, Tabitha and Veronica.
