We'd like to honour my father in law, but need a female name. Not Jacqueline please!

Jakiema that should say.

Or Kay - Jak backwards

Jax Neena would be fab! (jacks grand-daughter!) smile

Jax

I've actually seen Jaxx but I think that is a game character.

Jaycee?

Jakiemaapparently means 'brings others together' which would be a nice meaning as well.

It's funny, I'm not keen on Jack for a boy but I know of a Jaque (girl) and I really like it!

I knew a Jackamena once (not sure on the spelling though!)

Sorry, just realised that you didn't want Jacqueline.

Jazz?

'Jenna' is also a great name.

Jack orginated as a nickname for john, so I think john-type names would be lovely and there are alot to choose from such as 'janet'

Personally I love Joanna, as somebody above mentioned.

I worked with a lady once named Jakarta. Jack would be a sweet nickname for that.

Nena means grand daughter in Hebrew would you like that sort of tribute to him? grin X

There's a famous Vogue model called Jacquetta Wheeler. I rather like it.

FreedomOfTheTess Sat 16-Mar-13 09:03:55

That first one should read Gia not Gig!!!

Just Jackie perhaps?

Coconutty Fri 15-Mar-13 18:30:10

Jacinthe

BeeBopDingALing Fri 15-Mar-13 18:29:01

What about Jac? Has it got to be the first name? Jac would be good as a middle name then you could have something else as the first name.

WormCanner Fri 15-Mar-13 18:20:22

Isn't Jacqueline derived from James anyway?

CruCru Fri 15-Mar-13 18:09:26

Jacqueline.

Shr0edinger Fri 15-Mar-13 17:56:12

Siún (Shoon) short for siobhan. but siobhan is Joan I think. Well, what about Joan1? that's more like John

Shr0edinger Fri 15-Mar-13 17:55:16

lol at Jackette! that made me snigger!!

Can I suggest then, in that style, Jackal

Shr0edinger Fri 15-Mar-13 17:54:37

Jane is lovely. Johanna?

DukeSilver Fri 15-Mar-13 17:07:16

I quite like Jack for a girl, especially as a middle name.

Hadn't occurred to me before, but Jacinthe in French is Hyacinth in English.
