Additional information Jack:
Jack Niklaus, Golf Player
Originally a pet form of John, but now a well-established given name in its own right. It is derived from Middle English Jankin, later altered to Jackin. It is sometimes also used as an informal pet form of James, perhaps influenced by the French form Jacques. It has been the most popular boys' name in England and Wales since 1995. Well-known bearers include the actor Jack Nicholson and the golfer Jack Nicklaus, as well as fictional characters Jack Bauer of TV series 24 and Captain Jack Sparrow.
A nickname for the more popular John (well, actually, it’s a shortened version of the medieval Jackin or Jankin, which were diminutives for John), Jack is climbing in popularity, mirroring its rise at the beginning of the last century. It first peaked at number 14 in ’29 and ’30, then dipped to a low of 179 in ’89. It’s now back in the top 40, and should stick around for a while -- parents like the comfortable, classic, happy, and fresh sound of the name. Despite its frequent appearance in fairy tales and nursery rhymes (Jack Sprat…Little Jack Horner…Jack and the Beanstalk…etc.), Jack also has managed to retain a slightly edgy feel.
Derived from Jackin (earlier Jankin), a medieval diminutive of JOHN. It is often regarded as an independent name. During the Middle Ages it was very common, and it became a slang word meaning "man". It was frequently used in fairy tales and nursery rhymes, such as 'Jack and the Beanstalk', 'Little Jack Horner', and 'Jack Sprat'. American writers Jack London (1876-1916) and Jack Kerouac (1922-1969) were two famous bearers of this name. It is also borne by American actor Jack Nicholson (1937-).
