US Popularity:7146
Meaning:from Saxony
Saxons were one of the German tribes that settled in England in the fifth century and the name, predictably, means "from Saxony." It could also mean "dagger" or "short sword," referring to the kind of knife known as a sax in German, sachs in Old High German, and seax in Old English, giving the name an edge. This Germanic boy's name feels unique but familiar and could be an unusual alternative to names like Jackson.
