I love this name for girl. If we have a girl her name is going to be Anorah Jaymes. I think it sounds beautiful.
good name

This is a good name. There are lots of different nicknames to change it up. My boyfriend is James Timothy. but he goes by jim james, jimmy, jt. and a few others. I think a name that you can shorten in many different ways is a good things. Its a good solid name.

To me, James sounds like a british chauffeur..."home, James".

James Paul McCartney is one of the most influential musical geniuses in history...I love this name. James is so strong but sweet; a little boy named James looks so cutely noble, and a man named James seems gentle but firm. Very lovely.
Love it

James is beautiful, simple and strong. I love it. It's my father's of the BEST men I have ever known. I also Have a close friend named James who is wonderful. Don't blame the name James for the poor behaviour of one Jerk!

I dislike how the names like the ones I've picked are being taken by girls.
Dakota, Addison, Akira, and Taylor have all been turned into girl's names and are now "feminine" or "girly" names for boys. But they were ORIGINALLY names for boys. It really bugs me. I wish names like those and Reed, my step mom's name, had just stayed boy's names.

I really like this name for a little girl. I don't like the name Jamie for girls though. I want to name my little girl Lola-James. I think Lola is a flirt uber girlie name that is balanced with James. I am from the south and I guess this is just something that we do with double names. Like Sarah-Gordan, really girlie and boy. I think this makes for a very cute cheeky girlie name.
Jimmy Greg...

My brother's name is James, but he goes by Jimmy... His full name is James Gregory, Gregory after my daddy... A lot of my aunts call him Jimmy Greg, and other people call him Jimbo, Jim-Jam, and Jim! Great and timeless name!

I have thought a lot about naming my future son James after my granddad, and going by Jaime/Jayme. I hate Jamie for a girl. Or I may just use Lucas James or James Lucas being after him but the name would be Lucas.
Love the Name

I love this name. It is also a family name on my husbands side of the family and now that we are having our first son we are going to name him James Edward(but spell it Jaymez) something different.Both are family names.
This is my nephew's name

When my brother told everyone they were naming their baby James, i wasn't too excited about it. The name is becoming way too common now :(
