you had better name your main character “Jack.”
A few months ago, my friends and I noticed that a large quantity of action heroes had the name Jack. I thought I’d share an abridged list with you.
Jack Bauer, 24
Captain Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy
Jack Shepard, Lost
Jack Aubrey, Master and Commander and Aubrey-Maturin Series
Jack Ryan, The Hunt for Red October and others
Jack Harkness, Doctor Who and Torchwood
Jack O’Neill, Stargate SG-1
This is merely a brief selection of Heroes Named Jack. Save yourself the trouble of coming up with new names for your action hero. “Jack” is perfect.
