James is one of the strongest of all names, an elegant, slashing verbal sword. Jim, on the other hand, is a laid-back sort of guy. And this is a name where you have to pick sides '- if a guy is called Jim, he's always, only Jim. If you want just an occasional nickname try Jamie, or go the initial route a la James "JT" Taylor, or James "JC" Penney.
