Names in Ukrainian - James

*waves*
Hullo! I'm hoping for some clarification. I have a character named James. He has a Ukrainian neighbor that he's known all his life. She calls him James or very occasionally the appropriate diminutive.

Google translate says 'James' is 'Dzheyms'

Wikipedia and a couple of origins of names sites say 'James' is 'Yakiv'.

Which is correct? And what would be the equivalent of the diminutive (Jimmy, Jamie) in Ukrainian of the correct translation?

Thank you!
