Jack and John sibset?

Hi there, pregnant with our fourth and team green. We have Brody, Jack and Rosalie. We potentially like the name John for a boy but is it odd to have both Jack and John considering Jack is a common nickname for John?

    I think they are too close. Do you have any other frontrunners?

    Glad to know I’m not the only one, my husband was convinced they are very different lol. Struggling with boy names in general, we still have quite a bit of time left!
  • Um no, as I know Jack's that go as John and vice versa.......kind if odd to have brothers, though honestly I dont understand how Jack is a NN for john and I feel they are two entirely different names. 
  • Wayyyy too close IMO
