Do you think of Jaime/Jamie as more of a boys or girls name?

I love it on a boy. Not so much on a girl.

Jaime to me is a Spanish boy's name. I know it's a variant spelling of Jamie, but it doesn't work as Jamie for me personally.

I like Jamie, and I think it's one of the few "unisex" names that really does work on either gender. I don't know which one I like it on more.

Jaime is the girl spelling to me, and Jamie is boy. But I definitely prefer it on a boy.

Ditto the above. I can see Jamie on either gender but prefer it on a girl.

Personally, I see it as a male name, but acceptable for a female.

It's a nickname for James.

Jaime is a Spanish boy name. I don't pronounce it like Jamie.

Jamie, I think of as unisex. It's usually a female name if it's a full name, but it's also a male nickname for James. I prefer it on a boy and as a nickname.

I've only personally known girls named Jamie so I see it as kind of feminine although I think it works for a boy just as well.

Jamie is one of those names that I don't like on either gender.

I really like Jamie for a girl, but my brother-in-law is James and my sister calls him Jamie.

I think Jaime is more of a boy's name, and Jamie is more of a girls name.

We have James, nickname Jamie on our boy list but I think Jamie works for a girl too.

Actually, I think this is one of the few truly unisex names. I like it for both, but maybe slightly more for a boy.

I have a male cousin names Jamie, but have known far more girls named Jaime. I think it works more on a girl, probably because I've known so many.

Jamie is all boy to me. I only like it as a nickname to James.
