I knew someone with this spelling and it was Jamie

FabioBigBangBlackHole Wed 17-Sep-08 10:17:57

I think like Jamie.

isnt just a daft way of spelling jamie? as in lee curtis?

I had a student called that and it was pronounced like Jamie.

The only Jaime I've known was a Chilean man. Pronounced (roughly) High-me (but with a more back-of-the-throat 'H').

The girl that used to wax my eyebrows was called this, it's said Jamie but spelt Jaime.

Ja-may as in Summer Heights High? SHH is a piss-take btw so I hope that is not how it is pronounced.

I was thinking 'high me' but have to make a call and ask for her and don't want to make a tit of myself.

Jay mee?

It is pronounced as "Jamie" as my dp's cousin's dd got that name.

There was one at school with me, was just pronounced like the version of James.

You don't. It's not a girl's name - it's a Hispanic (I think) boy's name - where it would (again I think) be pronounced something like Haim-e

I knew a girl called Jaime and she pronounced it Jamie.

DeJaVous Wed 17-Sep-08 10:21:37

The Jaime at my school was a girl

fleacircus Wed 17-Sep-08 10:22:40

TBH and possibly irrelevant but if you don't know how to pronounce it probably lots of other people don't either, so I wouldn't recommend using it - poor whippersnapper will spend their whole life saying "no, it's actually Jay-me" or whatever.

Jaime is a Spanish boy's name.

Hai (ask in Haiku or the glottal sound in Loch instead of the H sound ) + meh.

cupsoftea Wed 17-Sep-08 10:25:09

seems a usual girls & boys name to me?

DrNortherner Wed 17-Sep-08 10:25:26

No, she is definatley a girl. she signs her emails Miss Jaime xxxxxx

spicemonster Wed 17-Sep-08 10:26:20

It may be a spanish boy's name but Jaime Winstone is definitely a girl ...

ShowOfHands Wed 17-Sep-08 10:27:14

It's just jamie not spelt proper like. I know 2 of them.

foxytocin Wed 17-Sep-08 10:27:15

Then I fear her mum spelt 'Jamie' wrong when they registered her.

belgo Wed 17-Sep-08 10:28:23

ISn't there someone famous called Jaime? A singer or a model? I've heard of it, but wouldn't have a clue how to pronounce it.

ShowOfHands Wed 17-Sep-08 10:29:16

It's a legitimate spelling and a unisex name.
