Comments for the name Mayme

Comments for MAYME:

"Put the Blame on Mame" is the song sung by Rita Hayworth during her legendary striptease scene in the movie "Gilda" (1946). (It's worth youtube-ing!) Mame is a variant spelling of Mayme.

I would like this name much better if the homophone "maim" didn't mean "to mutilate, mangle, dismember", as in, "The explosion maimed him for life". In fact, the Middle English spelling of the word maim is "Mayme", which comes from the word "mayhem".

Still, I think this name is spunky, spirited and old-fashioned in a good way. May, Mamie and Amy would be sweet nicknames.
