Jamie for boy vs. use it vs. don’t use it
Does Jamie sound like too much of a nickname to use for a boy on its own? James is a bit common and boring for us, and also our last name begins with S so we can’t really use it. Jamie is one name my husband really likes that we are considering - just don’t know if it is professional enough on its own.

I’ve never liked the name Jamie for a boy or a girl. James is very nice for a boy.
Jamie could be a nickname for James, Jeremy, and Jeremiah.
You could always go with Jameson/Jamison With the nickname Jamie. :)
I think it can work on it’s own, but just in case use a middle name that could also work for more "professional" setting and/or for an initial nickname (JB, JT, etc). I also like the suggestion of Jamie as a nickname for Jeremy/Jeremiah. I’ve also heard of it as a nickname for Benjamin.
Oh, I really like the suggestion of Jamie as a nickname for Benjamin.
My dad’s name is Jamie and he is a real estate agent in his 30s so I honestly don’t seen a professional problem with the name Jamie.
It works for Jamie Oliver (the chef) although I think outside of being a celebrity it’s best left as a nick name. You can use James with an "S" last name so long as you say it very clearly when you use the two together. James is much more professional and respectable than Jamie.
I have a cousin named Jamie. That’s his given name, not James.
Jamie is mostly used as a girls name version of James.
Don’t like Jamie for a boy or girl, why Jamie out of all the names? Benjamin "Jamie" is better at least he can go by Ben if he doesn’t like it
Thanks for the thoughts everyone. I am going to talk to my husband about using it as a nickname for Benjamin or Jeremiah since we can’t use James.
Jamie is a fine standalone name for a boy, it is not a girls version of James at all!
You dont need to use either of those, Jamie is fine as it is for a boy. Nicknames as first names are quite common now.
I would definitely not use Benjamin, he would always be called Ben not Jamie. Its fine as it is really.
If we used Benjamin I would always call him Jamie. Benjamin would just be for job applications to give him a non nickname to use. But I do like Jamie on its own too.
Jamie is much too minimalistic on its own. Jameson, Jamaal, Benjamin, Jeremiah, or Jeremy would all be good with the nn Jamie!
