Cook up some fun with this Scottish and Anglo-Saxon name. Baxter, a boy's name, comes from the occupational surname that was used by bakers. It's derived from the early Middle English word bakstere, and the Old English bæcere and its meaning is, quite simply, "baker." This name might be several centuries old, but the "x" adds an easy contemporary touch. It still offers a certain amount of old-fashioned appeal, though, so you can have the best of both worlds.
