Jason comes from the Greek name ‘Iason’, borne by mythological hero and leader of the Argonauts, who sailed to Colchis to discover the golden fleece. Jason of the Argonauts fell in love with sorceress Medea during this adventure, but was later killed by a falling timber beam from his ship the Argo. The name comes from the Greek word ‘iasthai’, ‘to heal’. Namesakes include Jason Donovan (performer) and Jason Priestley (actor).
