I love my name......inter'sting to see how popular it has become in recent years.....being in my mid thirties the only people I know who share my name are children (seems like more and more) The only "problem" with the name is that people are constantly asking what my first name is.......I respond "Jackson" and they say "no....your first name"

I just the love the name Jackson, but I didn't want it to be the'same old plain jane old fashion so my husband and I just spiced it up a bit and spelled it Jaxson.. plus we call him Jax for short and that also went with the'spelling.
