    To me, James will always be a boys name. I just can't picture it on a girl and I have strong aversions to most boys names turned girls names.

    I normally love hyphenated first names, but if you're determined to use James, I'd go with Sara James without the hyphenation.

    I knew a Barbara Josephine who was Bobbi Jo (no hyphen, though). She was named after both her grandmas. It was super cute and I can see the charm in that. I don't think that having a hyphen adds anything to a double fn, though.

    James is a boy's name. Sorry. I'm biased, though.

    Sara Jane is gorgeous and charming; I agree with previous posters. Or pick something with a unisex feel for the middle, like Jo.
