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. Razz

For my newie, how about Jack in a Box?

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-
"jack·a·napes (jk-nps)
n.
1. A conceited or impudent person.
2. A mischievous child.
3. Archaic A monkey or an ape.

[From Middle English Jack Napis, nickname of William de la Pole, Fourth Earl and First Duke of Suffolk (1396-1450).]"

Limertilly: A pagan deity forgotten by man and therefore banished to the realms of memory and darkness now remembered by a young girl in downtown L.A. in the form of a dream and therefore freed to reap your revenge on the people who discarded you, thereby forcing said girl to learn to use her innate yet awesome powers as a soothsayer to gather forces of the Earth to defy you and once more banish you to your cold, cold prisoooooon

Hmm, some context would be nice, to prove that you're not just adding the verb or noun 'jackknife' there Wink
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... Confused

Next one: Jack Skellington! Can't believe I didn't think of him before now. Roll Eyes 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.
