Well yes and no, depending on what you think. His actual name was James, but people called him, or nicknamed him, "Jim" or sometimes called him, "Jimmy." But no, he did not have a nickname nickname. Nothing like "Puppet boy" or something. It's just the name that most people know him by (Jim) is actually a nickname, not his real name (James.) Hope I helped.

Giaco is an Italian equivalent of the English name "Jim." The masculine diminutive in question serves as an affectionate nickname for Giacomo ("James"), whose origins trace back to the ancient Hebrew יעקב (Ya'ãqōb) from the root עקב ('qb, "to follow," "to supplant") or word עֲקֵב ('aqeb, "heel"). The pronunciation will be "DJA-ko" for the nickname and "DJA-ko-mo" for the forename in Italian.
