The name Jimmy is pretty much short for James, even though it isn't mentioned in the game, could it be pissible that his full name is James Hernandez Addicted2gta 19:09, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

  • MAYBE that could be added to the trivia section, but other than that, since "James" is never mentioned, the rest of the article should remain as is. Tornmuscle 20:50, April 5, 2010 (UTC)
  • Yeah, but Mike Toreno's full name is Michael Toreno even though it isn't mentioned in the game, so his name could still be James Hernandez Addicted2gta 22:16, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, it could be James Hernandez. When has the name Jimmy not been short for James?

Never, however today Jimmy is a seperate names from James, but when Hernandez was born, Jimmy couldn't be baptised as a name so James had to be a full name. I'll change it and see what happens Addicted2gta 20:58, April 10, 2010 (UTC)

Jimmy could be his legal name. My legal birth name is Jamie not James. Also there is several reason why he doesn't talk. He doesn't want to reveal that he is working for IAD, forcing to murder ralph, being berated for irrevelance subjects or he is basically shy. There are shy coppers. Another example in names it that in Drillbit Taylor, Bob says his legal name is Bob not Robert.--SSJJ BarSSJJBar TalkSSJJ BAR Contribs2 00:14, December 22, 2012 (UTC)

Is it only me that thinks his name may be, may be based on the rock singer Jimi Hendrix ? Shotgunguy11 (talk) 16:41, August 28, 2016 (UTC)

I think it may just be you mate. "Jimmy" is quite a common name, and apart from that there's nothing else connecting him to Hendrix. Sam Talk 16:54, August 28, 2016 (UTC)

Further to the above discussion, there is no evidence supporting the name James. Jimmy is certainly a legitimate first name, even in the 50's and 60's when we presume Jimmy Hernandez would have been born (e.g Jimmy Smitz b. 1955, Jimmy Wales b. 1966) without needing to be a diminutive of James.

^ What he said. Jimmy is commonly used as an actual first name. Unless the name "James" is stated at some point in-game, it doesn't belong here. Ultimate94ninja talk · contribs 10:51, January 27, 2019 (UTC)
