Tragic name.

Samsonite Says:


A cheesy, cheesy name.

Ziggy2112 Says:


I find it weird when I meet a little Jaxon whose parents named him after Sons of Anarchy. A murderous, cheating, gangmember would not be my choice of namesake.

Rosie2525 Says:


Please, just spell it "Jackson"! If you "want something different", find another name. Honestly, when I see this name, I really think the mother cannot spell. Don't give your kid this name. It hurts my eyes...

peachysugarbuns Says:


This was the default name and spelling for baby boys born between 2008 - 2012 in the rural town I live in. Meh.

Cerulean_ Says:


I still don't understand why people feel the need to replace letters with "x". It is not original, and at this point feels tired.

Carly Says:


Ive just named my baby boy jaxon! My maden name was jackson and being the only girl in my family it was nice to use it and not be the only 1 not to carry the jackson name :)
I wanted to use jaxon rather then jackson coz it looks more like a 1st name spesh after writing jackson for 25 years
I loved my 2nd name and was sad to see it go so this way I don't have to :) win win

violetgray Says:


Their is a little Jaxon in the preschool group I work with. He is a very cute little boy but he seems to have an obsession with the letter "x". Every time the letter "x" is brought up, whether its the alphabet, a story we are reading, he has to call out "Thats in my name!" Every time we write his name he has to watch us to make sure we remember the "x". When he meets someone new he always has to tell them that there is an "x" in his name. I can't help but wonder if that comes from having to correct the spelling of his name all the time or his parents drilling into him that his name is spelled differently than the traditional Jackson.

Daphodil Says:


I like Jaxon. It's cool, has a badass vibe to it, the nickname Jax, and I love the 'X'. I'm actually surprised at myself for liking it -- it's the type of name I would normally dismiss in favour of the original variation (Jackson in this case).

madmaddie Says:


I hate spelling variations.

Binz Says:


If someone spells their kid's name like that, I'm just going to assume that they want to be "cool parents" and aren't thinking about what that name is going to look like on a high school diploma.

Hylian Wizard Says:


I personally love Jaxon, but this website also lists Jaxsin, Jaxson, Jaxen, and Jaxun. Hideous! I mean, why have X and S? X replaces the CKS sound, so the is already covered.And sknce when did Sin make the same sound as Son?

Guest Says:


I prefer the original but this could be a lot worse like Jaksyn *cringing at the thought*

Hylian Wizard Says:


I love love love this name. Many people don't like it, because it's acreative spelling of Jackson, but I think Jaxon is much cooler. I'm surprised to see its popuarity in the New top 50. At first I thought I made it up, LOL. Jaxon is my favorote boy name. If I had a baby, and he was a boy I would name him Jaxon.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


Not that I was talking about really ever using it. It is a bit tacky

Plutophelia Says:


just spell it jackson.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


I love this spelling as shown here (Jaxon) but I despise the unnecessary "Jaxson" spelling. I wish this name wasn't so popular.
