So far as I have been able to see, the first person in Scotland to be called James was James Stewart who would become the 5th High Steward.
But was he?
On another forum a colleague posted this about a King James: "In an English history book he is called James, in a French history book Jacques and in a German history book Jakob."
So does anyone know when the name James qua James actually entered the Scottish vernacular? What did James Stewart's (albeit unknown) mother really call him? When was the first time that someone was actually christened "James" as such?
