Etymology & Historical Origin - Jax

Jax is a newly invented name distinct to the United States. The name was created in reaction to the popularity of such names as Jack and Jackson. There is no etymological origin and therefore no meaning. It’s more or less a phonetically rendered respelling of Jacks (a children’s playground game).

Popularity of the Name Jax

Jax first appeared on the male naming charts in 2005 – clearly a brand new 21st century coinage. It follows the popularity of Jaxson and Jaxon (which followed the popularity of Jackson). Jackson, in turn, followed the popularity of Jack combined with the trend that uses surnames as forenames. Jaxson, Jaxon and Jaxen are attempts to be unique through creative respelling practices. Jax just developed as a pet form of these made-up names, and then eventually became an independently given name in its own right. It’s cute, but almost too cute, if you get what we mean.
