Why would anyone pronounce Jeremy as JER-mee? Do they like being teased?

Jeremy is not the way a friend of mine spells his name. His is spelled like this Jereme.

I like this name when pronounced with *three* syllables. I go batty when people call out JER-mee (or worse: GER-mee, as if the guy is some infectious leper); it makes my eyes twitch. *chuckles* But, hey, to each their own. If you like the shorter pronunciation... ((shrugs))

I love having this name and wouldn't dream of changing it. It's not too common which I also like.

It may mean 'God has uplifted', but the people I know named 'Jeremy' are not so well off. They are very nice boys, though, Some of them, anyhow.

I was going to going to have a brother named Jeremy but he didn't make it. So I treasure this name.

I like this name okay but it is so common I don't think I would call my child this. I like the sound and meaning, though. Interesting (or important) that the prophet Jeremiah's name meant this even though he had such a hard life.

I can never pronounce this name right. EVER! I always say germy, I don't mean it offesivly! It just comes out like that. I tried to say his name how everybody else says it, and I totally slaughtered it! It sounds bad when I pronounce it germy, but it sounds even worse when I try to say it right!

My boyfriend spells his name with a G instead of a J, so it's 'Geremy' (still pronounced JER-e-mee).

Jeremy Hillary Boob, PhD. is a character in the Beatles' fourth and only animated film, Yellow Submarine. Jeremy both helps and hinders the Beatles throughout their journey, and is a self-described "eminent physicist, polygot classicist, prize-winning botanist, hard-biting satirist, talented pianist, good dentist, too!" He only speaks in rhyme. His philosophy can be best described as, "So little time, so much to know!"

It is a nice name. It is making a comeback.

This is basically the 1980s version of Liam: a common, long-standing British name that became overly trendy in the U.S. There are worse names, but this is very dated, at least in North America.

When I was growing up, there was a kid down the street named Jeremy. We definitely called him Germ-y, but he and my brother were kind of pranksters. Just sayin'. People always want to know the derogatory nicknames on this site.

If you have a really sweet genuine kid, the name Jeremy shouldn't be a problem. If he turns out obnoxious or wild, be prepared for Germy and kids to thinking he is dirty and not want to come near him.
JW41926  7/1/2010
Such a gentle and sweet name. I like it.
Chrila96  8/20/2010
A little nerdy, but that's what I like about the name. Gives a real intelligent appearance.

This is my father's name, except he spells it Jeramie. I've always thought his spelling was unique, though he does often have problems with people spelling it crazy wrong. I like the spelling Jeremy too, but I'm partial to Jeramie.

I like the name Jeremy because it's different and original. I have only met 2 Jeremy's in my life, 1 of which is my boyfriend. I think to have a name like Jeremy, the surname has to fit perfectly with it. But, all in all, it is an awesome name :D

I love this name, but it takes a certain type of man to make it work. It's seen as a bit of a 'dorky' name, I understand, but I can just as easily picture a boy named Jeremy becoming popular at school. It's also the name of a family friend, so it sort of has a special meaning to me.

Jeremy Delle was a student at Richardson High School in Richardson, Texas. In January 1991, he shot himself in front of his English class. He is part of the inspiration for the Pearl Jam song, "Jeremy" (the other part being a kid that lead singer Eddie Vedder knew in middle school).

My husband's name is Jeremy. I personally think that if it is said correctly, it has too many syllables for a guy name (3).

This is my boyfriend's name. At first I thought it was a little nerdy or somewhat strange, but he gives the name a whole new meaning to me. My son will be Jeremy named after his daddy :)
