Behind The Name

So, what is the meaning of your name?
For James, it would be:

"English form of the Late Latin Jacomus which was derived from Ιακωβος
(Iakobos), the New Testament Greek form of יַעֲקֹב (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."
