    Thank you. It must not be a common Russian name.

    It's a bit outmoded. But I wouldn't say it's extremely uncommon.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Это не ошибка? Я знаю, что Jacob = Яков, а до Джеймса, кажется, далековато (даже если это выведено по аналогии с Ганс = Иван).

    Нет. Я всегда это знала, с самого детства - из какого-то солидного словаря английских имен. Да и все английские и шотландские короли Джеймсы у нас проходят под именем Яков.
