James Given Name Meaning & History
GENDER: Masculine, USAGE: English, Biblical, PRONOUNCED: JAYMZ (English). English form of the Late Latin name Iacomus which was derived from 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 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 English explorer Captain James Cook (1728-1779), the Scottish inventor James Watt (1736-1819), and the Irish 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. James is a common royal name used in Europe and the English version of Jacob and happens to be one of the most popular boy’s names of all time—in the top 20 for the past century. James is also one of the few truly ageless names—when you hear it, you don’t know whether the person referred to is five or fifty-five. Famous James: James Buchanan – former US President, James Earl Carter – former US President, James Dean – actor, James Madison – former US President.
