Etymology & Historical Origin - Daxton

Daxton appears to be a new American name invention, possibly the transferred use of a surname. We do know that Dax is an early English surname with Anglo-Germanic origins derived from a nickname. The Germanic word “dachs” means “badger” (a burrowing nocturnal animal related to the weasel, with strong claws, short legs and fat bodies). The nickname was most common in the ancient Anglo-Saxon kingdom of East Anglia (mostly populated by the Angles, a Germanic tribe from modern-day Northern Germany). It would have been used as a sobriquet describing a person with nocturnal habits or one with a streak of gray or fair hair against black (like the stripped black/white markings of a badger’s head). The Olde English word “tūn” meant “town, settlement”. If we piece the name together this way, then Daxton would mean “badger town”. Although we’re fairly certain that Daxton is an invented name so, like the famous YouTube honey badger, you may not “give a s**t”.

Popularity of the Name Daxton

In the race to find unique sounding surnames to bestow as given names, some American parent probably made up the name Daxton and then others followed suit. This name did not appear on the American male naming charts until a few years back in 2007. It’s a name pretty rarely used, but it has grown in the short time of its existence. It’s following the trend of other surnamey given names with the “-ton” suffix such as Colton, Easton, Ashton, Preston, Braxton, Weston and Dayton. Even Paxton, Maxton and Jaxton are on the charts! Daxton is just another sheep following this popular modern-day herd.
