A mainstay of the middle ages, Jack has found a thousand faces as a verb, a noun and several mischief makers in nursery rhymes and fairy tales, from Jack and the Beanstalk to Jack Frost and jack-o’lanterns. Real-life Jacks include Jack Nicholson, Beat poet and novelist Jack Kerouac, and musician Jack White. The name is common among football players—and pirates, like Captain Jack Sparrow. Celebrity parents with Jacks include Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham, Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson, and Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid.
