Gender: M Meaning of Axl: "father of peace" Origin of Axl: Variation of Axel, Scandinavian version of Absalom

Guns 'n' Roses musician Axl (born William) Rose created this name by dropping a vowel, a la Barbra Streisand. Most parents would prefer the traditional AXEL, though celebrity parents Fergie and Josh Duhamel deliberately chose the Axl spelling to honor her rock hero.
