Your opinion?

I actually know someone named this. He pronounces it just like “[name]Jameson[/name]” ([name]JAY[/name]-miss-son to my ears) but it seems to confuse people, who tend to say “[name]Jay[/name]-mee-son” upon first reading it. And people do constantly misspell it. Personally, I’d omit the “i”.

It’s a great name. If you’re going for “[name]Jay[/name]-mee-son”, it will probably be mispronounced 98% of the time. If you’re going for “[name]Jay[/name]-miss-son”, then I’d spell it [name]Jameson[/name], otherwise he’ll be correcting the spelling all his life.

I know a girl with this name. She spells it [name]Jameson[/name] and says [name]JAY[/name]-mis-son. If you’re going for [name]JAY[/name]-mee-son, then I don’t like it. The sound is weird. If you’re going for [name]JAY[/name]-mis-son, then I would spell it [name]Jameson[/name], and I like [name]Jameson[/name].

I love [name]Jamison[/name]/[name]Jameson[/name]! It’s cute, especially, I think, for girls. To me it feels to “little boy” for a grown man, and would prefer [name]James[/name], but on a girl I think it should age well. Nope, there is no method to my madness- it kind of just sits there, haha. I don’t know if [name]Jamieson[/name] is quite right though, I might try to pronounce it [name]Jay[/name]-mee-son, but then that sounds wrong. I’d stick with one or the other vowel.

As a note, I pronounce it [name]Jay[/name]-mih-son rather than [name]Jay[/name]-mis-son. It’s minute, but I think it kind of makes a big difference.

[name]LOVE[/name] it! I prefer [name]Jameson[/name]/[name]Jamison[/name] to [name]Jamieson[/name], only because I keep trying to say [name]Jamie[/name]-son not [name]JAME[/name]-iss-on. I think [name]Jameson[/name] is adorable, though, and one of the -son names that seems to be able to stay away from having a trendy vibe (unlike [name]Mason[/name], [name]Grayson[/name], [name]Jackson[/name], etc.). I really love the nn [name]Jamie[/name], too.

I’d assume dad’s name was [name]Jamie[/name] because of the spelling

“I” or not, I’d pronounce it jay-muh-sun

It’s just not my style, but it could work fine.

I’d pronounce it [name]Jay[/name]-mee-son, so it’s not appealing to me.

I like it, but have the same issue as others–I think of it as [name]Jay[/name]-mee-son. If that’s what you’re going for… Not sure if I like it so much.

If you’re going for [name]Jay[/name]-muh-son, drop the “i” or the “e”. Though I like the pronunciation, “[name]Jameson[/name]” always bothers me because I think of [name]Jenna[/name] [name]Jameson[/name]–one of the most famous porn stars in history. So I prefer “[name]Jamison[/name]”.

I [name]LOVE[/name] IT! My daughter’s name is [name]Jamieson[/name] and I (and she) get so many complements on it!
Her full name is [name]Jamieson[/name] [name]Marie[/name], and I chose the ‘ie’ to coordinate in both names. (Plus, I think it looks a little more feminine)
She doesn’t seem to have any problems with misspelling or mispronouncing so far, and people have tried to call her ‘[name]Jamie[/name]’ a few times and she quickly corrects them :slight_smile: (She is only 6).
We do pronounce it [name]Jay[/name]-MUS-son.

I thought of [name]Jameson[/name] Irish Whiskey when I saw it.

I like it, but I would choose either the i or the e, not both. As in [name]Jamison[/name] or [name]Jameson[/name], but not [name]Jamieson[/name]

[name]Jamison[/name] is definitely NOT a girls name. My husbands name is [name]Jamison[/name] and we [name]LOVE[/name] it. He gets so many compliments on it. It’s a strong name.
