Meaning:he who supplants
This is the kind of name that fits either a boy or girl rather nicely. It’s relaxed, friendly and doesn’t put on any airs. It comes from James, which is Hebrew, but the nickname Jamie was actually a 19th century Scottish invention. The name was a big hit with both genders in the 1970s. Actor Jamie Foxx wears his name well, as does actress/reality show star Jamie Chung.
