Jameson — The Bump
Baby Names

Jameson

I'm trying to think of J names for a boy.  DS is John.  I don't love the name James, but it's okay.  I REALLY dislike the nickname Jimmy that often comes with the name James.  First of all, what do you think of Jameson?  I would probably try to call him Jameson, but would be okay with James as a nickname.  Do you think I can avoid the NN Jimmy with this name/NN combo?

In the family, we already have Justin, Josh, Jason, Jonathon, Jaxsen, and John.

Re: Jameson

  • Jameson makes me think of whiskey and I think James is better with John.  I wouldn’t worry about Jimmy as a nickname.  I’ve known James’ who never went by Jim or Jimmy.  Assuming you want a J name you could also use 

    Jeremy 
    Jonas
    Jonah
    Jordan

  • My nephew is James and has never gone by anything else. But, I would avoid a name you really hate NN too but they just happen sometimes... I don’t mind Jameson but prefer James.

  • I like Jameson but I don’t drink so I don’t think of the beverage  :)

  • I don't think Jimmy is used as a nickname as commonly as it used to be.  My nephew is James and I've never heard a single person call him Jimmy.

    Jameson= alcohol to me.  So I would honestly kind of assume his parents were partyers.  It's just where my mind goes.

  • I didn't think about the alcohol when I heard the name.  Thanks for making me aware!  Back to the drawing board for me!  :)

  • My first thought is whiskey. 

    I think it works if that association doesn’t bother you. I think James could work too - just call him James and have others follow suit. 

    Suggesting: Julian, Joel, Jasper, Jerome

    DS is James. DH abhors the nn Jimmy, so no one calls him that. Unless he one day decides he wants to go by Jimmy, I don't think you'll run into an issue. People will generally call your kid what you want them to.

    I agree with others that Jameson seems trendy and makes me think of the whiskey

  • Honestly, it seems like you have enough J names in the family already. I would choose another classic name (no J): 

    Robert
    Peter
    Henry
    Paul
    Philip
    Andrew
    Daniel

    and Jameson is either the whiskey or the chosen last name of the most famous porn star of all time.

    I went to school with a Jamison. I’m 32, btw. He went by Jamie and is a newscaster now! I never associated it with the whiskey when I was younger, but now I obviously do a little. However, he has a successful career in the public eye with the name. It’s not that bad, IMO. If you like it, go for it. I wouldn’t consider Jimmy a nn automatically for the name. 

    ETA correct spelling as his name just came on the TV screen! I think I like the “I” better than the “e.”

    Oh, I know! We definitely do! I would like to do a classic non J name but DH's family has a tradition of naming boys J names. I'm trying to see if there's any J names I like. We'll see. Maybe this baby will be a girl and we won't have to worry about it. :)

  • My nephew is Jamison and goes by Jay, if you're looking for another NN option

  • The porn star is my first association and then the liquor.  


    Honestly, I'm quite tired of the Jameson trend.
