Meaning:son of Jack
Who’s Jack? He’s the guy with the cool son, Jax. The latter became popular on the baby-naming front in 2005 and has been steadily climbing. It sounds like a nickname—and for some, it’s a shortened version of Jackson or Jaxon—but for many babies, it’s their full first name. An American creation, this phonetically respelled name has plenty of positives, including that it's easy to pronounce. It was also the name of the main character on “Sons of Anarchy” played Charlie Hunnam.
