We are about to call our little boy Kai. He is due in 6 weeks and as soon as I heard it early in the pregnancy we knew it was perfect. We're from Australia and there aren't many little dudes called Kai here. Its a strong and unique name and we are looking forward to meeting him!

We are adopting a baby and considering the name Jacksen. I didn't realize how common it was.. hhmm... We are considering it because all of our other children are almost grown - 21, 18, 16, and we have raised a niece who is 17. He would be named after all the people who take care of him and love him.. J - Jamie (17 yr old niece) A - Aspen (17 yr old daughter) C - Carrie (me) K - Kelci (18 yr old daughter) S - Seth (21 year old son) E - Eric (husband) N - Nicole (Very close family friend, like another daughter to me)

This is the name I plan to name my unborn child. It will be pronounced Lay-la. I hope she likes it as much as I do.

Jackson is a very cute name for any baby boy. I have a little 2-year-old who i baby-sitt and he is SO cute. Great name! :)

11/24/2023 19:21:26

My husband & I named our son Jackson Reginald nickname (Reggie) when he arrived Dec.2016. I always new I would name my son Jackson. For us, as we're from the deep south, this is a family name dating back to the civil war. It's a good strong American name. Nearly 12 years later, he loves his name.

11/22/2023 02:59:44

my 4 month old son is called jackson and i love it. We do not know of any other person who shares the'same name.

11/18/2023 23:45:36

Jackson is a strong solid name. I was fortunate enough to have Jackson as a last name. My father didn't have any boys, and I am pleased to announce that I gave my oldest son the first name of Jackson.

11/17/2023 09:15:38

When I have a son someday I'm going to name him Jackson, after Michael Jackson :)

11/16/2023 17:05:48

I was named jackson wolfe in 1992. I was way ahead of the curve apparently.

11/16/2023 07:06:16

Yesterday, I'met a little 9 year old neighbor girl for the first time with the name "Daisy" and she'said she wanted to change her name because she didn't like it, but when I how told her that I thought that it was a beautiful name her little smile came alive and it looked just like sunshine. I hope I'made her feel better about her name and I told her that "Daisies" are some of the prettiest flowers just like her! At 61 years of age, I hope I lifted the'spirit of such a young little girl who may of been being teased about her name. To all the woman and girls with the name "Daisy" you have a beautiful name!!!

11/03/2023 14:38:08

I love, love, love it!! My 6 1/2 year little boy is named Jackson and I still love it. It is a strong name but so sweet too. I was inspired by the Julia Rober's movie, Steel Magnolias. The Jackson in the movie was SOO cute and I just thought it would make such a beautiful name. My little boy has never gone by anything else and I have never let anyone shorten it to Jack, although I do like that name also. A couple of times someone said Jackie and I was like, NO! Other than that, it is pretty straight forward, people usually dont mispronounce it or anything. I do have to say I didn't know any other Jacksons when he was born but It'seems to be pretty popular now.

10/24/2023 13:38:48

I named my son (turning 3 months May 16th) Jackson Douglas. Ironically I hadn't known it was quite this popular. I got it from GI'more Girls, a charachter named Jackson, but his real name was Jackson Douglas...and Douglas is my Dads name too so it was perfect. My 4 yr old daughter loved Hannah Montana as well , who on the'show has a brother named Jackson. She was in an accident last year and passed away so its a sentimental name as well. She would have picked it out of the few I was choosing between :)

10/12/2023 00:07:00

My husband and I love this name. Sounds strong, yet can be a cute little boy's name.

10/11/2023 01:11:36

09/13/2023 12:49:30

Love this name. We knew from the moment we got engaged that if we ever had a son, we would name him Jackson. Our Jackson is now 8 and he loves his name too!

08/21/2023 14:39:54

My wife and I are naming our Son Jackson. We thought it would be neat since her name is JACKie and my name is jaSON. Sort of a blending of the two of us.

08/16/2023 17:41:50

08/14/2023 14:16:00

We named our son Jaden in 2017. he's the only Jaden in the'school and he loves his name, thinks its cool. Sounds good at the'skate park too.

08/03/2023 00:14:52

Every other baby boy I know being born these days is named Jackson. Too much. It reminds me of the Jasons in the early '80s.

07/25/2023 03:10:42

I named my son Jackson after Julia Rober's boyfriend in "Steel Magnolias. I name my sons after guys on tv that I would rather be married to so I can inadvertantly live in a fantasy world

07/19/2023 09:20:40

We heard this name when I was expecting our first baby 8 years ago. It was our boy name until we had our baby boy, Jackson Ryan, who is now 3 years old. I think this is a very strong boy name and love it. He does not go by Jack - this just isn't his name! He goes by Jackson.

01/22/2022 09:01:12
