WHAT'S IN A NAME? FOR HARBAUGHS, DEFINITELY A 'J'

The Associated Press Published:

Jack and Jackie Harbaugh weren't trying to be cute when they gave all three of their kids names that start with the letter "J."

John, the eldest, was a given. He's named after Jack, whose given name is also John. Jim's name came from Jackie's doctor in Perrysburg, Ohio, who also was named Jim.

"They came in and said, 'What are you going to name this baby?' and I said that I liked the name Jim," Jackie Harbaugh said.

As for Joani, their third child and only daughter, her full name is Joani Marie and it comes from Jackie Harbaugh's mother's middle name and the first name of Jack Harbaugh's mother.

So it really wasn't planned, this whole family of J Harbaughs?

"No," Jackie Harbaugh said. "We aren't very creative."
