I prefer August but I feel like Alec goes better with Jack.

Me too.

Jack and Alec have that same nicknamey all American boy feel.

I feel like Alec has a very similar feel to Jack but I actually find them difficult to say together I think because of the hard 'k' sound at the end of both, I find myself tripping over them. Of course that may not be a problem for the OP/other people.

Oooh, I love August James :)

I like the name August best. The last name matters more for sound than the middle. So if Alec is your favorite then whether or not August or James is the middle should be based on what you love.

I think that August James is better, and i believe August goes better with Jack. But both names are lovely.

Thank you.

My guess is you actually prefer Alec to August, because when paired, you pick Alec as the first name.  I prefer August James very slightly, because I have a hard time saying Alec in way that is different from Alex.

August James, hands down. 

I grew up with an Alec. It was really an uphill battle against being called Alex.

Good point.  Thank you.

I like Alec as a brother to Jack - it has the same feel as a name to me. August is a fine name but feels more refined than Jack. I wouldn't do Alec August if you might have another boy later and want to use August as a first name.

Great suggestion!

I like Alec James the best! I just don’t like August in my opinion.
