My full name is Giacomo but everyone calls me Jake or Jack; especially when I'm in an English speaking country. I don't like "James" used for Giacomo: It sounds so different from the original version of my name. Jim or Jimmy are also so far from my original name and I dislike them. In Italian as nicknames for Giacomo we have: Giacomino, Giaco, Giachi and Mino. Giacobbe and Jacopo are another forms of Giacomo, because they have the same etymology and the same meaning.

The pronunciation first given was correct. The "i" is only there to make the G pronounced as "j" rather than as a hard "g."

It's harsh sounding. I wish I liked it, though, because I love Puccini's operas.

The Italian pronunciation which is currently listed is correct except for the beginning.

JYAH-Koh-Moh

As you see, it starts with "Gia" (equaling: Jyah). There is no "JAH" in the Italian language. Without the "I" (key to the whole sound) it would simply be "Ga"-- the "G" would then be hard, "Gah." Let us continue. "O" is as usual, "O," for both found in the ending "Como."

Along with Dante Alighieri, he's considered to be one of Italy's greatest poets.
