My name is Jacqueline but I go by Jackie. My paternal grandfather's name was Jack so my parents named me for him. I was the only Jackie in my class as well as the whole grade in grammar school. People have asked me if I was named after Jacqueline Kennedy...nope! I was 5 years old when President Kennedy was elected! I must say, I think Mrs. Kennedy was such an elegant lady and the way she pronounced her name ~ "JackLEEN" was perfect for her. I could not pull that off!

I have this as a male name in my fanfic. His two older brothers use it to tease him. Besides his brothers, everyone just calls him Jack.

This name just sounds so dated now-- like something from the 1950's or 1960's. When a guy named Jack gets called Jackie it's often because someone is insinuating that he's effeminate and not a real man. They're making fun of him.

I prefer just Jack for a boy, or Jacky, but Jackie as a girls nickname. I know a Jackie as a full name and she's female.

Don't forget that Jack/Jacky/Jackie are also nicknames for the "Jacob's family", not only for John. In France or in Belgium, Jacky is a very common pet name for Jacques. For example the driver Jacky Ickx was a Jacques and there are many other examples like this. In my opinion, Jack is derived from Jacques and not from John; I don't believe in the Jankin's theory. Jackie used for Jacqueline is one of the examples that gives me reason. Think about it.

I love the name Jackie... probably as it is my name! Don't worry, have no shame in your name. I struggle forever trying to figure out how to spell my name. I even used to be ashamed because I was named after my uncle Jakey... And I'm a girl... But anyway, my full name spelling is Jaclynn so I struggled trying to figure out whether or not I wanted to spell it Jacie or Jackie. But now that I'm used to it, I ❤️ It!

I really dislike my given name (it's so boring, don't you know?), so I go by Jackie instead. It suits me quite well, but, you know, you'd have to be careful, not everybody is as unconventional as I, and some people hate the name.

I don't like this name. It seems too masculine for a girl but too feminine for a boy.

In my opinion, Jackie doesn't sound like a good name or nickname for girl, but I do think it sounds like a nice name or nickname for a boy.

My name is Jacqueline, but everyone calls me Jackie. I really like it, and everyone who meets me says that they love it. I think it is a great name for girls, but I don't really like it as a boy name - it just sounds too feminine.

I don't like the name Jacqueline or Jack, but I somehow do like Jackie. It sounds very cute but strong at the same time. :D

This is what I get called, since my name is Jacqueline. I think it is a wonderful name. I have only had it misspelled two ways (Jacquie and Jacky). I think this is a really good name. For one thing, it suits adults as well as children, males as well as females. And also when used on a female, it is good for a lady/girly girl as well as hoyden/tomboy (I fit the latter description, and it suits me perfectly).

I think this name is a little too common. Every middle aged woman that you meet is called Jackie. Ditto for Linda Marion, Barbara and Sandra.

Um I'm sorry but I have to disagree with you, not every middle aged woman is named Jackie.
