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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
