Etymology & Historical Origin - Jace

Jace is basically a nickname for Jason which was originally derived from the Greek verb “iasthai” meaning ‘to heal.’ For more information on Jason, see Jason. As is often the case, like Max and Jack, nicknames form into independent given names in their own right. Jace is another example of this. Its modern popularity is probably also a result of the increased usage of a similarly sounding name: Chace.

Popularity of the Name Jace

The name Jace is used sparsely between the years 1956 and 1958 but then falls off the Top 1000 list of boy’s names altogether. It returns in 1979 around the time that Jason is experiencing its highest historical usage, so Jace once again becomes an appealing alternative to American parents. It’s a strong, no-nonsense name – basically a one-syllable version of Jason. There’s a certain ruggedness to the name Jace, so it’s not surprising that it ranks high in certain states: Idaho, North Dakota and South Dakota. It’s a Top 50 name in those states.
