My name is Jimmy but that is my real name not James. I really hate how people judge me because of my name. I love the name otherwise.

This name may be on the wane and a slight bit light, but it's not redneck nor jerk- related. Two of the hardest working people I've ever known are named James and Jimmy, and one is my uncle.

I'm mixed about this name, don't like the meaning of jimmying doors to burglarize something, but I always felt neutral, I guess, thinking of a likable Jimmy Stewart goofus. I've known only one and he was tall and good looking and had 3 jobs and I dated him briefly. Heard he died in his 30s, I don't know why. I don't think of it as a red neck or hillbilly name... maybe more gangster if I had to associate it with a group. LOVE the names James and Jamie, hate the Spanish pronunciation of them, ughs!

In 2018, 63 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Jimmy* who is registered male with the Social Security Administration. It is the 227th most common male first name for living U.S. citizens.

*as a first name, not a nickname.

It's a silly stupid name and I can't help associating it with that idiot Jimmy Carter and - yeah - corny so-called comedian Jimmy Kimmel. I'm not surprised both of those jerks carry this name.

My son's name is James, but we have always called him Jimmy. We are Irish American and every generation has at least one "Jimmy" My son likes his nickname, and still uses it rather than James. I always thought that he would switch to James as an adult, but he didn't. Neither did my brother, or my uncle, or my uncle's dad...

For me it is a very childish nickname; there are a lot of better names. I can say that I never loved the name James and all his nicknames. Jacob is so much better.

OK, this name isn't the WORST name in the world, I just think that it should be used as a nickname. People called me this until I was 5. And while I said it isn't the worst name, I still don't like it. It is too informal, and too common.

This was my nickname and I don't like it, too childish.

Jimmy Whetzel, an American YouTuber, bears this name.

My favorite nickname for James. It's better than going by just plain old Jim or Jamie.

My favorite nickname for James! (And the only one I like) It's so cute and fits all ages, but ONLY as a nickname! I really disagree with the people who think it's a redneck name... I don't get where you came up with that! But anyways, it's strange to me how people actually name their children nicknames as full names, what if they actually want to be someone important in society? If you want to call your son Jimmy, I'd say name him James and call him Jimmy. It's adorable :) also, I know someone who uses this as a nickname for Jaime, the Spanish equivalent of James.

I think Jimmy is sweet name. It reminds me of how in Britain sprinkles are called jimmies. Sweet!

Jimmy Cooper is the troubled teen protagonist of The Who's 1973 rock opera Quadrophenia, which was later turned into a movie. It's my favorite album of all time, so I'm kind of partial to the nickname.

Ashvarden  5/2/2009
I love the name James, but I would never, ever call my child Jimmy. Simply because it ruins the regal sound of James.

Comedian Jimmy Carr bears this name who is very popular in the Uk and known for his appearances on many game shows (8 out of 10 Cats, Would I lie to you?, QI and Have I Got News for You).
Luangi  8/12/2008
It is a redneck jerk's name. I've never met a nice Jimmy, and I've met quite a few. Plus I don't like that it's a nickname of James, they're pretty much the same length so it just confuses and annoys me.

In Adventures in Odyessy, one of the characters (the little boy in the Barclay family) is named Jimmy Barclay. He fits the role of the stereotypical "annoying little brother". The writers of Adventures in Odyessy have said that his name came from Jimmy Stewart's.

This sounds like something redneck jerks are called.

Whenever I hear the name Jimmy, I automatically start singing in my head, "Jimmy crack corn, and I don't care." It's rather annoying.

When I was young, I remember meeting a girl named Jimmy once. It was very strange and also somewhat funny since she was very girly with pink bows and all. I always thought of questioning her if it was her real name or if it was a nickname but I was always too terrified to ask.

To "jimmy" something is to forcibly open it, as if with a short crowbar (which is called a jimmy). (He jimmied the door open, for example.)

What are often just called "sprinkles" and are put on ice cream are also known as "jimmies." Though jimmy is the older term, it is sadly dying out. (I'm a jimmies loyalist, I'll admit.)

My ex-father named Jimmy has proved a right disappointment leaving at the beginning of this year so I now have bad thoughts of the name! I used to love the name but now it gives me very bad images.
