Fox is typically a boy’s name of British origin, which naturally borrows its etymology from the bushy-tailed wild animal. A cute and quirky name, Dax is in close company with other standalone short forms like Dax, Max, and Jax. Sleek and smart, just like its animal counterpart, Fox is a sure winner for parents who adore a short and punchy name for their little one.
