James is the name of at least two of Simon's friends, though Simon joked that when he was in school all the boys he knew were called James, including himself, with the exception of his friend Jimmy. Lewis states that James was a common name during the time they were born, and that there must have been at least four James's in his class. Simon stated that his birthname is in-fact James, but he changed it to Simon by deed poll.
