Gender: F Meaning of Jacqueline: "supplanter" Origin of Jacqueline: French, feminine diminutive of Jacques Jacqueline's Popularity in 2014: #246

To most Americans, the French Jacqueline still recalls the Kennedy era and its elegant First Lady, although it's lost a good measure of its glamorous image and Gallic gloss. Jacqueline and Jackie peaked as names in 1961, the age of Camelot, reaching a high of Number 37. It's now at 246, not really sharing in brother name Jack's new turn in the spotlight.

The name was imported into England by a French sister-in-law of Henry V (known as Dame Jack) and had reached the top 50 in this country by the 1920s. It's one of those names with a bunch of different spellings, the most common of which is Jaclyn.

Barbara Walter named her only child Jacqueline.
