Keep baby’s eye on the ball and their heart in the game with the name Buxton. This gender-neutral moniker derives from an English surname. Buxton is a combination of the Old English term bugan, translating to “to bow,” and the suffix stanes, signifying “stones,” creating the meaning “bowing stones.” It can also be traced back to the personal name Bucc and the term tun, which means “settlement.” A famous Buxton who may inspire baby is Byron Buxton, the Minnesota Twins baseball player. This talented hitter has been called the best baseball player in the world, but maybe baby could outdo him. Buxton is the perfect name for your up-and-coming ace.
