Sweet name, really soft, feminine also, so it's not bad. Uncommon, not used much. Maybe good nickname for Mary or Marie. However, Mamie is good name as a first name, middle name or nickname, doesn't matter, because Mamie has quality.
In 2018, 83 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Mamie who is registered female with the Social Security Administration. It is the 1, 189th most common female first name for living U.S. citizens.
Sounds like something you call your grandma. No thanks.
Mamie is a name French children call their grandma by so personally I'd never use it.
Mamie Smith was an American vaudeville singer, dancer, pianist and actress.
The name Mamie was given to 22 girls born in the US in 2015.
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!
This is an unusual, cute, quirky and sweet name! :D.
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.
Pronounced like Jamie, but with an M, it is soo annoying being called Mammy!
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.
Mamie is what a lot of children call their grandmothers here in Quebec, so I can't really picture it on someone young.
Too close to "maim me" for my likes.
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.
Actress Mamie Van Doren (b. 1931).
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.
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.
You seem to have more against a girl named Mamie than a pit bull. I don't have anything against pit bulls either, I just thought that was somewhat ironic.
This could be a nickname for Mabel as well.
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.
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!
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]
This name wouldn't be used in Ireland, since we call our mothers "mammy" instead of mummy/mommy.
Mamie (mah-mee) is the Hebrew word for Sweetie.
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.'
I adore Mamie as a nickname for Marianne.
Hopelessly old-fashioned, infantile, and not even cute.
It can also be a pet form of 'Mae'.
I think this is a sweet name.
This is my mother's name, I think it's very sweet and has an old-fashioned, yet not overdone, ring to it.
Mamie Eisenhower, the former first lady.
