My you're a fancy one.
I understand Jack
can be synonymous with any man, but I was mainly curious if it was a typically diminutive for James
. Perhaps it is amusing, but I can't imagine my extended consideration of these names is anymore silly (read: obsessive) than my posting on a name-focused message board in the first place :). My wife and I don't plan on having any more kids, so this being my one shot to name my son I'd like to put as much thought into it as possible. It is important to me, but like I said before, if it wasn't, I wouldn't be posting here in the first place.
