¿Cómo se dice?

So, the current Blue Beetle, Jaime do you pronounce his first name? I've heard most people use the English version, "Jay-mee," but typically that's spelled "Jamie" as opposed to "Jaime." It makes sense to use the Spanish pronunciation, "Hi-may," but I've never heard anyone say it that way.

So, what do you think?

On the Batman: The Brave & The Bold cartoon, it's pronounced "Hi-may", so that's the one I go with.

Yes. What Jason said. I was saying it "Jamie" in my head until the cartoon came out.

I didn't even notice it wasn't spelled "Jamie" until this post. Wow.

But yeah, ever since the debut of Batman: The Brave and the Bold I've been trying to make myself pronounce it "Hi-may" the same as I've been trying to pronounce John Constantine's surname "Constan-tyne", as in "wine".
