Comments for JEAN-MARIE:

Used this as a middle name for my oldest daughter; it was a combination of both of her grandmother's middle names.

I've only ever seen this used as a female name, but I've always thought it a little ornate and tacky.

This sounds more feminine then masculine to me.

A famous bearer is Jean-Marie Le Pen. He is a French politician and founder and president of the Front National party.

This is also a feminine name. A main character (female) in Up from Jericho Tel by E L Konigsburg is named Jeanmarie Troxell.

Saint Jean Marie Baptiste Vianney (1786 - August 4, 1859) was a French parish priest who became a Catholic saint and the patron saint of parish priests.

There is nothing feminine, ornate, or tacky about this name if you are French. I may use it for a daughter, but I don't mind giving a girl a boy's name in the right situation. If I used it, it would be for my parents, John and Mary.

I have seen feminine forms of this: Jeannemarie and Jeanne-Marie.

I like this as a female name, but definitely not as a male one!

Jean-Marie is definitely a male name and NOT a female name. The first part of a compound name is the indicator to the sex. Jean = male, Jeanne = female (as in Jeanne-Marie). Probably the closest female version would be Marie-Jean.

My first name is actually Jean-Marie, I am male and I love the name. However, I was ridiculed for it in school (not too bad though), most of my mail is addressed to Ms/Mrs. Jean-Marie, and occasionally I have to educate people about the reasons why Jean-Marie is not a girl's name. Also, living in an English speaking country doesn't make it easier. John seems to be an acceptable choice.

Other than that it is an unique name with a nice sound to it. Its meaning, God is gracious and bitter, is quite special and gets you thinking.

I'd understand if this name eventually dies out. However, this would be very unfortunate. I encourage parents to consider this name and research more about it. It is a beautiful name and gets a lot of compliments (once the cruelty of teenage years are over).

Sounds like a girls' name to me. I don't like it.
