Jones Debacle

Looking for a boy name - common last name - Jones

Love the name Jack but need a middle name too. Conflicted on going with a common middle name or unique middle name as the first and last names are common.

Any input is appreciated!

Re: Jones Debacle

  • Jack Jones doesn't really go together well in my opinion, it sounds like a c-list action hero. 

    Maybe Jonathan Jones nn Jack? Are there any other names you like?

  • C list action hero made me LOL. I'm pretty set on Jack - one of those names I liked even before there was a real baby involved. :D

    Now that is a super funny to me cause that dude has 2.4 million followers!

    That's kind of the problem with such a common last name as Jones. There's probably 100+ people who have the same exact first/last/middle name and that includes both cool and lame people.

    Loving this input. Making me laugh!

    Don't get me wrong, that guy is hilarious. And I really don't mind Jack, it's a real name and suits a grown up as well as a child. I feel like you need a longer middle name. Do you have anything family related that could work?

    Edit - I have a friend called Jeremy Jones. He goes by Jez. Jez Jones is quite possibly the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. Jack is much better than that.
  • I think I'd probably go with a longer middle name to balance out the short names:

    Jack Francis
    Jack Lawrence
    Jack William
    Jack Christopher
    Jack Gregory
    Jack Edward
    Jack Alexander
    Jack Terrence
    Jack Benjamin

  • I don't think Jack Jones is terrible. At the very least it is a legitimate name and is spelled correctly! My mom's maiden name is Jones and first name is one syllable and starts with a J. Growing up I always thought her name was very cute (but we have a weird last name so maybe I just wished for something more common LOL). Either way, if your heart is set on Jack, just use a longer middle name, as recommended above. Love the suggestions of Jack Edward and Jack Francis.

  • Well if you like Jack, then pick a more unique middle name. Jones is a dope last name ...so it works out for you.

  • I don't think it's bad at all, but I think when you have such a common last name it's a good idea to go a little more original with the first name. My BFF's DH has a very common FN and LN and he's always getting calls from creditors for other people. Just one example but those are the kinds of things that come up.

    Jack is a great name, on my list too! Jack&Jones is the name of a clothing store/brand in Europe though so that's what jumps to my mind!

    Since Jack and Jones are both so common and short I would go for a longer less common middle name. These are the ones I can think of, off the top of my head
    Jack Augustus Jones
    Jack Benjamin Jones
    Jack Emerson Jones
    Jack Broderick Jones
    Jack Emmanuel Jones
    Jack Christopher Jones
    Jack Alberto Jones
    Jack Dominick Jones

  • I really like PP suggestion of Jack Francis. Just interesting enough to break up the two more common names, but has a nice ring and isn't a mouthful. Good luck deciding! We are having a boy as well, but no first or middle name found yet!

    I'd probably pick a first name that isn't very common but still legit.
  • Jack Jones isn't bad. It does remind me of what a comic book action hero might be named, but not in a bad way.

    I know a Jonathan Jones, funny enough!

    What about Brandon Jones?
