Jamie, Jaime, Jaimee, Jamee, Ja'mie, Jamey, Jaymie or Jaymee is a name derived as a pet form of James. However, it has been used as an independent given name in English speaking countries for several generations. Though Jamie was originally exclusively male, since the 1950s it has also been used as a female given name especially in Canada and the United States.
