Characteristics of Jaxson
Etymology & Historical Origin - Jaxson
Jaxson is a newly invented spelling of the more traditional name Jackson. Like “Jaxon” or “Jaxen”, Jaxson is a very modern version of the old surname Jackson; such respellings are distinct to the United States vs. other English speaking nations. Jackson itself is the transferred use of a surname which, quite obviously, means "son of Jack." Jackson originated as an English (and sometimes Scottish) surname from a nickname. In the Middle Ages, Jack became a pet form of the name John, which comes from the Hebrew “Yôḥanan” meaning ‘God is gracious.’ After the Norman Conquest of England, surnames became necessary for reasons of identification for taxation. In this case, the “son of Jack” became Jackson. In the United States, respellings became trendy due to the popularity of Jackson as a forename.
Popularity of the Name Jaxson
The name Jaxson first entered the U.S. popularity charts in 1999. This was one year after Jackson achieved a position on the Top 100 list of most favored boy’s name. In response to the growing popularity of Jackson, other made-up spellings of the name (attempting to be phonetically correct) began to emerge. Jaxon came first in 1997 followed by Jaxson and then Jax and Jaxen. We have to admit: we’re not the hugest fans of made-up spellings. For one, your child will be going through life saying “That’s Jackson. J-A-X-S-O-N.” We hear parents say all the time, “Big deal.” But our survey of people with strange spelling variations actually say it is a big deal. Just something to consider. Otherwise, we respect your decision.
