Baby Name James

Meaning of James - What does the name James means?
Gender: Boy Name
Origin: Biblical
Name Meaning: Variant form of Jacob (seizing by the heel, supplanting). James was the elder brother of John, both of whom were among the Twelve Apostles. Many believe that his mother (Salome), and Mary were sisters, making James a cousin of Jesus. He was beheaded by Herod Agrippa, making him the first martyr among the apostles. The name was also borne by a brother of Jesus who actively opposed Christ's ministry. After Jesus' death, however, he played a leading role in the affairs of the early church and was known as a devout man. Jewish historian Josephus says he was martyred in A.D. 62 by the high priest
