Jack is my favorite boys name. It's so cute on a little boy but It's hot and manly, yet still sweet, on a man. The name Jack makes me think of a very sweet guy, who also has a mischievous streak to him. If i have a son, his name will be Jack!

My husband wants to name our CorgI'mix-Jack. He was a gift from G-d; a stray. He was waiting for us to open our front door ; as well as to the door of our hearts. I like the name because it is of Hebrew orgin. Our dog is handsome, cute ,has different tan hues, intelligent, medI'm in stature, affectionate, loyal, intuitive and a great protector, house trained, quiet, obedient, and barks when you want him to bark and patient. Need I say more...........

I am named Jack and yes it is true that at first people do make fun of you with the "Jack and Jill" and other things like that but then as It'subsides it becomes a joke and makes people feel easier around you as all the jokes and nurdery rhymes and things of the'sort make your name widely known

Even'today very few babies in the UK are given'the name "Jack." Rather they are christened (or given) the name "John." Such was the case for me being born in Scotland. ("Jack" of course, is the affectionate or diminuative form of "John," cf. President John Kennedy, known by all his friends as Jack.) I have noticed that while this is readily accepted and used in the northern States, it continues to cause confusion here in the'south. I have several times had my identity challenged because my driving license has my formal name "John" but I am known to everyone as "Jack."

Please don't name your kid Jack. As a family name I was cursed with the name and have been'tormented relentlessly. Not just in high school but in professional work environmental. It's bad enough when Obama can call someone a "Jackass" on the evening news but at work when'things are wrong they are "Jacked". Please do not punish your child's life and career with a name meaning something is broken or done wrong.

Jackson is my sons name. I once heard that'someone who had three surnames for their entire name would be a great person, one for the history books. I liked that it could be shortened to Jack which is such a manly name.

That has to be an error--I find it hard to beli've that the use of Jack as a girl's name appeared in the 1920's, reached 61 uses per million babies, and then was never used again.

My son's name is Jack. We get asked alot if he's named after his dad or what It's short for. We always say It's "just Jack"! Everyone loves and remembers his name (It's not very popular where we live). We talk to someone once and then we'll see them again weeks or months later. They always ask, "How's Jack?" (meanwhile, I don't think they remember my husbands nor my name!). It's an awesome name.

Our 3yr old son is named Jack Thomas and he was born at 30 weeks weighing 2lb 13oz and is now taller than most kids his age and a great kid. We both loved the name always because it is so strong and also his great grandfather was named Jack. The name'suited him because he was so strong to battle through being so tiny.

My surname is "Jack". My first name is Nicholas. Nicholas gets shortened to "Nick". So I end up being called "Nick Jack". I hate it. I'm changing my surname to "Jackman", more inter'sting than "Jackson", and Hugh Jackman the actor has made it cool. Nick Jack..man , Auckland, New Zealand
