Meaning:He who supplants
Jaymes is a variant spelling of James, the English form of the Hebrew name Jacob, meaning “he who supplants.” This ancient name has countless variants, including Jacques, Jack, Jim, Jamie, Jaime, Séamas and many more. It has its roots in the story of twins Jacob and Esau in the Hebrew Bible. Esau was born first, making him the family’s heir, while Jacob came second, holding Esau’s foot. Jacob later supplanted Esau as heir by buying Esau’s birthright, hence the meaning of the name. With its unique spelling, Jaymes offers a fresh twist on the classic James.
