Jack ...... for a girl.
Actually I write stories as a hobby. The main character is a girl named Jack. Her real name is Jazlyn but everyone calls her Jack, I like it anyways!
I like boy names for girls. We thought about naming our daughter Jaxxen (Jackson).
Parents should be creative, but u dont have to get freaking ridiculous. Sure you can name ur baby whatever the hell you want, but it's a child, not an accessory. I feel like many parents nowadays are in this "who's child's name is most ridiculous" competition. There are other ways to show people ur creative, come on... But that's just my opinion.
I would SO USE IT as a middle name for a girl. E.G. Elizabeth Jack.
But then the first name should be very girly/feminine.
I like Jack for a girl, but wouldn't use it as a first name, because the child would be bullied..for sure. People are just not used to it.
But as a middle name it's beautiful:)
Don't listen to these fools. You can name your baby anything you want. I used to know a girl named Jaq. Same pronunciation, just a different spelling. I actually really like it. Go for it :) It beats Ava or Madison. lol
Ugh, I sure hope you didn't name your girl Jack. I went to school with a girl named Spencer, and she got teased all the time. My friend recently had twin girls, and named them Blake and Parker. It's terrible, her friends make fun of her behind her back all the time.
If you had a boy, would you consider naming him Isabella or Lilly? Giving a girl a boy's name is a great way to mess them up. It's not cute.
It's not right to give a girl a boy's name. It's one thing if you decide to give her "Jack" as a nickname...it's a great nickname! But give the girl a woman's name to be proud of. How do you think she'll feel growing up in school being misidentified by the school, teachers, and classmates as a boy, probably placed in boys' locker rooms, boys' teams, and ridiculed by girls for her masculine name?
I am friends with a "Kris" who HATES the fact that her mom named her just KRIS. She said she went through every one of the issues mentioned above and even though she doesn't mind being called Kris, she wished her mother had given her a girl's name on her birth certificate to make growing up easier.
You have to be conscientious of your daughter's future, not just a cute, fun, trendy name that creates some shock and awe when you tell your friends what you've named her. Give her a woman's name and let the nickname Jack rule in your household. It's much easier to tell someone who calls her "Jacqueline" that she prefers to go by "Jack" than it is to try to explain to teachers, classmates, school officials, and computer systems, that she is in fact, a girl.
jack for a girl is okay.. well of course it is up to you. but basically spelling is key when you are choosing a gender neutral name you might want to include more vowels to make a more femine , like jaqu or jackie of couse you could call her by a nickname, for example you could have a boy and name him michael but you call him mikey or mike. but its your opinion. :D GOOD LUCK, coolmommy16
My sister Lauriette named her baby girl Jaq-Alec. Jaq was after the father Jaques and Alec after our father. She didn't like Jaqueline or Laurel as I pointed out so that the baby would have part of her name. The baby was always Jaq even in the early days of her pregnancy at first I thought it was a bump name something she could call the growing baby inside her, something to call or refer to instead of just saying 'The Baby' or 'Little One'. I liked the name when she said it was for a boy but kind of chringed when I heard her say it was also her choice for a girl. I beged her to call the baby something else if she did turn out to be female but Lauriette was adimant even making her partner Jaques back off and accept that his new baby be him male or she female would be called Jaq-Alec. When Baby Jay as I've always called her (Much to her 7 year old annoyance) was born it dawned on me the name actually really suits her and now she is the biggest Diva Drama Queen Preppy Princess I have ever met so it goes to show that a masculine name doesn't nessisarily mean a masculine persona. A few months ago I gave birth to my daughter MJ and little Jaq-Alec my Baby Jay said it was the perfect name. I hadn't said anything during the pregnancy incase Lauriette gave a little back of what I dished out to her about calling her baby Jaq but you know what Lauriette was very simpathetic and said how much she adored MJ as a name when I annoced it a few minutes after giving birth also proving that not all people are bitter trying to get one over on you. I've learnt not to judge or speculate. If you know someone who wants to call their baby Jack try to be suportive I know my sister would have appreciated a sympatetic ear instead of people trying to change her mind for months on end. Just a thought? And what if you want to call your baby something a little obscure in the future do you want to do what I did hiding the name incase revenge is sort? It's modern times and a lot of names are now unisex they weren't a few years previous we are also using more exotic names for our childern. My dad is called Alec, my brother-in-law Jaques, my sister Lauriette and me Marigold, my daughter MJ and my partner Juke and of course not forgetting Jaq-Alec my niece and you know what none of us are anything other than British through and through yet our parents decided to call us something unusual and forign or oldy worldy and I say we honor that. I have been lucky enough to meet some wonderful people in my life and do you know how I remember them? Their name, the more unconventional the better Juke and Jaques my partner and my sisters husband are twins they remembered us Lauriette and Marigold from school because we had obsure names unlike Katie or Samantha so when we found ourselves at the same university it was quite a shock but nobody could have guessed us getting together! I am so greatful of my name and Jukes for without them we wouldn't have our darling MJ and the same goes for Lauriette and Jaques who now have their unusual names to thank for their beautiful little cherub Jaq-Alec.
Funny--YOU found it and commented on it, though.
Yes I found it because it was at the very top from someone finding it and posting on it! This post needs to go away for good...people are posting on it and they have no idea of the original story behind it.
Funny--YOU found it and commented on it, though.
Wow-how are people stil finding and commenting on this thread?? This was a year ago and the whole story along with the poster's point has been deleted haha..and how do you people keep finding this thread? It should be burried along with all the other super old posts...
Jack is a mans name period. If you want to break with tradition call all your boys girls names too. You will look silly. Reminds me of a nursery rhyme:
"Jack sprat could eat no fat his wife could eat no lean
and so in between they licked the platter clean..."
You could call your daughter George if you like, but it wouldn't make it a girl's name.
I think Jack is better for a boy.
I think u should go ahead and do it if u really want regardless of what other pple r saying (:
