- Though it’s slipped since its heyday, James remains one of the classic baby names. It averaged a number one ranking through the ’40s and ’50s, and averaged in the top five from the 1880s to the ’70s. It comes from the Greek Iakobos, the same root as number one name Jacob…and oddly enough, might just be a mistake, due to an early monk’s error in translating Greek manuscripts into Latin. Mistake or not, James became an incredibly well-used name, with bearers including a couple apostles, tons of rulers and six US Presidents (the most with any common name). While nicknames Jim, Jimmy, and Jamie used to be the norm, today the full version is more commonly used, even for babies and toddlers.
- English form of the Late Latin name Iacomus which was derived from Ιακωβος (Iakobos), the New Testament Greek form of the Hebrew name Ya'aqov (see JACOB). This was the name of two apostles in the New Testament. The first was Saint James the Greater, the apostle John's brother, who was beheaded under Herod Agrippa in the Book of Acts. The second was James the Lesser, son of Alphaeus. Another James (known as James the Just) is also mentioned in the Bible as being the brother of Jesus. Since the 13th century this form of the name has been used in England, though it became more common in Scotland where it was borne by several kings. In the 17th century the Scottish king James VI inherited the English throne, becoming the first ruler of all Britain, and the name grew much more popular. Famous bearers include the explorer Captain James Cook (1728-1779), the inventor James Watt (1736-1819), and the novelist and poet James Joyce (1882-1941). This name has also been borne by six American presidents. A notable fictional bearer is the British spy James Bond, created by author Ian Fleming.
