Thread: "X" fatigue?

I read on another name blog 2 days in a row, concerns about overuse of the letter X, particularly in boys' names.
I'm 38 weeks & my boy name forever has been Lennox. It concerns me that a) as a name nerd I never really noticed "X" overuse until it was pointed out and b) People throwing "x" where it doesn't belong (Jaxon etc) dilutes the enjoyment I get out of my baby name. It seems unfair, Angelina Jolie got THREE kids with "x" names and now suddenly it's passe?
So my question is this: do you think a kid with an "x" in his name will automatically be associated with this time period? Is that a bad thing? Have the high profile "x" name kids ruined the "x" the way Britney ruined Britney, etc?Latest list:
Girl: Lulu, Charlie, Fleur, France, Holiday
Boy: Lennox (Lex), Hugo
Expecting my first.

I think that the statement "a kid with an "x" in his name will automatically be associated with this time period" is a bit of a generalization.
To some extent, kids with newly popular/uncommon or names with Random x's in it will be dated.
Brangelina has ruined some good names and createdd a trend.
HOWEVER... I do not think this to be the case with classic names like Lennox.
Lennox and Knox, I find to be classic, classy names which predate the era and definately will not fall into the category of Jaxon, Maddox or even the female name Pax.
Lennox is classic and I think you should use it.I like distinct, memorable, exotic and preferably non-popular names. The kids with unique names wore them so well when I was younger and never got lost in the crowd.
