    TiNe_2_IP, You are right about that and I can't even think of anyone named Jack in my present life. Good points, EffEm & Tallulah. I notice these things, too. Not to long ago it seemed like the name "Chuck" was really popular in the media.

    I have nothing against the name Jack in the real world but how cool can it be in the entertainment world when it is so 'worn out' by dozens of others using it?
    Don't they have any imagination?
    Surely Jack can't be the only name considered masculine in the USA, what about all the other poor sods who haven't been named Jack, are they considered 'less than' by definition? (ooh feeling feisty)

    I did wonder if it had anything to do with JFK and the adoration Americans seem to have had for him?

    I think they do the same thing with the name Hank or Henry.

    How many good names are there for males? They kinda all suck...

    They either are the same few repetitive ones used over and over and over and over... christopher, joeseph, charles, patrick, etc, most of which are ones from the bible.

    They're bland, they're boring, and EVERYONE has heard them before...

    Jack is like any other name for males really, it's generic, it's overused, and it's boring.

    Yeu poor guys...

    I swear, if I ever end up having kids and get a male, I flat out REFUSE to name them something ordinary. They're getting something epic like Saschael, or Kotra, or a mythological name like Daedelus, or maybe one from fiction.

    Regardless, there are the odd guys out there with cool names... one instructor at the school is named Thor XD Though... for a short, balding relatively round guy it's not that fitting a name, but he really is awesome at whot he does =3

    Still, names for guys suck generally. There's not many of them, and the ones there are, are reused way too much. I'm not surprised "jack" is used alot. Check any other name. Try "Paul" or "Larry" or whotever... >.< Bet yeu'll get the same results...

    And what's up with Hollywood and giving Dutch characters German names? Every time a Dutch person is in a Hollywood movie, they name them Heinrich or something. Is it that hard to find out what names are really Dutch?
