[Answer] What common girl’s name was invented by William Shakespeare?

We have looked all around the web to find the most relevant answer to your query: 

What common girl’s name was invented by William Shakespeare?

  • Jessica:The first recorded use of the name Jessica is in William Shakespeare’s 1596 play "The Merchant of Venice," where Jessica is the name of the daughter of Shylock, the moneylender. In a nod to Shylock and his daughter's Jewish identity, it is believed that Shakespeare created the name by anglicizing the spelling of the biblical Hebrew name “Iskah,” which was rendered “Jeska” in English Bibles at the time. Jessica was the top name for girls during the 1980s and 1990s, reigning supreme as the #1 U.S. girl’s name from 1985 to 1990 and from 1992 to 1995.
