    Question Giaxon Blu

    I know a lot of people dislike "alternative" spellings, but usually don't care as long as it works for them.

    We have 8 children and are pregnant with our 9th. Our #1 rule is that they all have different 1st initials. I LOVE the name Jackson, but we already used "J" for a name.

    We came up with an Italian alternative spelling for "Jackson" - ie Giaxon.

    We were originally going to use family names for his middle name but they wouldn't have really worked. They would have been:
    Giaxon Michael or Giaxon Andrew

    Reversing the names only conjures up a singer and a historical figure, LOL So we came up with Blu for his middle name.

    I absolutely LOVE the name now. Giaxon Blu! I don't feel like it is TOO out there, even with the spelling, and the names flow well together.

    Thoughts?

    Sorry but I don't think Giaxon is the Italian version of Jackson. This just looks like the female name of Gia added to "xon" so I think it's too feminine for a boy. If you love Jackson, then use it despite repeating an initial. You will save your son a lot of heartache in the future with misspellings and even mispronunciations. I like the pp's suggestion of Giacomo. Here are similar Italian names.

    Geronimo - A sacred or holy name.
    Giacobbe - Italian form of Jacob. Held by the heel.
    Giacomo - The supplanter.
    Gianni - Italian form of John. God is gracious.
    Gino - Short for names ending with Gino.
    Giordano - Flowing down, as in the River Jordan.
    Giovanni - God is gracious.
    Giraldo - A spear warrior. Also see Garrett and Gerard.
    Giulio - A Roman family name, possibly meaning youthful. Born in July.
    Giuseppe - Italian form of Joseph. God shall add.
    Gugliehno - A strong and resolute protector.
    Guido - The wide one, or from the wood.

    Jack is often a nn of John so here are some Italian versions.

    Giambattista
    Gianbattista
    Giancarlo
    Giandomenico
    Gianfranco
    Gianluca
    Gianluigi
    Gianmarco
    Gianmaria
    Gianmario
    Gianpaolo
    Gianpiero

    Sorry, but I really dislike this spelling. There are plenty of great Italian names, as mentioned above. Or, if you want other names similar to Jackson, there's...

    Ashton
    Carter
    Conlan
    Dixon
    Morrison
    Paxton
    Weston

    Like any of those?
