Quoting Mrs. God of Thunder:" Haha.. my name is Jamie, so I see it as the complete opposite. I cannot see a boy with it, since it technically is the feminine form of James. Why can't they just go by James or Jim?... LOL"
He actually does go by James to everyone else - Jamie is my pet name for him, it feels really weird for me to call him James. I think he would punch anyone else who tried calling him that. What awkward is that to me, he is Jamie, to his family, he is Derrek (his middle name, he went by that until he was 17) and to everyone else, he is James.
Gets a tad confusing when I get mail from his family addressed to Derrek. When I met him and even after we had been together a while, I had no idea he had gone by Derrek and I came across his photo album from childhood and it had pics of "Derrek" and his sister....and I'm like "Dude, who the hell is Derrek?" - "Oh, thats me!"
