This isn't phonetic. I would say jacks-son. Two S sounds.

I love both Jackson and Jaxon, but this spelling bothers me, and I can't believe how popular it's getting. You don't need the "s", because the "x" has it covered. To me, that is so obvious.

Yes, thank you! It's heartwarming to see that others are realizing this as well. I knew 2 Jaxsons when I was a preschool teacher and I simply did not understand it.

I agree

Idk, like Theodora_Phoenix put, the pronunciation does break down differently with the spelling. But unlike how this seems to bother some, it doesn't me since I see each spelling is a different name to me rather than a phonetics error. Although it's not a name I really like, Jaxson is not the same as Jackson or Jaxon to me. That 'redundant' xs combo adds extra emphasis to the S sound, so you should need to pronounce Jaks and Son as two words to be saying it right. It's not the same as Jaks on or Jack Son.

>>But for those who want to insist it's Jackson but with an X instead of CK, then yeah it's a spelling error- you named your kid one thing but spelled it incorrectly for the name you wanted. As if you went with Alix but meant Alex. Should of just chose Jackson.

Thank you! I completely agree with your comment.

Guest Says:


Redundant. Why can't people spell?

flora_kate Says:


This name reminds me of Alexsander, with the x and the s next to each other like that. Why not go with Jaxon if you want to be creative? It at least makes sense.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


This is not phonetic.
Jackson is pronounced Jack-son. X makes the CKS sound, so there shouldn't be another S or it's pronounced Jacks son.
It's not. Please pick X or cks.
Jackson= Jack son
Jaxon- Jacks on
Jaxson- Jaks son
