Also of Norman usage.
Even though this name has a feminine form, I still think it sounds more soft than strong!
Aimé is the name of the prince who is the cousin and love interest of Princess Aimée in Madame d'Aulnoy's fairy tale The Bee and the Orange Tree.
"Aime" is the conjugated "je" form of the French word "aimer" which means "to like." Aime is pronounced ehm, or like the letter "m," and aimer is pronounced ehmay, or "m a".
Not very widespread. It's a common adjective ("loved"), which makes it different from most names which aren't used in any sentence. It's kinda lovely, though.
I had no idea there was a masculine form of "Amy". And I'm kind of surprised that it's not terribly popular.
