Jaz is a name for all genders, somewhat more commonly used for boys.
At least in the US, the name Jaz is extremely rare. Recently, only a handful of babies has been named Jaz each year. That means it’s extremely unlikely that a boy or girl called Jaz will meet someone with the same name. So, Jaz is a very special name!
Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter J is a very popular first letter for given names. That’s because 8.3% of all common first names in the US begin with this letter. Only the initial letter A is more common for first names.
With only three letters, the name Jaz is obviously very short. In fact, only 1.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly three letters. Just 0.2% of all first names are even shorter and only have two letters, while nearly 99% of all boys’ and girls’ names use more than three letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long. There are no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.
That means that if 8.3% of all first names start with a J, this initial letter occurs more than two times as often as all other letters on average.
If your name is Jaz and someone asks after your name, you can of course just tell them what it is. But sometimes that isn't so easy - what if it's too loud, and you don't understand them well? Or what if the other person is so far away that you can see them but not hear them? In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
So that everyone really understands you when you have to spell the name Jaz, you can simply say:
Braille is made up of dots, which the blind and visually impaired can feel to read words.

These flags are used for maritime communication - each flag represents a letter.
In the navy, sailors of two ships might wave flags to each other to send messages. A sailor holds two flags in specific positions to represent different letters.
In Morse code, letters and other characters are represented only by a series of short and long tones. For example, a short tone followed by a long tone stands for the letter A. Jaz sounds like this:
