Baby Name Jack: Hitting the jackpot

October 11, 2012 Linda Rosenkrantz

You’re considering the name Jack. You like it because it’s less formal than John, less trendy than Jackson. It has a nickname feel, yet stands solidly on its own, a diminutive that has become a classic in itself. And because a Jack can be anything.
But which kind of anything would your Jack be? There are so many conceivable role models he might follow, good and not-quite-so-good. Here are some of the many possibilities, both real and fictional and how he might turn out if he followed their lead.

Jack Kennedy

He could be President of the United States! He could create a twenty-first century Camelot! Charming and charismatic, he could be a war hero, a Pulitzer Prize winner, meet innumerable national and international challenges, and marry a chic and cultured woman with a French name.
