Ah, I see. Shall wander over there soonish.
Aw, c'mon...surely Jack be Nimble and Jack Jumped Over the Candlestick are the same dude? If not, fine then, I submit 'Jack Be Quick' to round out the trio.
For my newie, how about Jack in a Box?
but ... maybe they are a triumvirite!
and who is Jack Dandy?
anyway, did we have Jack out of 24 yet?
I prefer to live in a country that's small, and old, and where no one would ever have the NERVE to wear a cape in public, whether they could leap tall buildings in a single bound or not.
the parrot... ...gets tiresome.
the parrot... ...i ate him.
Jack Dandy was one of the Jacks in GYB- the silver-white haired fellow, tried to shoot Bod.
But I'd heard the name before (also known as Jack-a-Dandy)- it means a fellow who thinks himself right smartly dressed...in fact, google says: "Jack`-a-dan´dy
n. 1. A little dandy; a little, foppish, impertinent fellow. "
Nope, no Jack Bauer yet, not that I recall. Our list is up to 20 with this post though, wooh! (I'm only counting one of the triumvirate Jacks-with-nimbleness-and-candlesticks though, sorry)
My next one is...Jackanapes.
Not 'a' Jack to be precise, but it is a name to hang on someone, like most 'Jack' names. I came across it in a kids' book years ago.
Here's a definition for ye-
1. A conceited or impudent person.
2. A mischievous child.
3. Archaic A monkey or an ape.

c'mon, it's pronounced 'Jack'...
Hmm, some context would be nice, to prove that you're not just adding the verb or noun 'jackknife' there
Apparently 'Jackknife' is a character from 'Superjail!' though... I'm sure that's who you meant, right? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superjail!
Jack Fool. From page 269 of TGYB: "More know Jack Fool than Jack Fool knows".
No. I really meant jackknife. But I think it fits though. As would jackhammer. Both make awesome names.
Erm..so we're just making them up now? I thought "Jacks from nursery rhymes and fables are preferred, but other jacks are acceptable so long as they are wholly fictional." meant fictional that already exist, not names we make up...I could make up 'Jack the Fisherman', in that case.
I thought sticking to existing fictional Jacks was the idea...
Next one: Jack Skellington! Can't believe I didn't think of him before now. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pumpkin_King
Jack in the Green is a participant in traditional English May Day parades and other May celebrations, who wears a large, foliage-covered, garland-like framework, usually pyramidal or conical in shape, which completely covers their body from head to foot. The name is also applied to the garland itself.
Jack-In-Irons is a giant of Yorkshire lore who haunts lonely roads. He is covered with chains and wears the heads of his victims. He wields a large, spiked club.

Sorry, I didn't realise putting pictures in was bad?

"Fairy tales are more than true — not because they tell us dragons exist, but because they tell us dragons can be beaten."
Argh, all these Jacks without context!
For the sake of people like me who aren't well-edumacated, please include a few words on who yer Jack be?
