    Yes this!!! I don't understand it. My husband gets the female spelling EVERY TIME. It's the most generic name!!! It makes no sense and really bothers me!!

    My husband has a unisex name and has the male spelling, but no one in Australia seems to be aware of it being unisex or that the various spellings are male or female.

    I am so sick of hearing,
    "That's a girl's name"

    Oh true! I didn't even know there was Jaime until I met a lady online about 9 yrs ago. I have a cousin I grew up with Jamie, a guy so always thought that was it.
    People and names! Drives you mad

    My hubby is Jody. Jodie is the female spelling.
    In the late 70s, early 80s, it was a popular name for boys in England. Not so much in Australia though.
    Since he moved to Australia he gets so many comments and was teased at school.

    That sucks. I can imagine. I think that's popular for boys in America too? I quite like it. Actually like it better for a boy than girl.

    Yes it is popular in America too. I love it. I wanted to call our son Jody but hubby was having none of that!
