Often used as a nickname for the name John back in the day, Jack has climbed the beanstalk of baby names to become a relatively popular name for boys, particularly in the UK. An added bonus: you’ll never have a problem finding children’s books featuring your son’s name (think Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Jack Horner, Jack Sprat). Fun!
