Comments for JAI:

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.
