    Why would anyone say hay-thorn? a+w= or like saw! I like all of your combinations and cannot choose which to vote for.

    I think your in-laws are just pronouncing it incorrectly. The 'w' helps create the soft -a sound (rhyming with moth) as opposed to the harder -a sound (rhyming with bath). I like Jack Hawthorne.

So- if we use Henry in the middle name spot, then I could sometimes maybe call him Henry? Or at least Jack Henry together sometimes... Or do I use Hawthorne as a middle because it is more special and has the nature connection that I want? Henry is getting more popular and maybe Jack Henry just doesn't have the same wow factor that Jack Hawthorne has?
    When I was reading your post about another mn for Jack, I thought of Jack Henry! So I think Jack Henry is just perfect for you - Jack Henry is very handsome and to me, it does have a "wow" factor.

    This basically sums up my thoughts.

    Thank you all for your help! We are 2 days away from meeting our little guy and our frontrunner is Jack. Either Jack Hawthorne or Jack Henry. August James is a distant third. It's tough because Jack doesn't feel like the "perfect" name to me but it feels more right than August does I think. And my husband will not consider any other possibilities outside of those two at this point. Our younger daughter's name Violet felt like the perfect name to me from day 1 of my pregnancy - I just loved her name so much and still do. I wish I could feel that way about this baby's name but maybe that is just how it goes when you have to compromise with someone else...
    Thank you again!!
