Jason Name Meaning

English: probably a patronymic from James or any of various other personal names beginning with J-. Possibly also Greek: shortened and Americanized form of Iassonides, patronymic from the personal name Iason, which is derived from the Greek vocabulary word iasthai to ‘heal’. This was borne by a saint mentioned in St. Paul’s Epistle to the Romans, traditionally believed to have been martyred. In classical mythology this is the name (English Jason) of the leader of the Argonauts, who captured the Golden Fleece with the aid of Medea, daughter of the king of Colchis.
