  • John is the name for Jane. You could use Jonathon. James and Jacob are related, if you like either of them. I like Jay, too.

  • Jane is the feminine form of John.

  • Yep, I just found the same thing in English speaking form Jane is feminization of John

  • Ditto Jodie118, John is the masculine version of Jean.

    Just wondering, though, why you wouldn't choose a male in your family to derive his heritage, legacy, name from. He's hopefully going to grow up to be a manly man and (no offense to your mom) usually connects his identity with other men as his role models. I am sure your mom is so very important in your life, as is evidenced by you incorporating her name into the girl's names, which is very natural, I think. Just wondering, no big deal. PS-I like the name James.....
