Personal experiences with the name Jaye: | Edit

My mom's name was Judith and she disliked always being one of many so she started going by the simple 'J'. People were constantly asking what the J stood for so she started spelling it out as Jaye. My husband and I gave it as a middle name to our daughter, Maya Jaye.
