11 Comments

  1. Hes a great kid

  2. He’s wild

  3. I love the name Jaxon but wanted it to be different than the usual Jackson

  4. My 12 yr old picked out the name and he has his dads middle name..

  5. I was named to have my dad’s initials and I have always really liked that. We weren’t interested in our baby taking my husband’s name but really liked the idea of him/her having his initials. Before I even knew it was a boy, the name Jaxson really resonated with me and my husband and I both have J names. We never even discussed girl names. So he really has been Jaxson from the very beginning! I like unique spellings, so we steered away from the traditional Jackson.

  6. Named after my father his name is jack

  7. I love the nickname Jax

  8. I love my sons name Jaxson Simon David Gooden. My sons first name actually came from my older sister and I liked the name when she brought it to me and I just added my daddy’s first and middle name and my maiden name for his last name and that’s how I came up with my son name.

  9. My husband liked the name Jack (as in Jack Bauer), but I thought it was too plain, so we agreed on Jaxson. Only dislike is its more popular than we realized. I wanted a more unique name.

  10. We always have had a hard time agreeing on boys names so we got the family involved in this one. I really wanted Dean as a middle name, after my late uncle. My husband liked the nickname potential (Jax) It flowed well, so we picked it!

  11. I picked Jaxson in 2008 just before it shot up on the charts. I liked it because it was strong name and had a cool nickname of Jax.
