It is most commonly known as first name for people with the (official) name John (German: Johannes), but partly also as a nickname for people named Jacob employed or assigned as an independent name. Jack comes from Jankin, short Anglo-Saxon for the first name John (January and the diminutive kin, "Little John") but also for the first names like Jackson, Jonathan, etc. It tends to emerge as full name. In Hebrew Jack means the by Yahweh gifted. Jack may also be a variant of Spanish name Juan / Santiago. In the Middle Ages, the name was so widespread that jack , via a process deonomastico , became a common term to refer broadly to a "man" (especially those belonging to the classes below), similar to what happened with the names Jenny , Tom and Godric . From there, exactly as happened with Jenny , the use is also extended to male animals and mechanical tools (as they replaced these human workers). The name Jack is also very common in fairy tales and folklore of medieval origin, with well-known characters like Jack Sprat , Jack Frost , Jack-o'-lantern and many others. In France , it is used as a "modern" version of the name Jacques. It should be noted that the diminutive Jackie, if female, it should be related not to Jack but Jacqueline.
