James Name Meaning

James comes from the Latin Jacomus; which became Giacomo in Italy (see Jacob and Jack), which was further shortened to Jaime or Iame in Spain with the pet form of Jamettus. This eventually became Jamys and then Jeames until it reached James and Jim. Hamish is a Scottish form and Diego is a Spanish form for James (Matt 4:21; 10:2–3; 13:55; 17:1; 27:56; Mark 1:19, 29; 3:17–18; 5:37; 6:3; 9:2; 10:35, 41; 13:3; 15:40; 16:10; Luke 5:10; 6:14–16; 8:51; 9:28, 54; 24:10; Acts 1:13; 12:2, 17; 15:13; 21:18; 1 Cor 15:7; Gal 1:19; 2:9; Jas 1:1; Jude 1:1). Famous people: James Barry Munnik Hertzog (1866–1942), South African War leader, judge, nationalist and Prime Minister of the Union of South Africa (1924–1939). Inspiration: Jacob became the patriarch of the Israelites and the bearer represents that. He wanted God’s blessing (starting even before his birth) and took initiative. The bearer represents these features (intelligence; initiative; determination; replacement) but also that he will follow the Lord (Rev 19:4). See also Jack and Jacob Jano See Eugene.

“Oh, James. . . .” You can almost hear the breathy purr of any one of 007’s lovers. IanFleming’s superspy James Bond exemplifies the supreme Britishness of this name as well as itssuave, somewhat formal sound. That tone is supported by the many centuries worth of Scottish andBritish monarchs named James. Funny then that one of the most English-sounding of English names isa close relative of the Old Testament name Jacob. Jacob became Iakobos, whichbecame Iacomus, which became James. (Two Jameses were important disciples of Christ in the NewTestament.) At the time of this writing, the name James is at an all-time low of number seventeen.

(James spelled backwards, Semaj, has been used as aname since 1999.)
