Save the name






Fresh, fun and snappy, this impossible-to-forget little name is as adorable as it is super-cool. Jax is a definite good-mood name, with a happy ring to it and an even happier meaning! To trace that meaning, we need to take one step back to the original form of Jax, which is Jackson, then another step back to the name Jack, and a third step back further, to arrive at the root name John, which means 'grace'. Jax is mainly popular in the USA, but is so charismatic, it's spreading internationally.
