Meaning & Origins

Originally a pet form of John, but now a well‐established given name in its own right. It is derived from Middle English Jankin, later altered to Jackin, from Jan (a contracted form of Jehan ‘John’) + the diminutive suffix -kin. This led to the back-formation Jack, as if the name had contained the Old French diminutive suffix -in. It is sometimes also used as an informal pet form of James, perhaps influenced by the French form Jacques. It has been the most popular boys' name in England and Wales since 1995. Well-known bearers include the actor Jack Nicholson (b. 1937) and the golfer Jack Nicklaus (b. 1940). See also Jock and Jake.
126th in the U.S.
English: descriptive nickname for a giant or a large man, from Middle English golias ‘giant’, from the Hebrew personal name Golyat Goliath. In the Bible Goliath was the champion of the Philistines, who stood ‘six cubits and a span’; he was defeated in single combat by the shepherd boy David (I Samuel 17), who killed him with a stone from his sling. There is unlikely to be any connection with the English vocabulary word gully (from Old French goulet ‘neck of a bottle’), which is not attested in this sense before the 17th century.
