Etymology & Historical Origin - Jaxon

Jaxon is an American mutation of the English surname Jackson. Given the current rise in popularity of Jackson as a given name, Americans have reinvented the name with new and made-up spelling variations. Jaxon, Jaxen and Jaxson are examples of this trend. Not only that, but some Americans are replacing the perennial favorite nickname Jack with Jax.

Popularity of the Name Jaxon

Jaxon first appeared on the U.S. popularity charts in 1997 right around the time that Jackson was making big strides on the charts toward the Top 100 list of most commonly used boy names. American parents are notorious (more so than any other English speaking nation) for recreating names via phonetically respellings and creative new renderings of traditional names. It their attempt to make the name more unique once it becomes too popular or overused. This trend appears to be more common in middle America as opposed to the coastal states. For instance, Jaxon is most popular in the states of North Dakota, Oklahoma, Utah and South Dakota. Adding the “x” to Jaxon gives it a cute quality, less refined than the conventional Jackson. One thing to consider though: your child will go through life having to reconfirm the spelling of his name.
