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: habitational name from Hartshorne in Derbyshire or Hartshorn in Northumberland, named from Old English heorot ‘hart’, ‘stag’ + horn ‘horn’, i.e. hill with some fancied resemblance to a hart's horn. Reaney suggests a further possibility: that it could come from the Middle English plant name harteshorn ‘hartshorn’, denoting either of two plants with leaves branched like a stag's antlers: Senebiera coronopus and Plantago coronopus.
