  • "We named our son, Jaxon. I loved how Jackson sounded. My husband wanted to make sure the nickname was Jax. Also, his middle name is Lawrence after my late father so I didn?t want to give him three last names. I do love how Jaxon Lawrence sounds and reads but everyone spells it like Jaxson and it does bother me. I will need to live with it but didn?t know it would bother me so much. He does seem like a Jaxon to me." Dec. 28, 2020: Report as inappropriate

  • "My sons name is Jaxon Mateo. I absolutely love this name and the spelling! I?ve recently started to see people naming their boys Jaxon now." Jul. 17, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "Love it! I am expecting and plan to name my son Jaxson. Jax as a nickname sounds so cute and modern. My husband loves the name and I thought it sounded strange at first, but now I really like it. It also combines well with the middle and last name." Mar. 7, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "Our son was born in 1994 and we named him jaxon thomas.. now he hates the name claiming its infantile and stupid.. makes me sad, because I've always liked his name. Unique just like him-! Well, now that he's 18 he's doing a legal name change to Jack.. I love him no matter what! He's a great guy." Jul. 8, 2013: Report as inappropriate

  • "I have always loved the name Jackson but didn't want my son to be called Jack. So I thought I would spell it differently. Little did I know it was so popular. But I love the name and the spelling anyway. I also graduated with a girl who named her son Jaxon. And we did even know about it until we reconnected on Facebook. And my friends call him Action Jaxon and it suits him perfectly." Aug. 3, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "My son is due 12/21/ oldest son suggested the name "Jackson"...then I decided that this spelling (Jaxon) is a tad more "hip". Can't wait to meet MY Jaxon <3" Jul. 16, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "My Jaxon was born May 30, 2007. EVERYONE mis-spells his name, but it really doesn't bother me. It's funny to see their reaction when I correct them. Everyone always comments how much they like his name." May. 20, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "my grandson is named Jaxson David, and we call him Jax" Jan. 4, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "I am naming my son Jaxson. I love the name Jackson, but I think the spelling is to formal and dated. Jaxson is a more current version of a classic strong name. I like the shortened name of Jax too. I can't wait to say his name over and over again!" Aug. 26, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My son is Jaxon and he was born in he's 15 and NOBODY had this name until the last 10 years or so...he is a unique kid and when I was pregnant we liked the name Jackson, his great aunt said "this is going to be a special kid and he should have a special spelling"...she came up with it! We pronounce is Jackson...He loves it because he is the only person he knows with the name spelled this way...people do have to be corrected all the time with the spelling for sure!" Jul. 20, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "My new grandson is called Jaxon. Jack is a common name in my family, my father was a Jack and I have Jack as a miidle name. It seemed a bit twee to have another Jack and we came up with Jaxon. His maternal great grandfather was Ronald Cooper and Jaxon has Cooper as his middle name. Jaxson Cooper, we think it a great combination which honors both his great grand dads. Unfortunately his great grand mothers names are Mavis and Adelaide respectively, so it is unlikely that, should he ever have a sister, they will be similarly honored. Ah well, those are the breaks." Apr. 22, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "Will be the name of my new grandson when he is born. Everyone loves it, because Jackson has become too popular where we live. I'm sure if people don't see it in print, they will probably spell it wrong. But we all love it so much, we don't care. We'll just correct them." Mar. 16, 2010: Report as inappropriate

  • "If i have a baby boy i will consider this one of my top choices. but i would spell it Jaxson, I love the nic "jax" it is A strong name for a boy...... imean vs. elijah or noah...... Jaxson is a great name for a baby and a man as well." Jan. 7, 2010: Report as inappropriate

I only found out about the show a few months ago...and it seems like its got a HUGE following. And two, I named him Jaxon, because whenever I did something stupid, my dad would say, "nice one Jackson." Just thought the twist on spelling would be different. My daughter, due in a few weeks will be named Lahna Marie." Nov. 25, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "HATE the name Jaxon...or Jaxson...or Jaxin. Such a trendy way to spell it. Every mother I know who picks this name always says "I wanted a unique name for my child!" Well my brother's name is Jaxon and he hates his name. My parents regretted naming him Jaxon when he was about 7 and saw that folks thought the use of the letter X was very silly. He is now 17 and he plans on changing his name on his 18th birthday. We ALL think he should. Please, parents, putting an X in your kid's name does not make the name cool or makes it silly." May. 7, 2014: Report as inappropriate

  • "I think the spelling is very cool looking, and Jackson doesn't sound too shabby, but this name is too trendy for my taste. It's not very unique if the name is only a few years old and it has almost as many "Jaxons" being born as there are a classic name like "James" per year. Be careful with this name, don't trap your kid!" Dec. 4, 2016: Report as inappropriate
