  • "It's a simple but endearing name. It never stood out to me much when I was younger, but that's the very thing that makes me like it. It's not overbearing like most names now. Someone I look up to is named Jim. The only thing that holds me back is that it is short, but if I ever have a son, this is most likely what I'll name him." Dec. 4, 2016: Report as inappropriate

  • "my great-great grandpa's name was Jim. I love the nick name Jimmy, James is way too common!" Aug. 27, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "Actually a nickname but much better than James which can sound a bit, I don't know, snobbish. Very strong. Sounds honerable and admirable to me, like a big brother you look up to." Sep. 14, 2006: Report as inappropriate

  • "I like having a short name, since my last is so long; that being said, if you name your child people WILL assume it is short-hand for Jimmy, James, or John... Since those names are so much more popular." Oct. 9, 2019: Report as inappropriate
