The name Jack is pronounced jak. It is of Old English origin. Name based on John (Hebrew) "the Lord is gracious", or Jacques, the French form of Jacob (Hebrew) "he who supplants." The name has a rugged, down-to-earth aura.

During the Middle Ages, Jack was so common that it was used as a general term for 'man' or 'boy'. Jackie is used more for girls than for boys. Actors Jackie Gleason, Jack Nicholson, Jack Black; comedian Jack Benny; exercise guru Jack LaLanne.

Same as above, derived from the viking pet name Jankins.

Originated from Avoch area in the Black Isles, Scotland.  The Jack name does not belong to a clan and does not have an official tartan.

Tartans are only just over 200yrs old, they are a glamour and were really only worn by the wealthy.

Update from above. There is evidence of Viking culture on the black Isle and the name has connections with the Norse name Jacobsen or jacobson. I have recently found out that the people on the black Isle had a different dialect and used different words from neighbouring Scots. Apparently it was related to French Gaelic from the Britany area.
I have more research to do on this connection.
