  1. I had Jaxon in march. Hes my 3rd. We picked Jaxon Cole cause we needed another “J” name n I thought it was cool.

  2. How: I’ve heard it from Vanderpump Rules. A show on bravo lol

    Why: ^ thought the name sounded cool and different. Both my boy’s have J names and practically all J names r in my family. Wanted him to have his own, unique name

  3. I personally just liked the name
    Looks and sounds cool
    My family has all the J names and I wanted something no one else had.

  4. We chose Jaxon to honor my side of the family since he took my husband’s last name. My grandfather’s name was Jack, so we just named him a variation.

  5. I chose the name Jaxon because it fit great with his middle name Lonzo after his uncle that passed away in 2016.

  6. I like the name and I love the meaning. It was a rough pregnancy for me and his name means God has been gracious.

  7. My maternal grandmothers last name is Jackson and I believe they were wonderful namesakes to share with my baby boy.
