Jim is lovely name, it sounds like "a man of few words and great actions". I highly recommend this name. I do plan to name my first to be son Jim.

Jim is a character in "Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain. He is a slave of Miss Watson who is trying to escape slavery with the help of Huck Finn. The spoken dialect he uses in the book is easily recognizable.

I think this is an awful nickname. It sounds like the name of your neighbor or uncle, and I can't imagine someone actually having this as a full name.

Despite my strong hatred for the highly-overrated James, I quite like the nickname Jim. It sounds neighborly and humble. Plus, Jim Carrey is a childhood idol of mine.

Another name that I can't stand. It sounds so strange to my ears. I dislike so much James and all his nicknames like Jim. All of them are so far from the real name in the Bible that is Yaacov, used also in many languages for both Jacob and James.

I can't stand this nickname. It sounds like the name of an American man who has sexist, disrespectful views of women from other cultures.

I love the nickname Jim for the name James! There are so many things I could say about it. It's strong, manly, and firm. It sounds like a trustworthy man with a sense of humor, someone friendly, very loyal, and kind.

I knew someone named Jim; a middle aged man who was the pianist in my church. He was very friendly, and funny in a way.

Does Jim Kirk not count? Because whenever I hear this name I think of the captain of the Enterprise!

Although he's known as James in most of the other incarnations, in the BBC series 'Sherlock', Sherlock Holmes' nemesis introduces himself as follows: "Jim Moriarty... hi!" He's called Jim during most of his scenes.
So much about Jim being a name for a trustworthy, good-willed person, who's only up to some harmless mischief... :)

Hahaha, not to be mean, but that comment about Jim sounding like the name of someone you could trust made me laugh a little bit. Because whenever I think of the name Jim, I think of Jim Jones, the leader of the People's Temple who convinced 909 people to kill themselves. He's where the phrase, "Don't drink the Kool-aid." comes from. With an impression like that, I'm not a fan of the name obviously! Stick with James, I say.

A famous bearer is the actor Jim Parsons, who is best known for his role as Dr Sheldon Cooper on The Big Bang Theory. Sheldon is my favorite character on my favorite show, and his catchphrase "Bazinga!" is my username.

I've always liked Jim--a heck of a lot more than Jamie. It's a bit of a dying name; I don't know any kids named Jim, they're all James or Jamie. I don't like that. Jim's a nice name, it sounds cool and I don't really like it when there's a nickname for a name and people use the full name. I don't like kids called Henry (I like Hank and Harry), Thomas (Tom) or Michael (Mike). Jim's a cool name, and I wish that more kids were named it.

Jim Hutton was Freddie Mercury's lover. You know, Freddie Mercury, the lead singer of Queen? Of course you do! There isn't any other lead singer, or any other band!

This is the name of a guy in The Vicar of Dibley, whose catchphrase is 'no no no no no yes'.

My impression of a "Jim" is someone who is handsome and friendly, and a trustworthy person to have as a friend. Loyal and quiet, but with a sense of humor. Responsible, but not without a willingness to be about a little harmless mischief.

Jim definitely sounds like someone you could trust. And if it's a boy, it's way better than Jamie or Jacey--those sound like girls' names.

Jim is a nice name, but it doesn't stand alone. It works well as a nickname though.

I really like it. I think it's better than some of the things you see people naming their kids nowadays. It's simple yet phonetically pleasing.

I don't think of this name as a "yaaaawn...booo-ring" name like some of you. Jim is a cool simple name that reminds me of a nice fit man. It's better than half the names I hear nowadays.

Short version of James. A name of confidence. Strong, good willed. Everybody wishes they knew a gentle, kind man called JIM.
