Nor do I know anyone in the UK who uses Jacques for Jack or vice-versa. Perhaps they do in Northern mainland Europe?
Some books claim that Alice means 'truth' - it doesn't. Just because books claim it and people repeat it, doesn't mean there's a connection. It means there is an error.
I would differentiate here; perhaps you would not. Certainly, producing a PhD. has sharpened my perspective on this :)
