On her birth certificate, school records, drivers' license (some day) and so on - her name is JESSICA. You can spell Jessy with a "y" if you like - Jesse is traditionally the masculine (aka Jesse James), and the "y" or "ie" is interchangable for girls. It's more in how you pronounce it than how you spell a nickname - it's how you SPELL given names that makes their lives hell on earth........and it's the ones who put y's everywhere but where they DON'T belong who are having self-identity issues and are foisting them off on their children! This, in my book, makes YOU perfectly normal! LOLUh-oh. My littlest girl is Jessica and we call her Jessy. I like it with the "y". I think it looks better than Jesse or Jessie. Does that make me lame? I am either way.

and there was another individual on the list whose last name was also "tart" - but the first name was not significant in making any kind of strange combination...........
