The Man

Jack was originally an English nickname for John, meaning ‘God is Gracious’. It came about from the Old English nickname Jankin.

Jack is sweet and short and can also be a short form itself of elongated version Jackson (Son of Jack). It reminds me of bomber one syllable names like Luke, Kai and Brett.
