Default James from English to Arabic

Hi,
My middle name is James and I wanted to translate it to Arabic.
My attempt is this:

ﺟﺎﻤﺲ

My only concern is whether I got the letter 'a' translated correctly.

It seems there are three 'a' sounds (that I know of).
'a' in cat, 'a' in father, and 'a' in away
I am not certain that in the name James the letter 'a' can be translated by Alef. The sound in 'a' as in wait. Does this sound use Alef? I assumed I can use Alef.

Also, the 'e' is silent, right?

So is my translation O.K.?

Thanks

Hi

the " a " here is heard " é " like in french

your name will be write with " ي " : "yaa "
جيمس

yes, it is

Thank you for your help.

Just to clarify, my middle name James is pronounced:

'j' as in jamiil (i hope thats the word of beautiful), or in jaw or in jake or jack or jam
'a' as in say, or may, or day, or bait or late
'm' as in money, or more
's' as in sale, or summer, or sorry

I dont know what the French 'e' sounds like, but if it is the same as the 'a', as in jamiil, then what would my name look like.

The 'a' isn't the 'e' sound from here, so I don't think "yaa" would work.

Thanks

if you write it " جامس " the " a " here w'll prononced " I " in english

james is write " جيمس "

How do you translate "Jamie" into arabic. I've been trying to figure out how to write it out in arabic, what would it look like? would it be almost the same as "james"?
