opinions on name Jim

voluptuagoodshag Tue 12-May-15 22:26:19

Love it

I think Jim is fine for a nn, but would use James, mainly to give the kid a choice. I hate the main nn for my first name so really pleased my parents gave me the choice.

I really like it

I know one under five. I really like it but would def give James as a full name on BC.

My friend has a Jim (he's 11 now). Nice name, suits him.

He was nicknamed Baby Gym for a while after he was born. hmm

Not a fan, it's a bit man-in-his-60's for me. Absolutely fine as a nn with James as full name. Interestingly there was a Jimmy in my DD's nursery for a while, he'd be about 4 now.

Jim is one of multiple options for a boy/man named James. It makes a nice change from the rather wet Jamie.

I like it with James as the full name

Love it.

I think it's awful. Sorry but it's an old man's name.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Thu 14-May-15 20:38:26

It's not an old mans name around here. It's cool teen name x 2.

Oooh I love it.

And if you have another DS in the future, will you call him Bob? I'm really tickled by the idea of little brothers called Jim and Bob.

Love it, fab name. I think I would go with James on be too

Brilliant name smile Makes me think of Jim Royle, but I still love it! Go for it, it's normal, but a bit different.

reuset Thu 14-May-15 21:55:26

Nice, but all the Jims I've ever known have been James. I'd use James
