Seems more like a young boys name than an adult man. Not a strong name to me. Prefer it for a girl.

Name is such a cool boy name. It's modern, fresh and cool. It's not just a newer version of James, it is actually an old Hebrew name so it has historical roots. These days simple adorable names will do for boys.

ashbee Says:


Jamie is so cute and handsome. I think of Jamie Dornan and Outlander's Jamie Fraser. I'd probably use James as the first or second name and Jamie as NN.
