Meaning:Son of Jack; Supplanter; May God protect
Jacky is a gender-neutral name of Hebrew, English, and French origin. It acts as a short, adorable version of names like Jacques, Jacqueline, or Jacob. One of its translations is “son of Jack,” making it a lovely choice if you want to pay homage to a past or present family member. If you’re looking to share your faith with your little one, Jacky also translates to “may God protect.” In the Hebrew Bible, Jacob was Esau’s twin and was born holding his older brother’s heel. With his drive to be the first, it’s no wonder that Jacky also means “supplanter.” Whether you want to celebrate your faith or follow in their sibling’s footsteps, the name Jacky will surely fit them with ease.
