I submitted Jessamy a while ago, and described it as a variant of Jessamine and an old word for jasmine, pronounced "JESS-uh-mee", which it is. It was put up pretty soon, then disappeared! The only remaining user-submitted Jessamy, last time I checked, is one which says it is a combination of Jess and Amy and pronounced that way. Which, fair enough, maybe there are one or two "Jess-Amy"s out there, but it's not the primary origin/usage of the name. If you look on Facebook, there's a group for the name Jessamy and the consensus there is that it comes from Jessamine/jasmine and rhymes with "sesame".
That said.... Thank you very much, Mike C, for all the work you put into this fabulous website, which is a really great resource. Sorry to be a complainer, just thought there may have been an arror somewhere (or maybe I'm missing something!). Your work is appreciated.
