Jamis is a gender-neutral name of Hebrew origin that acts as an adorable variant of James. Coming from the name Jacob, one of its translations is “Yahweh may protect,” making it a lovely way to share your faith with baby. In the Christian Bible, Jacob was born holding the heel of his older brother Esau, in hopes of becoming the first born. Because of this story, it’s no wonder that Jamis also translates to “supplanter” or “holder of the heel.” If you want a cute moniker to connect baby to your faith—or celebrate them as the youngest addition to your family—the name Jamis makes for a wonderful choice.
