ORIGIN AND HISTORY

The name Jason is of Greek origin (Iason), and probably comes from the Greek word iasthai, which means ‘to heal’. In Greek legend, the name Jason can be found in the legend of Jason and the Argonauts; Jason was the lead warrior in the group.

The name Jason also appears in the Bible as the man who is a host to St. Paul, although it is perhaps a variant of the name Joshua.

POPULARITY

Jason was first used by English speakers in the 17th century because the name appeared in the Bible. The name started to become very popular in the 1970’s in the U.S. and has remained a popular name in North America. [1]


Currently,the name is most popular in the U.S., Australia and Canada, where it remains in the top 100 baby names each year. It is also used in other English-speaking countries, but remains most popular in North America and Australia. [1]

FACTS

Perhaps the most famous of all Jason's is Jason of the Argonauts, a Greek legendary warrior. Jason assembled a group of warriors called the Argonauts and they sailed on a ship called the Argo to many different islands. They were warriors and they were also off doing good deeds, like repopulating an island that purportedly only had women living on it any more. All these good deeds, as well as the heroic journey they made, left the group (and Jason at the helm of it) as legends in Greek culture.

The story has been made into a few movies, video games, plays and even songs. Jason is also a famous cartoon character who turned into the character Robin; the character was immortalized as Robin, Batman’s sidekick.
