- Comments and insights on the name Jamie: | Edit
I like this name a lot more for a boy than for a girl. I find it endearing as a male name, but a little too masculine for a girl. It's very popular on the British Isles.
I think your right it is more masculine. I'm a girl and I have this name but I get called James a lot. I have three brothers so..... I fit in.
