in America, it's definitely unisex (at one point it was in the top 100 for boys) but now it's much more popular on girls. so it goes, around here usually.

I don't like Jamie used as a name for a girl, either.

I was shocked when I first heard this was used for girls. Jamie is a one-hundred-percent boys' name in Britain.
