I love the name Jaime. But no one ever spells my name right, they always spell it like Jamie.

Actress Jaime Murray is a famous bearer.

'J'aime' actually means 'I like', not 'I love'. 'I love' would more along the lines of 'j'adore'.

You're right abou j'adore meaning I love. But the verb aimer CAN ALSO mean I love (Je t'aime means I love you).

Because me name is spelled Jaime, people always pronounced it like the Spanish male version, like on the first day of classes, or teasing me. My mom says that Jamie spells jammie as in jam-ee, and that Jaime is like jay-me. So that's her theory anyways. I like my name so that's all that matters.

But Jamie has been pronounced that way for centuries, and a with a single consonant following a vowel it would probably have a long 'a' sound; Jamie is a name with a lot of history pronounced Jamie, while Jaime until a generation ago was always a male Spanish name pronounced HY-may, so her 'theory' sounds more like personal preference to me.

My name is Jamie and I love my name but I wish my mother would have spelled it this way - Jaime - I like it better, to me it looks more feminine.

Jaime Pressley is the actress who plays the delightfully trashy Joy on "My Name Is Earl".

In my opinion, this name seems like it should be pronounced "jaym" instead of "jay-mee" due to the placement of the letter "i."

My name is Jaimeson after my father Jameson. He is called James and I'm called Jaime or JaiJai. When I was little I hated my name because kids used to make fun of me saying it was a boys name. Now I love it.

If you're intending to give this name to your daughter in this spelling, intending it to be from the French phrase j'aime, you should be aware that that phrase is actually pronounced something like "ZHEM". It's definitely not said anything like JAY-mee. [noted -ed]

Jaime - pronounced like this - is the name of my best guy friend. Because of him, I could never see this as a feminine name.
-- princessleia28  8/9/2007
I like the name but Jaime Pressley ruined it for me, however. But I still like the name.
-- aquaspirit96  9/6/2007
I do actually quite like this. It's definitely preferable to Jamesina if you're looking for a feminine form of James! However, you're then faced with the triple whammy of:

1. Sounds like Jamie, a boys' name
2. Looks like Jaime ("hy-may"), a Spanish boys' name
3. Seems to spell out "Jaym" - confusing.

Confusing though it is, I do think the spelling is pretty and I like the little link with "j'aime" - I love you. Maybe I would use this as a middle name if I wanted to name a girl after somebody called James.

It's bad enough to actually name a boy Jamie instead of James. Naming a girl Jaime is a terrible thing to do. It sounds like a nickname for James, and with this spelling, the logical thing for an English-speaker to do would be to pronounce it ''JAYM''. And heck, that would actually sound more mature. On the other hand, if people are stupid enough to think Faithe is pronounced ''FAY-thee'', they'll probably have no issue with this spelling. This name sounds a bit trashy, quite frankly. And, of course, this isn't pronounced ANYTHING like 'J'aime', and the concept of naming your kid something like that is very tacky anyway.

When I first saw this name I thought it was pronounced Jaym, I also thought the person with this name was male. I was appalled to find out a girl was named this and surprised about the pronunciation. This name, however pronounced, is EXTREMELY masculine in my opinion, and should never be used on a girl.

This is an ugly spelling of Jamie. Jaime looks like it should be pronounced JAYM, and it's a Spanish boys' name. The worst part is giving it in reference to the French j'aime. That makes the name sound extremely tacky and trashy.

I know a girl called Jaimee
I think it looks more feminine.
-- zoe x  10/22/2011
Actually, the true usage of Jaime is as a Spanish masculine name, pronounced HI-may. The people who use it as a feminine variant of Jamie are completely ignoring another culture's naming customs.
