"I was born in 1963 and named Jamie. I love it because it connects me to my family. My great grandfather and grandfather were both James. My grandfather?s only child was a girl so my Mom was named Jimmie. I didn?t know any other female Jamie?s until the Bionic Woman! People usually assume I?m male and frequently spell it Jaime." Jun. 23, 2019:
"I like my name Jamie, even though some people get confused because I'm a girl. I don't really know anyone else with the name, so it's nice to be unique." May. 16, 2019:
"I was born in 1979 as Jamie... love my name. Love the spelling. As I got older it was interesting to see how many people expected to see a male when they heard my name. Especially Hispanic friends were very confused with my name and I often got called Jaime. I would highly recommend my name. Strong female and male name." May. 26, 2018:
"My name is Jamie and everyone spells it wrong. It's spelt, Jamie not jaymee or Jaime. I like my name because I am a boy and it's Jamie." Dec. 20, 2017:
"I named my daughter Jamie Sabrina. If she didn't like the gender neutral name I gave her a very feminine middle name she could use. I wanted her to have advantages in life that a gender neutral name can provide, especially to women. She loves her name. She is almost 18 now (born 1999). Both my kids like their names, which I know is unusual as most people have some issue with their names, so I guess I did well. I'm disappointed it has become popular. I didn't know any female Jamie's ever until after having my daughter. My name isn't common (Janice) and I like that." Apr. 11, 2017:
"I am a girl and my name is Jami. My mother thought by spelling it this way would be unique. But I see Jami spelled like this a lot. So much for being unique haha. However I think the name is nearing extinction. Don't see many Jami (s) nowadays." Feb. 21, 2017:
"My daughters name is jaymee and she absolutely loves the name shes only 5 but in a a kindergarten class of 30 kids shes the only jaymee. I altered the spelling of jamie because I wanted a more feminine touch to it." Jun. 21, 2014:
"i love my name " Jamie " because it's my name , i'm named after my dad & my name doesn't describe my personality sooooooooo i'm very happy with my name.<3" May. 25, 2013:
"Wow! I'm glad I didn't read this when I was pregnant. I named my daughter Jamie (age 8 now). So many of you don't like it for your name:( I hope she always loves it. I think it's adorable!! And, I disagree about it not being feminine sounding. In my growing up days (the 70s/80s) I only knew girls named Jamie. I didn't know my first boy Jamie until college. It used to be way more common of a girls name. Be proud, Jamies!! Your name is adorable!!" May. 1, 2012:
"My name is Jaymee. I don't know anyone with it spelt that way... I like it! I think it's unique. I love looking at how people spell my name, so many mistakes like, 'Jamyee', or 'Jamee', it's funny. I like my name. :)" Oct. 8, 2010:

"My name is spelled "Jami" I really like it. It makes it more girly!" Jun. 9, 2009:
"my name is Jamie. I consider it to be just a girls name as it is the female equivalent of james. to me calling a boy jamie instead of james is like calling a girl justin instead of justine. retarded!" Jul. 22, 2008:
"I could have been named Jamie and I wish I was. I am a real tomboy and I have always wanted a name that sounds tough and stuff!" Oct. 28, 2007:

"whenever see my name they say it right. sometimes they spell it wrong. the correct way to say it is jay-me. i have met only 3 other jamie's in my life, 2 girls and 1 guy. i used to not have a lot of nicknames but now i have like jay, james, jamal, jame and some others, having this name is kind of kewl cuz it's different. but i still don't really like it..."

"My daughter's name is Jamie - it's feminine but strong, and we haven't met too many Jamies. Downside - lots of people misspell it and write "Jaime" which drives me nuts." May. 19, 2006:

"Spelling of my name is Jaimee. I respect other's opinions and views on the name, however, I strongly detest and hate the name. Always have. I am 22 years old and I wish my mother had never given me such a horrendous name. I've been mistaken for a boy from college professors for the name (just looking at the list of students in the class) and the meaning is just awful.
I am sorry if I have offended anyone with my comments for saying such things, but I really do not like it. My middle names, while they may seem fine to some people, I hate also because of family reasons. So, I feel like I am stuck with my name.
I have no understanding of why my mother would give me a boy's name, let alone with a name of that meaning. It does not exude strength or feminity. For me, it exudes neutrality, an absence or lack of an identity.
Again, I am sorry for my strong opinion of this name and any feelings hurt possibly in the process." Apr. 14, 2015:
"This is a way better boy's name. Why do parents always name their daughter a boys name?" Dec. 24, 2005:

"I was born in 1950. There weren't many Jamie's at all back then. I like Jamie, it seems to fit me. I do know what there was a surge of Jamie in the 70s because of the Bonoic Woman, Jamie Summers. I can now find keep chains at the service stations with my name.😀 I'm just wondering what in 1950 caused my grandmother my mom's mom. to name me Jamie. My middle name is Carol, the feminine of Carroll, my dad's grandfather. I wonder if there was a female actress or someone popular during that time I was named after. No James in my family." Oct. 14, 2019:
"I never had much quarrel with my name being Jamie. It feels feminine, ironically. I always thought Jamie didn't have the spice I'd want like Lillie and Dawn. Personality wise, I think I'm timid, yet determined to be better, and sort of a late bloomer.
I think the worst thing about my name was that I didn't have any other meaning besides "James" or "Supplanter". Like it couldn't be something by itself and had to be defined by someone else. Doesn't help that my dad's name is James and made sure my name was some kind of Jamie.
The song "Janie's got a gun", my friend thought it was "Jamie's got a gun, and she's on the run" so I thought that was cute.
My best friend gave me the nickname Jama. I've also been called Jams by a boyfriend. My siblings rarely call me Jamie and normally go for sis or sissy.
I've been mistaken on roll as James(my voice is really high so the teacher was quiet for a long moment). Mistook for Janie, Katie, and Jennie. Mostly because I say it fast when talking.
Jamie by itself, I like on guys more. But I wouldn't change my name because it's apart of me as a person, something I've always went by so its mine.
I always really liked my full name that had the pattern 5-letters, 6-letters, and 5-letters. 5 and 6 are my favorite/lucky numbers ironically. Also, Jamie Manns sounds and looks satisfying. My grief with the name only really came apparent for my brother whose name is normally feminine.
My best friend's name is Krista, but was going to be Jamie. My mom wanted to name my Christa, but named me Jamie." Jul. 2, 2019:
"I am 63 and was named Jamie after my dad, James.
I have never really liked it. At my older age
I am considering changing it.
My whole life I have never felt or believed I was pretty or as desirable as other females because my name took something away from me. Alot of discomfort in my life because of it.
I would like a very feminine, beautiful name like Arielle or Shoshahna." Jun. 22, 2018:
"Jamie seems to be the feminine spelling for James. Calling a boy Jamie, is like calling a boy Jessica when his name is Jesse. Like calling a girl Justin instead of Justine. There are more girls name Jamie than there are boys name Jamie Dec. 2014" Dec. 21, 2014:
"I have never really thought about my name until I had a daughter. So I went through this identity thing. I had never loved my name Jamie. And even more so within the past couple years, I've been considering changing it. Some people like it, but some people don't. I personally don't like the sound of it. Maybe it is my spiritual judgement, but I wish I had a stronger name, meaning more feminie or something cool. I often feel like an outsider with this name, like a creep, or like a blank person, but it might be due to my own judgemants about the name. I'm probably going to go through a name change soon, unless somehow I see the beauty in the name. I want to be an actress, and don't know if I can live with this name, but how can I die without it, if it's been stuck on me for the last 26 years? Oh yeah, and the meaning is ridiculous-supplanter, I mean not to stake an opinion, but unless you tell your child you're naming her from James from out of the bible, and tell her who James is all about, then don't name your child Jamie. A supplanter means substitute. Someone told me substitutes are good too. I named my daughter Arabella after a few months of deep thought, from after having her, something far different than from my name. I will probably change my name to Rayna or something else. I always get the name spelled wrong! Jaime is common. I can't stand it, because I have an ethnic last name, so there is a good chance someone will call me the male equivalent Hi-Me, which is really embarrasing in class. The name lacks confidence. So, unless you teach your child confidence and know why you're naming her the name, please do not. I have met a very confident, nice Jamie, who has a very open personality. And like someone said in the comments above, all Jamie's are different. And this is all just my opinion. My mom said she felt my name was Jamie. But if you have an ethnic last name, your child will often get called Jaime, as in Hi-Me off the role sheet, and in other circumstances, like going to Starbucks." Nov. 19, 2011:
"I'm a girl with such name Jamie infront too. I think it sounds more for a girl name no matter how we spell it. But there're boys with such name too. I not really like this for a boy name either. It is better to be james or jay enough for a boy actually. But I'm lucky that my full name is Jamieclarabelle. Normally people will prefer to call me bella or clara." Mar. 25, 2011:
"I am 33 yrs old and have NEVER liked my name. I feel it is very tom-boyish. It is always spelled wrong. People think Im saying Janie. I would love to change it.
Nicknames: Jame(most popular), Jamers & J
I would NOT name a girl Jamie or any version of it." Apr. 5, 2010:
"My name is Jamie. I never get it misspelled. I never really liked my name I felt that it was too unisex but lately I've been growing into it. I like that there aren't that many around that are my age. And that there isn't a set stereotype for Jamie's we're all different!" Mar. 22, 2009:
"I like it spelled "Jaymi" better. Jamie looks too much like James." Jan. 18, 2009:
"This is my name. I've gone back and forth on liking it through the years. It's common enough that people have heard it, but not so common that I know many other Jamies. The spelling thing isn't usually a big issue, although there are a lot of people who insist on spelling my name as Jaime no matter how long they've known me, and of course that is annoying. I like it because I am named after my father, James, but I don't like that it is a gender-neutral name... as a child especially, I always wished that my name were more feminine. Also, the name derives from James, which derives from Jacob, which literally means "cheater," so I've never been a big fan of that. Personally, I wouldn't name a child Jamie, but that's just me." Aug. 5, 2008:
"For some reason the name Jamie always had a nice ring to it i have always liked it no matter what but not for being a tomboy well bye" Feb. 9, 2008:
"this is my sisters name, i think it is supose to mean strong or something, i also think that Jamie is the way it is supose to be spelled for a boy and Jaime is for a girl, but Jamie became the so common way to spell it that that is the way most girls with that name spell it. i think it is a great name, very pretty." Aug. 5, 2007:
"my name is jamie and people often ask me how to spell it either jaime or jiame" Feb. 25, 2007:
"It's my name and i do like it, however people always spell it wrong. Jaime not the actual spelling Jamie.
I just don't like that it is a english nickname for James, but James means strong so i guess that's good being a girl in this day and age." Jan. 25, 2007:
"I used to hate my name when I was younger because I knew a boy named Jamie and I always sort of tied it in with being unfeminine...but I'm 18 now and as I grew into being a young woman and more sure about who I was, I've grown to love my name." Sep. 23, 2006:
"jamie should only be spelled j-a-m-i-e because 'jaime' is like 'jyme....its not a pretty name 4 a girl..." Aug. 30, 2006:
"Jamie is my name and almost everybody spells it wrong. People always spell it Jaimie or Jaime or Jayme OR Jaymee. I can't believe that barely anybody spells it Jamie! I have met one other Jamie in my life. She spells her name Jaymee." Apr. 21, 2006:
"My name is Jamie and I like it a lot. It is pretty unusual now in 2006 so I am glad that I don't meet many people with the same name." Apr. 19, 2006:
"My name is spelled Jaymie and i don't know meny people who spell it that way. I love my name but people always think when i say jaymie that it is spelled Jamie. I hate that. And you can never find anything with your name on it. U have to order it." Mar. 31, 2006:
"I like my name, but as an adult I think it's too informal. It sounds like a nickname." Jul. 28, 2005:
