Once upon a time Jagger was on my list but that was years ago. Recently I heard it again and I'm debating if I should add it back to my list. If it's pronounced (jay-gur) I kinda like it. Although I don't think that's how it's pronounced. But if it's pronounced like Mick Jagger (jag-ur) I'm really not a fan.
What's the correct way?
and what do you think of Jagger?

Well, Jay-gur and jag-ur sound exactly the same to me, so I'm not sure what you mean?
My opinion: no.I’m just trying to behave as I think a friend should behave. Granted, I haven’t had much practice.

I am pretty sure that Jagger would be pronounced like Mick Jagger (i.e., to rhyme with 'dagger'). Double letters usually indicate short vowel sounds, so I can't imagine anybody seeing Jagger and pronouncing it Jay-gur.
Additionally, I think it sounds like it's trying way too hard to be cool and rock-star-ish. Sorry.

Both ways are kind of the correct way to say it and it sounds exactly the same to me. But as for the using the name maybe in a middle spot yes as a first name not really fan.Pregnancy #1 Lost To MC 8/13
