Mamie Eisenhower, the former first lady.

This is my mother's name, I think it's very sweet and has an old-fashioned, yet not overdone, ring to it.

I think this is a sweet name.

It can also be a pet form of 'Mae'.

Hopelessly old-fashioned, infantile, and not even cute.

I adore Mamie as a nickname for Marianne.

This name would never be used in Scotland as 'Mamie' is an old Scots word for 'mother'. Think of the song 'ally bally, ally bally bee, sitting own yir mammies knee.'

Mamie (mah-mee) is the Hebrew word for Sweetie.

This name wouldn't be used in Ireland, since we call our mothers "mammy" instead of mummy/mommy.

Regarding the pronunciation listed by "Behindthename," I'd like to add that I've never heard it pronounced "Ma mee" or "Mah mee." In addition, other name websites I've checked have also pronounce "Mamie" as "May mee," long "a." [noted -ed]

Funny, I thought this was one of my sister's made up names. She named a stuffed animal this name. I just had to put this up there for no reason. I like it, it's a sweet name!

This is an irresistibly sweet nickname. A breath of fresh air from the Kaycees, Jacees, Jaydins, Braisons, and other atrocities. I had a Great Aunt who used it. Definitely something to keep fresh in my mind, if someday I decided upon a name which suited "Mamie."
It possesses an old-world classic charm, but is perfectly desirable in contemporary life.

This could be a nickname for Mabel as well.

It sounds like someone being maimed. To deprive of the use of some part of the body by wounding; to cripple. Maiming. May-mee, May-meeng. This would be good for a very large, at least somewhat ferocious-looking animal/pet. Mamie the Savannah (breed of cat). Mamie the pit bull (not that I have anything against pit bulls). Just not Mamie the shy little girl that wouldn't hurt a fly.

Sounds so old ladyish. My oldest great-grandmother, who died before I was born, was named Mamie. Can't picture it on a young girl.

Actress Mamie Van Doren (b. 1931).

Aw, there's so much hate on this name :( I think it's adorable and could definitely suit a little girl. There's just something so old fashioned and cute about Mamie, similar to Beatrice.

Meryl Streep's daughter Mary Willa goes by Mamie.

Too close to "maim me" for my likes.

Mamie is what a lot of children call their grandmothers here in Quebec, so I can't really picture it on someone young.

I've got mixed feelings on this name. As a French speaker, it's an odd name. 'Mamie' is what you call your grandmother, and the first thing that came into my mind when I heard the name. Now that I've heard the pronunciation, I kind of like it.

Pronounced like Jamie, but with an M, it is soo annoying being called Mammy!
Mamie  7/7/2014
My granddaughter was to call me Memaw but at 18 months old, she started calling me Mamie. Her name is Ally. When I looked up the origin of the name Mamie I found the song about Mamie and Ally. It kind of freaked me out but I love my new name and cherish it.

This is an unusual, cute, quirky and sweet name! :D.

My name is Mamie and for the past 24 years of my life, everyone loves it due to its originality. All my life I've gone as either "Mamie," "Mae," or "May" but most people prefer Mamie. I'm proud of it and I hope the name catches on!

The name Mamie was given to 22 girls born in the US in 2015.

Mamie is a name French children call their grandma by so personally I'd never use it.
