    Jack and Johnny/Johnnie about covers it that I'm aware of. I suppose you could do Jo/Joe by a long stretch (everyone would assume it was Joseph though).

    I guess you could also do Jackie, Jacks/Jax by a stretch.

    Did you also just want a list of related names? Cause there are tons of those...

    Yeah, Johnny was my only other thought. I much prefer Jack (my brother is a Johnny, and it sounds so childish to me, although I do suppose it works for some people). I've also heard J/JJ/Jay.

    I was also thinking of variations of John, like Johannes, Zane, Ian, Shane, Giovanni, etc., but I'm guessing that's not what you're looking for...
