    Thanks for sharing your opinions! I don't plan on using the name, a family friend had a baby girl about 6 months ago and named her James Maya. I did not like the name at first, but as little James is growing and showing her personality, i think her name really fits her in a unique way.

    Also, we call her JJ as a nickname and I think it's absolutely adorable!

    No. Not as a first name. No no no. But as a mn, i think it would be pretty. There is a trend going on right now with giving girls masculine mn's. I love the idea of Caroline James or Felicity James

    Please no.

    There are so many lovely proper girl's name out there, why the need to keep using solid boy's names like James?!

    As a middle name, it's OK for a girl, but not as a first name.

    Does this remind anyone else of the Anne of Green Gables books? Someone's name was Jamesina (nn Jimsie) after her deceased father, James. Now, I thought that was awesome, but James is just a little too far fetched for me.

    Can we please please please leave James for the boys? It's one of my favorite boy names and if it becomes a girl name it will never go back! I do kind of like the masculine middle name trend for girls, though. It seems spunky.
