"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!)." Feb. 19, 2020:

"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." Mar. 29, 2010:
"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 southeast and every other Jamie she knows is a boy. As such she no longer likes the name." Dec. 21, 2009:
"I love the name Jamie! It's great on guys and reminds me of one of my friends ;)" Nov. 6, 2009:

-Jamie" Jul. 16, 2009:
"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." Jul. 3, 2009:

"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." Nov. 20, 2007:

"An all-time great. This is by rights a boy's name - let's reclaim it!" Sep. 12, 2007:
"this name rocks!! It should only be used for boys." Feb. 19, 2007:
"Hi ... we named our Baby, which was born January 28th 2006 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 April 2007 will be called "MACY" ... kind regards and the best wishes for you guys!!!" Feb. 11, 2007:
"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!" Dec. 23, 2006:
"We are thinking of using this name for our baby, but aren't sure whether to make it a nickname and actually call him James or Jameson." May. 1, 2006:

"I hear from mothers 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." Apr. 8, 2017:
"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." Jul. 11, 2014:
"people named Jamie are the most awesome people in the country. and make life worth living sometime." Dec. 26, 2007:
"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 =)" Sep. 2, 2007:

"This is a boy's name not a girls name. Parents please stop naming your daughter's boys names because there are so few good boys names left. Jamie will forever be known as a girls name, but we all know that it makes a way better boys name than girls!" Dec. 24, 2005:
