Nickname for James

[name]Hi[/name]! Can [name]Jake[/name] be a nickname for [name]James[/name]? [name]Jacob[/name] and [name]James[/name] both mean supplanter in Hebrew. [name]Do[/name] you think it works? My husband’s name is [name]James[/name], but he grew up [name]Jimmy[/name] and hated it. His dad is [name]Jim[/name]. My brother is [name]Jamey[/name]. I’m not crazy about [name]Jay[/name]. I really like [name]Jake[/name], but not [name]Jacob[/name]. Any other ideas? Thanks!

[name]Jam[/name], [name]Jem[/name], [name]Jimmy[/name], [name]Jas[/name]… or J plus his middle initial.

I’m also married to a [name]James[/name], and one of his best friends actually calls him [name]Jake[/name] :slight_smile: It’s the only nickname, besides my occasional calling him [name]Jamey[/name], that he doesn’t despise with all of hell’s fury!

My brother is [name]James[/name] nn [name]Jake[/name]. It definitely works.

I personally love [name]James[/name] with no nickname - just [name]James[/name]!
