Looking at the national statisitics James is top 10 and has been for a long time, but how many do you know?

I can only think of one in ds pre school, it doesn't seem that popular around here.

I have 5 children in 5 different year groups and off the top of my head I can only think of 2.

I know 2. It is my sons middle name too

Ps we have a Robert and a Mary and am due ds2 in Jan.
I like traditional but not too popular names but hubby really wants James.

I know quite a few my age (36) but don't think there are any in my Reception boys class & only 1 in my Pre School sons class grin

My DS1 has it as a middle name. If I'd of known we were going to have DS2 I wouldn't have used it as a middle name for DS1 but a first name for DS2!

Loads. Aged from1-80

V Popular name - Posh/ safe/RP/MC/Classic

James is an incredibly popular name in my area.

I will just count how many I know (aged 13 to about 5 as I don't know many very small children now) - I can think of 18 off the top of my head.

It really is up there with William, Tom and Joe. All fine names but nt for you if you want "not too popular2 tbh.

Only my son at our primary school, and then I know 3 in their 20's and 1 in his 40's

I have a little James grin
There's 5 in my dcs primary.
James is off to secondary so I should imagine there's a fair few there.

Fab name grin

I know quite a few my age and older but no little ones smile

Ds1 is James. He is the only one I know (apart from my late dad). There are loads of Jamies though in various classes at school.

northernmonkey - My James is off to secondary school too grin

I know 2 who are 2 years old. Have counted the people with 2 year olds I know well and would consider friends- so that's 2/19. (Also know various older ones through work etc)

I know A LOT!! But it's still a lovely strong, solid, traditional name.

bagpuss Sat 18-Aug-12 11:28:22

Vagaceratops, mine too! grin

My 25 year old cousin, two 30+ year olds in one small workplace and one 8 year old. It is very common as a middle name because it's a nice, simple name and goes with everything. Nothing flowed correctly with my DS's names except for James and Jack so we stuck with them.

Robert, Mary and James, fantastic. Lovely strong names that will stand the test of time.

1 in his 50s
4 in their 40s
1 in his 30s

I want James for ds3, but it's the middle names for ds1+2. So will be middle name for ds3 too (dh middle name)

I know of no James's in any playgroups, nurseries, schools ds attends

My ds is James. I don't know any others his age (2). I know a few older ones. It was never going to be a unique name but I love it!
