Have always loved the name Jax for a boy? I'm 16 weeks pregnant so still unsure of the sex at present but we have definitely decided on a name for a girl but still pondering on the name Jax for a boy!

The middle name would be George.

Thoughts pleasesmile

I like them individually but not together.

Prefer Jaxon to Jax, Jax is awful not to my taste!

George is very cute 😁

George is lovely!

I don't like Jax and definitely not with George.

I don't like it personally but if you like it go for it. But I definitely wouldn't put it with the middle name George.

Would you consider Jackson (nn. Jax?) George?

I think it flows better than Jax George, but also prefer Jackson as a name (Jax sounds a bit like a brand name to me for some reason). Jack is lovely too, although don't think it works with George.

I think Jackson George would work or George Jackson but Jax makes me think of Vax, the Hoover folk. It's very harsh sounding.

My nephew's best friend is called Jax.
Lovely name. However I wouldn't put it with George. However you could put another middle name inbetween to break it up
Say Jax Adam George ...........

Jax? Where are you living? Is it a name? To me it ranks with Teddie-Blue.

If you like it, go for it. It's very popular at the moment (in real life if not on MN) and i think it's one of those names that's very much of the moment. But Jax George doesn't flow nicely- I'd be included to go for Jaxon/Jackson George instead.

Sorry, it sounds like brand of household cleaner.

TheRealAdaLovelace Wed 17-Aug-16 17:08:59

it is terrible - would you call him 'Jaxie'? You do know what that means right?

YorkieDorkie Wed 17-Aug-16 17:11:46

I know a Jax, I remember thinking it was unusual. I'm not that keen on the name but it's only a variation on Jack which would probably be deemed perfectly acceptable. PP are right though, it doesn't go with George!

I like it ...for a girl though?

bloomburger Wed 17-Aug-16 17:20:54

Dreadful, as is Jaxon.

fluentinsarcasm Wed 17-Aug-16 17:22:39

I agree with calling him Jackson. You can then call him Jax as a nn. This will give him more options when he grows up and going for interviews etc. He can pick which he prefers....Jackson, Jack, Jax, Sonny.

George is lovely.

Don't think Jax George flows nicely but doesn't matter unless you plan to hyphenate.

Have what you want.

Is Jax even a name or is it a made up one?

Jaxson is one I've seen. Awful. But then I'm biased as I had to spell my name for years and now have to spell my surname instead.

leccybill Wed 17-Aug-16 17:32:19

Jax sounds too much like a household brand name to me, like Vax or Daz.

BusStopBetty Wed 17-Aug-16 17:38:13

Awful. It's also a brand of industrial lubricant. www.jax.com/

SoupDragon Wed 17-Aug-16 17:39:13

truly awful.

HeteronormativeHaybales Wed 17-Aug-16 17:40:13

George is nice. Jax is awful, truly awful. So's Jaxon, and Jackson's not much better. Sorry.

SweetChickadee Wed 17-Aug-16 17:41:07

my next door neighbor has a dog called Jax

TheSilverChair Wed 17-Aug-16 17:41:46
