About James

Go back to names list

English form of the name borne in the New Testament by two of Christ’s disciples, James son of Zebedee and James son of Alphaeus. This form comes from Late Latin Iacomus. This is the same name as Old Testament Jacob, but for many centuries they have been considered by the English-speaking as two distinct names. James is a royal name in Britain associated with James I of Scotland; a patron of the arts, a noted poet and energetic ruler. Famous bearers include James Blunt and James Brown (singers) and fictional character James Bond.
