  • my son's middle name is Ray. if you decide to go with Ray,i would spell it Rae for a girl. to me it's more feminine. just my opinion though!

  • My sons name is Jack, he is 2 and we get compliments everywhere we go. I think Jack is coming back in so to speak, our older kids call him Jack Jack from the movie The Incredibles

  • Why not Jacklyn Toni?

  • I have a hard time with "Jack" - it's my ex-husband's name, but also my father's name! I know it's very popular. You should pick whatever name(s) you like and not worry about your families. They'll get used to the name.

    That said, I'm not wild about Jack just doesn't flow right. But it's not like you're going to be calling him that all the time and like I said, if you like it, use it. Congrats!
