I first came across this variant in the excellent novel "Olivia and Jai" by Rebecca Ryman. For a long time, I assumed it was pronounced "jye" (rhymes with "eye"). But then the authoress used a Hindu phrase I knew how to pronounce, in which "ai" sounded like "ay."

Jai (or Jay) means Victory in the Sanskrit language. I think of it now more of a English name. I live in Melbourne where I've heard that name too many times and everyone with the name was of Anglo descent.

I am perplexed at the use of Jai in English for the name I would spell Jay. The last letter is the same as the first letter of yoga and yantra. It is not the same as the first letter of Indra or Ishta. So why the "i".
