Jameson or Jamison?

How would you spell it?  We are talking about a middle name for a baby boy.  Is the pronunciation the same with both spellings?

  • I pronounce them the same. Although NMS, I'd go with Jameson. I know multiple people with this name as a last name and with both spellings. I think that's why I'm not fond of it.

  • Looks wise, I prefer Jameson. I don't pronounce them the same in my head, though.

    Jameson is James-son.

    Jamison is Jame-uh-son.

    Jamison is Jame-uh-son.

    I don't think this is right. I knew a Jameson in high school who pronounced it Jame-uh-son. 

    I prefer Jameson. Is the boy's father named James? 


  • Jameson. To me Jamison is only ever a LN, whereas I've seen Jameson many times for a MN - it's even on our list Smile

    It may not be right but that's how I pronounce them too.

  • E - the I makes it look feminine, which I never really noticed until just now with them compared side by side.

  • Jamison

    Jameson is the surname of a popular porn star as well as the label of an alcohol. Jamison is the original, 'son of James' while Jameson is some American variant that we came up with because we're familiar with the name, James. Not to mention they're both surnames.

    Basically, I see it as Aiden vs Aidan. One is the original, while the other is more popular in America.
