What do you think of the name..

If we have a boy, we want to name him Jack (Partially after my grandpa). But I feel like the name is too short and the only extentions of the name I have found are Jacques and Jackson, and I don't like either. I really like boy names that end with a 'ley' sound.. what do you think of Jackley or Jacksley? Too out there?

  • Jackson sounds better than any you mentioned. I think Jacksley and Jackley sound like they really don't fit together. But if they work in your mind, don't be bothered by what any of us think. :)

  • My sons name is Jack. I would go with Jackley before I would even think about Jacksley. But Jackley will get him alot of jokes like bruce lee but its Jack lee. Thats what I first thought of.

  • Jack is extremely popular right now. I do like Jackson though. The other names sound made up.

  • I personally don't care for either name. I like Jack but don't be influenced by any one else you should pick a name because you picked it and you like it. I named my son Jayden and a lot of people said I shouldn't name him that because it sounds girley but I picked that name anyways because I like it.

  • Not liking the ley, sley thing to be honest.

    What about thinking of a really cool middle name to compliment it?

  • it sounds like you didn't like the first part so added a bunch of letters.

    I like Jack, just add a strong middle name to complement it and it will sound great.

  • Have you though about using Jack as a middle name and choosing something you really love for the first name you would still be honoring you grandpa
