Additional name description Jax
Additional name description Jax


this personality has been blessed on the material plane, but his authoritarian and problem-solving traits provide evidence that his good fortunes are not just lottery luck. They are well deserved. Eights are intensely active individuals, high energy. They are remarkable for their ability to see the bigger picture down to the smallest details, and organize a strategy around success. They then have the ability to lead a group around them towards any goal, and develop individual potential to get the most out of their team.


Jax first appeared on the male naming charts in 2005 - clearly a brand new coin of the 21st century. Jackson, for his part, followed Jack's popularity combined with the trend of using surnames as given names. Jax simply developed as a pet form of these made-up names, and then over time became an independently given name in its own right.

Only by overcoming them, they are able to reveal their potential. These people need to constantly create something, work on something. They can pore over the project that interests them for days.

Fours are reliable and loyal. They seem to be made for family life. They are firmly attached to their beloved, adore family comfort and do not tolerate rudeness and commanding tone. Among the shortcomings, one can note categoricalness, pedantry and fear of big changes.

Personality characteristic

Judging by the meaning of the name, Jax in childhood is distinguished by excessive curiosity and ingenuity. A child from an early age strives for knowledge, loves books and starts reading early. Since childhood, the inner core is visible in the character of little Jax, which will allow him to achieve certain success in the future. The boy diligently goes to the intended goal and always achieves good results, whether it is studying at school or sports competitions.

Jax marries and creates a family quite late. He is very selective in finding his half, although there are always a lot of women around him. He enjoys success with girls due to his reliability, good breeding and good manners. He gives the impression of a promising person, and such men always attract women. He is happily married and loves his children. The offspring prefers to start only after they have prepared the material base for expanding the family. The secret of the name Jax lies in the fact that throughout his life he cannot find a common language with his parents, although he will always take care of their well-being.

Work and career

Jax always achieves career heights. But he rarely occupies a leadership position because of his inability to organize people. He himself is always in good standing with his superiors. The meaning of the name Jax endowed its bearer with a great desire for self-realization and self-expression. Therefore, he searches for a long time and carefully for a business that suits him to his liking. But having found his destiny, he will give himself completely to it.

We named our son Jaxon and we pronounce it Jax - un, which based off an English pronounciation key.

It's a snack food name. Big puffy che'se curl snack food. HORRIBLE

08/24/2023 19:57:28

Personally, I think Jax is a really cute girl's name. It's trendy and stylish, and sounds kick-ass. :) I wish my name was Jax. :)

08/07/2023 07:24:10

I named my son Jax Marly. Some people call him Jack. I just correct them and they usually say, "Oh that's different." His little brother is Maverick Cody. I haven't met any other kids with the'same names. They are strong names! Both my boys fit perfectly in their given names.

07/29/2023 08:34:12

i love the name jax, but i think It's more of a girl name than a boy. this is just my opinion :) and it really is a pretty name haha.

07/05/2023 03:33:06

My son is about to turn 12 and his name is Jax. At the time, even Google didn't give you any hits on the name Jax and it wasn't in a single baby name book that I could find. I loved the name then and it fits my amazing kid to a tee!

06/24/2023 15:23:42

06/20/2023 15:35:14

Great name. This is what we are planning on naming our son when he is born in Dec/Jan.

05/31/2023 08:54:26

Haha this is my name and im 20. Never met anyone with the'same name or known anyone who knows someone else with the'same name. This is in Australia its pretty rare over here

05/28/2023 03:54:30

My son was born in 2011. Named him Jax Maverick! Absolutely fits his most amazing personality.

05/25/2023 14:29:08

Can I just say that I think It's the coolest thing that you write these leretts to your kids on their birthdays❤️ Don't get a big head, but You're a pretty cool mom.

05/01/2023 12:24:22

Cool name with the X factor to it. Our 5 year son is named Jax.

04/03/2023 00:13:58

Love this name! I named my son Jaxx Michael..I don't like the name Jackson, any way you spell it, he is 2 months old today..

02/09/2023 14:40:56

I wish it was more trendy, but only 1600 times used, to me makes it not very common. I am going to use the name, its short, will be easy to spell and my son wont have to use an adult name from a childhood nick name.

01/29/2023 23:17:34

becoming too popular now.... with all the Jaxon's becoming Jax's .. sorry jmo... i used to love it, but dont like trendy names anymore. .. they come and go in/out of fashion too easily... it is punk rock tho!

01/01/2023 22:17:14

Naming my little guy jax this August. It was a no brainer! Too many Johns in the world, and people name their dogs Harry all the time right❤️

12/09/2022 06:47:16

I still love it and my son is two. I thought it was original until I started noticing it rise in popularity and it is a character on the'sons of Anarchy (not sure if they spell it the'same). My only problem has been'that old people get a disgusted look on their face when you tell them his name. They always want to call him Jack. lol

11/22/2022 02:10:04

Named my son Jax and he is 1.5 years now. Cool name!

My friend had a dog named Jax. she'said it was pronounced "Jazz", but everyone said Jacks so...

09/28/2021 14:09:54

We picked Caden in 2016. We had heard it only one other time (someone that lived miles away and spelled it different). We had no clue that it was increasing in popularity so much. Caden suits our little guy and we love the name -- he'seems to think it is cool as well.

09/03/2021 14:50:24

I found out I'm having a girl,but we did decide if it was a boy it was going to be Jax!Love it,It fit us & I think It's cool & short w/a little swagger to It'so if we any more kids & have boy we will have a Jax!
