Other Origin(s):German
Meaning:From Saxony; Knife
Although this moniker may remind you of a jazzy instrument, Saxe is a boy's name that surpasses even the invention of the saxophone. Originating from the German state of Saxony, Saxe literally means "from Saxony." The people of this region named their homeland after a distinctive knife they commonly used, known as a seax. Between 410 and 1066, some of these Saxons emigrated to Britain where they became known as Anglo-Saxons. Following this era, the Norman conquest ushered in a widespread French influence, giving rise to the Middle English name Saxe. Particularly fitting for a child with English and German roots, your little Seax is bound to travel far and wide, guided by the sharp edge of their name.
