The New Sound of Action Names…

Looking for a boy’s name that spells action? Try spelling it with an X.

The letter X is the hottest sound in the action-name belt. That’s the style zone running roughly from Idaho and Montana south to Oklahoma and Arkansas, and east toward Tennessee and West Virginia. It’s the likeliest place to find rough-and-ready action names like Stryker and Gunner, along with Maddox, Jaxxon, Dax, and just about any modern-sounding X name you can imagine.

Even in this x-travagant name region, one specific style of X name stands out. Boys’ names ending in XT*N (like Axton) are suddenly everywhere.

Some of the names, like Paxton and Ruxton, are familiar as surnames and place names. Those set the blueprint for a flowering of new inventions like Bronxton and Zaxtyn. Parents are treating the XT*N as an infinitely extensible base, limited only by their imaginations.
