Jaime is a common Spanish and Portuguese masculine given name for Jacob, James, Jamie, or Jacques. In Occitania Jacobus became ''Jacome'' and later ''Jacme''. In east Spain, ''Jacme'' became ''Jaime'', in Aragon it became ''Chaime'', and in Catalonia it became ''Jaume''. In western Spain Jacobus became ''Iago''; in Portugal it became ''Tiago''. The name ''Saint James'' developed in Spanish to ''Santiago'', in Portuguese to ''São Tiago''. The names ''Diego'' (Spanish) and ''Diogo'' (Portuguese) are also Iberian versions of ''Jaime''. In the United States, Jaime is used as an independent masculine given name, along with given name Jimmy. For females, it remains less popular, not appearing on the top 1,000 U.S. female names for the past 5 years. It is an alternative spelling of Jamie.
