X marks the spot, as the saying goes. Jax is a fresh and upbeat choice for a parent seeking a boy's name with the X factor! This contemporary choice means "son of Jack" and is a fresh take on an old favorite. It sounds like a nickname, and for some, it’s a shortened version of Jackson or Jaxon. An American creation, this phonetically respelled name has plenty of positives, including its easy pronunciation. It was also the name of the main character on Sons of Anarchy, played by Charlie Hunnam.
