So, What Is The Meaning Of Your Name?

Mine would be...

Gender: Masculine
Usage: English, Biblical
Pronounced: JAYMZ
English form of the Late Latin Jacomus which was derived from (Iakobos),
the New Testament Greek form of (Ya'aqov) (see JACOB). This is the name
of two apostles in the New Testament. The first was Saint James the
Greater, the apostle John's brother, who was beheaded by 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.

Kings of England and Scotland have borne this name. Other famous bearers
include the inventor of the steam engine James Watt, the explorer Captain
James Cook, and the novelist and poet James Joyce.
