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.
