My partners name is Jamie (so may be a bit biased) but he is honestly the most happiest and generous person you've met. The kind of person who makes cooks for his parents, cleans the house (and im talking vacuum, mop and dishes). Lots of energy and positivity - great fun to hang around.

I'm calling my baby boy Jamie - I'm Scottish and think it is a great name!

11/27/2023 10:32:36

Jamie is by far a boys name, In scotland and in the U.k you will find it to be much more likely to be a boys name rather than a girls.

I love the name for a boy. This is my husbands name. It's unique and fits him

11/01/2023 03:16:12

One of my sister's best friends from high school's name is Jamie. And, he's a real sweetheart. It'suits boys much better than girls, in my opinion. Especially, since it was actually used as a boy's name first, before crossing over to the girls later on.

10/10/2023 07:33:36

i was a veally troubled teenager and eventually ended up in a psychiatric hospital for my own safety. i broke every rule, just to break them and i wouldn't let any of the people who were trying to help me ght to know me. a few months in to my stay a young man named jamie entered the program. for some reason he could reach me when no one else could, he let me hold on to him long enough for the psychiatrist to help me out. It's been'ten years since i left and now jamie and i are maried and are having our first child. the name has so manny meaningful things atached to it

I love the name Jamie. Growing up in the north eastern part of the U.S. every Jamie I knew was a girl, and very feminine. I chose to name my first daughter Jamie. She liked it when she was little, but now we live in the'southe'st and every other Jamie she knows is a boy. As such she no longer likes the name.

08/13/2023 08:17:24

Horrible name it is my name and i am planning to legally change it. I am a man and this name has caused me much humilation. In kindergarten'there was a girl named jamie and the other kids said you have a girls name are you a girl. Then some people try to pronounce the name in spanish pronounced HI'mE and it annoys me. Its a great name if you want other kids to call your son a homosexual. Don't be cruel give your son a mans name.

Outlander, enough said, that book would make anyone want a son named Jamie!

Our son, 10-years old, is Jamie. His full name is Edward James D. Edward, after my now-deceased father, and James after his father's long-ago deceased brother. We thought it fitting to name him after family. But when he was born premature at 2 lbs., and he was admitted to the NICU, the nurses all referred to him as EDWARD; well it just seemed to be too BIG of a name. He was small, defenseless, gentle. Jamie, came in to play within the first few days, and it just stuck...It'stuck so well. He is SO Jamie, still. Gorgeous, sweet, sensitive, popular, a skate-boarding, long-haired, double-ear-pierced freak at 10!!! We were told by doctors that he would be blind and have cerebral palsy...but NOTHING. he's perfect, healthy, and our true blessing! Jamie Isn't a name for the bully in class. The name "Jamie" for boy is a true depiction of the kind of boy he is, and the kind of man he will become. Not a mama's boy...don't get me wrong. Just a loving child who has no qualms about yelling, "I love you, Mom", from the football field. May all of you have a Jamie! (And maybe the name has nothing to do with it...maybe my husband and I just have the perfect genes!) Sorry, I don't mean to sound pompous...I'm, we're, just thankful.

people named Jamie are the most awesome people in the country. and make life worth living sometime.

02/09/2023 02:20:20

Jamie is a great boy's name. Our new baby will be named James but we will usually call him Jamie. Don't like this name used for girls - anyway it is fast going out of fashion as a girl's name.

02/03/2023 09:05:34

Jamie is a fantastic name but on a girl. I am slightly biased as I'm a female Jamie but I love my name. It's unusual for a girl in UK to be called Jamie however I think It'suits a girl better.

01/24/2023 19:33:56

Jamie is a great name which works best for boys. Name your son "James" but call him "Jamie" - It's warm, friendly, glamorous and incredibly sexy. Please, no more girls called Jamie!

01/11/2023 03:52:46

I love this name to bits. All the Jamie's (all male) i've known have brought nothing but good into my life. I'm naming my son Jamie Robert.

01/10/2023 08:11:20

I hear from mothe's how "cute" Jamie sounds for a boy's name. Let me ask you, what if your boy Isn't going for cute❤️ What if your boy gets tired of having mail addressed to him as "Ms Jamie❤️" Consider also how often he'll hear, "But that's a girl's name!" from both kids AND adults. From an adult Jamie who has experienced all this: give your boy a solid masculine name. Or name them James, Jacob, or Jay and consider Jamie as a nickname.

01/06/2023 10:08:40

I love the name jamie its very sexy. I'm female i dated a guy named jamie and he was sexy.

Hi ... we named our Baby, which was born January 28th 2018 Jamie as well. We life in Vienna/Autria (Europe) and Jamie is quite unusual name here. But as we love England and the US, we decided to give our baby an "english/american" Name. Our daughter, which will be born in April2019 will be called "MACY" ... kind regards and the best wishes for you guys!!!

11/20/2022 07:50:52

11/05/2022 02:32:38

Aw thats lovely about your son called Jamie! Makes it even more special

10/19/2022 10:16:02

It can be either...when you are naming your child after the father (james)I love it because it is a distinct difference and you don't have to call the child jim, jI'my or little jI'my to make a distinction...we are using it for a girl it

10/15/2022 12:48:38

I'm James, but often called Jamie by my friends. I prefer Jamie - It's a great name for a boy, not so good for a girl.

10/15/2022 11:38:06

I think Jamie is better for a boy than a girl. It's old news for girls, but cool for guys. There are enough male Jamies that they shouldn't take too much guff for it. It's cute!

10/13/2022 17:54:10

I personally hate the name Jamie...of whic I have had the displeasure of having for 48 is bland and boring and derives from the name father's name and by the way I am female...

10/03/2022 12:47:58

my mates called jamie, i call him logan, he is the'supplater of the household

09/23/2022 14:27:20

My name is Jermaisseon. Within its letters, "Jamison" and "Jamie" can be found. I feel like a "hidden Jamie". I'm a guy BTW (in case you were wondering). I feel like people who are known as Jamie (whether legally named James or not) are good people who are capable of doing great things in life. Definitely recommend for a boy (let's stop using Jamie on girls, It's flat out WRONG!).

09/09/2022 03:40:00

This name was my grandmothe's and I always loved it. It's an older name now, but I think it just flows very beautifully. It reminds me of strong women and I love that.

07/02/2022 12:43:30

I live in England and my son born in 2003 was named Jamie. It is most definitely a boy's name here. Short for James, but a name on its own.

06/20/2022 13:24:54

We are thrilled that Hannah is the name of our first grandchild! She is blessed by God and so is her family.

06/19/2022 09:57:54

03/20/2022 05:17:06

i love the name jamie my husbands name is james and mine is Alexandra and my son will be born in a couple of weeks and his name will be Jamie Alexander

12/06/2021 09:44:24

My name is Jamie and I am a girl. I have met ten other Jamies in my life and all of them were boys. I think it is a very good name for a boy, but I am not a boy. I do not like my name very much mostly because me older brother named me Jamie because he wanted me to be a boy.

11/04/2021 22:51:54

its okay, just It'sounds more of a girls name, not a guys name, and so it would be embrassing to be a guy name Jamie(no offense). But it is a very cool name dont get me wrong =)

08/13/2021 19:15:00

Jamie is definitely a fantastic boy's name and always will be. It is fading for girls. In the UK Jamie is 98% male. For a boy, go for Jamie, but maybe as nickname for James (also fantastic).

07/12/2021 04:55:30

This is a cool name. It reminds me of poor Anne Frank.
