I think there should probably be a Jai (1) and Jai (2) and one should be the name that originated in India and the other the one that originated in English speaking countries.

Jai is popular in Australia (top 100, previously) and there are rugby players Jai Field and Jai Arrow and actor Jai Courtney (all Australian). They don't seem to have any Indian roots. I think it is a name that exists independently in India and then in Australia and other English speaking countries.
This is unisex, and not Indian, Hindi or Tamil! This name has English origins, and pronounced like "JIE". This is also used in Australia, The UK and in the U.S too! This doesn't come from India! Anyways, I like this short, awesome name! P.S. I still don't think people in India use it, but if you are Indian and want to use this for your child, go ahead.
This name can also be a feminine name.

In the USA, it was given to 51 girls in 1998
In the UK, it was also given to 19 girls in 1998.
Jai in Hindi or Sanskrit means victory as a noun or can be used as an adjective. It's a name used in India. Don't quite know what the Australian version is...
Jai is a short name with a fantastic sound, JAY.
Every single Jai I have ever met has been awesome. Except for one. They sucked.
Sounds like the namer was mad.
I am perplexed at the use of Jai in English for the name I would spell Jay. The last letter is the same as the first letter of yoga and yantra. It is not the same as the first letter of Indra or Ishta. So why the "i".
Jai Courtney was a former Australian model and currently an actor.
Randy Pausch's widow, Jai, bears this name. In her case, the name is feminine and is pronounced like "JAY."
Jai Brooks is a member of an Australian youtube comedy group called the Janoskians. In his case it's pronounced JAY.
In French, "j'ai" means "I have".
Can be a girls name as well.
Jai (or Jay) means Victory in the Sanskrit language. I think of it now more of a English name. I live in Melbourne where I've heard that name too many times and everyone with the name was of Anglo descent.
Jai Rodriguez is an actor and the culture expert on the American television program Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.
I love this name. I know a couple of people with this name pronounced Jye.
I first came across this variant in the excellent novel "Olivia and Jai" by Rebecca Ryman. For a long time, I assumed it was pronounced "jye" (rhymes with "eye"). But then the authoress used a Hindu phrase I knew how to pronounce, in which "ai" sounded like "ay."
