Jackson: Boys Baby Name Meaning

Jackson Baby Name

The name Jackson means ‘son of Jack’.

Jackson is the transferred use of a patronymic surname and means ‘son of Jack’. Jack is an English diminutive of John or a diminutive of Jacques which is the French form of Jacob.

Among English speakers, the nickname Jack has always been associated with John. John originated from the Hebrew ‘Yochanan’ meaning ‘Yahweh is gracious’. 

The surname first appeared in the 14th century in both England and Scotland and was variously recorded as Jackessone, Jacson, Jakson, Jagson and Jaxon.

It is also one of the earliest surnames to appear in the New World (America) among colonizers of the early 17th century. 

Jack also became a slang term for ‘man, male’ in general.

As a result, Jack was frequently used as the title boy character in fairy tales (Jack & Jill, Jack and the Beanstalk, Jack Sprat, Little Jack Horner, etc).

As a masculine given name, Jackson has been in circulation among Americans for over a century, most likely in homage to the 7th U.S. President and war hero Andrew Jackson or in the South to recognize the Confederate general Thomas ‘Stonewall’ Jackson.

Famous people who share the name Jackson:

Artist Jackson Pollock and musician Jackson Browne.
