January Jones came to some shocking revelations about the name “Jim” — and she wasn’t too thrilled about it.

“Last night I spent a good 30 [minutes] laying in bed pondering the name Jim,” Jones, 46, wrote via Instagram Story on Tuesday, January 9. “Like what a weird name. It’s not short for anything, it doesn’t mean anything. Imagine if Rose’s love interest in Titanic was named Jim, would you even care if he froze? Prob not.”

The Mad Men alum went on to share that she ended up asking her mom about it and found out the name “Jim” is short for “James.”

“I’m furious, how did someone get to Jim from James? So stupid,” she shared. “I’m so ashamed that the word Jimothy was in my brain for a few minutes. I can never get that time back. And sorry to the Jims. I mean no disrespect. Also sorry to my family for how I am.”
