How Far Would You Go for an X?…

Ready to go the xxtra mile? The letter x is our millennium’s baby name turbocharger, the favorite way to add a burst of energy that sets a name apart from the pack. Names featuring an x are ten times as popular today as in the mid-20th Century. Names starting with x are 70 times as popular. Top choices include classics like Xavier, and fresh respellings like Jaxon. But once you look beyond the top names to the rest of the baby name stats, you start to see how far today’s parents are willing to go for the power of the x.

For classics, Xavier is just the starting point. How about Xerxes, Xanthe and Ajax? For respellings, try Xane, Lanxton or Broox. You can double up your x power with names like Knoxx, Nixxon and Xxavier, or pair it with z power to get Xzander or Xzavion. Then there are word names like Lynx, Helix, Galaxy and Matrix. Even silent x’s are getting into the act. Rising girls’ names include Beaux (pronounced “BOH,” meaning male lovers) and Roux (“ROO,” a mixture of butter and flour used as a base for sauces.)

The most sought-after x roots are inspiring boundless creativity, especialily for boys. Parents appear to be particularly focused on “axxion” for boys, with an explosion of double-x’s and respellings. 31 different boys’ names starting with Jax registered on last year’s name stats, including Jaxiel, Jaxden and Jaxzon.

For a fuller sense of the modern name x-plosion, look over the list of creative choices below. Every name listed was given to at least 5 American boys or girls last year.
