The name Jace can be for a girl or a boy and there are different ways to pronounce it. Some moms go with the one syllable Jace, rhymes with Chase, while others go with two syllables -- so it sounds like Jay-see.

The pronounciation Jay-see is mostly heard for girls.

There are quite a few ways to spell the name.


The name Jace is said to mean healer.

For a boy, spellings include Jace, Jase, and Jayce.

For girls, spellings include Jayce, Jayse, Jacy, Jacey, Jaycee, Jacee, and Jaicee.

CafeMom kaymarie1473 has a son named Jace and she wondered how others moms spelled and pronounced the name. The few that responded felt that Jace, rhymes with Chase, felt more like a boy's name.

In some ways, Jace, either for a boy or girl, feels like a nickname for a Jason or Jacinda. And I'm a huge fan of names like that -- something about them are sweet, a little unexpected, and not too different, but not too common.

Have you considered the names Jace or Jaycee for your son or daughter?
