Also, how would you spell it? Jae or Jaye? Like Mae or Faye (if you see what I mean!?)

peppermac Fri 28-Oct-16 02:10:10

Not sure what you're asking tbh. Boy or girl?

AmeliaJack Fri 28-Oct-16 02:10:40

For a boy or a girl?

Jae looks like Jai to me.

Jay is probably fine for both sexes.

Frunt49 Fri 28-Oct-16 02:11:17

Oh sorry! Basically Jay for a girl!

AmeliaJack Fri 28-Oct-16 02:15:06

Ah, in which case Jay or Jaye.

I think Jae looks a bit odd and would risk being pronounced Jai.

peppermac Fri 28-Oct-16 02:20:15

Jay then

FabFiveFreddie Fri 28-Oct-16 02:20:43

Sorry, no to both. Too contrived and unclear and yoonique

NotWeavingButDarning Fri 28-Oct-16 02:21:48

Not too keen on either really. Sorry.

Frunt49 Fri 28-Oct-16 02:24:43

It seems like Jay is the best then! Opinions on Jaylynn? smile I think that looks better as Jaelynn though? It's so hard!!

IamNotDarling Fri 28-Oct-16 02:39:05

Jaylynn? Do you live in the Deep South of the USA? If not, I don't think it really works.

I'm afraid that I can't think of any -lynn names without thinking off this film scene.


HappyCamel Fri 28-Oct-16 03:07:10

I'm in US Deep South. Jaylynn would absolutely fit in round here.

How about Jaqueline or Julieann or Jillian?

ImSoVeryTired Fri 28-Oct-16 03:16:11

Really don't like Jaylynn, or any spelling variant.
Jacqueline is ok. Jillian is very 50's/60's but ok.
Not keen on Julieann. Sounds like Julian so people will think boys name. Plus I am generally not fond of names that sound like 2 names shoved together.

Frunt49 Fri 28-Oct-16 03:17:36

I live in Chicago 😂

HappyCamel Fri 28-Oct-16 03:54:05

Frunt I think you could go with it then. It won't raise eyebrows over here the way it would back home. There's a kid I know called Fount. Absolutely anything goes!

Jay is fine as a nickname, but I can't see it as a stand alone, female name.

Jenna with the nickname Jay? Jennifer? Jane? Josephine? Jade? All could have Jay as a nickname. I know a Jennifer who goes by Jae (this spelling).

SmallBee Fri 28-Oct-16 06:16:32

I saw a programme the other week with someone called Jael on it ( pronounced Jail) so I guess if you go with Jaelynn it might be pronounced Jail-in whereas I'm assuming it's Jay-lyn? If you are keen on an e in there though you could go with Jaylynne?

stonygreysoil Fri 28-Oct-16 09:07:22

Jay (e) as a proper name doesn't work for me.Maybe a nickname, and you've got the whole universe of J names for girls to pick from.

SoMuchRoomForActivities Fri 28-Oct-16 10:35:56

No. Sounds and looks like a nickname. Plus they will have to spell and explain it endlessly throughout their life.

WuTangFlan Fri 28-Oct-16 10:38:49

Jaelynn sounds like jailing to me.

rainbowstardrops Fri 28-Oct-16 10:48:53

Jaelynn is ok I suppose. Jay is ok too but a bit plain.
Have you considered Jaya?

WeArePregnant11 Fri 28-Oct-16 11:18:47

JaeLynn or Jaelynne is very Southern US/Mormon imo. Jaydene/Jaydean as well, btw.

Why not just "Jay"? Or Jo?

MotherDuckSaid Fri 28-Oct-16 13:54:17

Its a bit of a non name tho IMO, more like a noise. There's not a great deal of substance to it.. As a woman I wouldn't want to be named tht, when there r sooo many other potential names to choose from

MotherDuckSaid Fri 28-Oct-16 13:55:16

Tho its not as bad as jaylynn 🙈

usual Fri 28-Oct-16 14:00:31

I know a girl an American girl called Jai. I think its short for Jamie though.

I like it.
