Jack and the Bean Stalk. Jack Jumps Over the Candlestick. Jack and Jill went up the Hill. Jack Sprat. Little Jack Horner.
Do you know Jack or at least why Jack seems to be in so many fairy tales?
Though the name 'Jack' has a very complex origin it's meaning is very simple. 'Jack' basically means 'guy.' Some guy jumped over the caldlestick, a guy and a girl (Jill is slang for a young woman) went up a hill.
How many 'Jacks' have you heard of other than in fairy tales? Jack-in-the-box, Jack-of-all-trades...
