We are expecting ds2 in April and DH has just said he LOVES the name Jax........I can't decide if I like it or not.

I've always wanted a little boy called Jack which DH hates so it would be a kind of compromise on that.

I think I like it but am worried that a) our family will do that one raised eyebrow and whispers behind our back for a few months, b) our ds1 is called Harry which is very 'normal' so not sure they go together and c) can see me introducing him to strangers and having to say "no not Jack, Jax....." which could get very annoying.

I love the fact that DH feels strongly about it as I felt that I had more say than him over ds1's name and he's been working abroad for a lot of this pregnancy so has missed scans and appts etc.

What do you guys think?

It's a big loud no from me.

I'm really sorry, but the first thing that came into my head was "jacksie". I know the spelling's different, but.........

I'm not that keen on the look of Jax, but I do know a little boy called Jackson who gets called Jax/Jacks as a nickname.

I love Jax! odd because it is not my usual style of names at all but I really like it. I think if I were ever to use it, I would go for Jackson and use Jax as a short form though.

Well, I don't understand why Jackson's a name either!

I'm not keen on Jack/Jackson/Jax but don't think there is anything wrong with them, just not my taste.

Another one who knows a Jacqueline known as Jax.

Yes Slainte, was going to post -- the jacks/jax is the loo in Ireland.
