The Rise of “XX” Baby Names

Baby names featuring the letter X are more popular now than ever before, and this trend has given rise to an fascinating sub-trend: baby names featuring two X’s.

Since 1980, dozens of double-X names have popped up in the U.S. baby name data. Here are all the XX-names I spotted in the SSA data, ordered by year of debut:

  • 1979: …
  • 1980: Maxx*
  • 1981: …
  • 1982: …
  • 1983: …
  • 1984: Roxxanne
  • 1985: …
  • 1986: Alexx
  • 1987: Alexxis
  • 1988: …
  • 1989: Alexxa, Roxxane
  • 1990: Maxxwell, Alexxus*
  • 1991: Lexxus*, Xxavier
  • 1992: Alexxander
  • 1993: …
  • 1994: Alixx, Lexxi, Alexxandra
  • 1995: Lexxis, Alexxandria, Foxx, Daxx
  • 1996: Alexxys, Alexxia
  • 1997: Alexxes, Jaxx
  • 1998: Lexxie
  • 1999: …
  • 2000: Lexxy, Maxximus*, Lexx
  • 2001: Maxxwel
  • 2002: Jaxxon, Axxel
  • 2003: …
  • 2004: …
  • 2005: …
  • 2006: …
  • 2007: Maddoxx
  • 2008: Roxxi, Braxxton
  • 2009: Knoxx, Madoxx, Maxxon, Lenoxx, Nixxon
  • 2010: Luxx, Phoenixx, Jaxxen, Maxxim
  • 2011: Jaxxson, Rexx
  • 2012: Braxx, Jaxxyn, Maxxamus
  • 2013: Moxxi, Dexx, Jaxxin
  • 2014: Jaxxton, Maxxton, Maxxen
  • 2015: Maxxis, Daxxon, Daxxton
  • 2016: Maxxine, Noxx, Brixx, Hendrixx
  • 2017: Madixx
  • 2018: Brixxon, Onyxx, Axxton, Jaxxston

*Pop culture connections: Maxx was inspired by a TV show, Lexxus (and Alexxus) by the car brand, and Maxximus by the movie Gladiator.

And here’s something interesting: as the usage of XX-names has increased, the trend has veered masculine:

200020102018
All babies w/ XX-names3316511,011
Boys with XX-names126 (38%)507 (77%)960 (95%)
Girls with XX-names205 (62%)144 (22%)51 (5%)

What are your thoughts on the extra X — stylish, or superfluous?

P.S. Here are a few more XX-names collected from other posts: Jexxalynn, Lexxannah, Clarixxa, Jixxr, Sixx, Xxoie, Bixx, Matixx, JMaxx, Mixx.

Popular and Unique Baby Names in Idaho, 2010

The state of Idaho recently released its 2010 annual report, and the report includes some baby names.

First, here are Idaho’s most popular baby names of 2010. (More or less the same as what SSA has listed for Idaho that year.)

Popular Boy Names Popular Girl Names
1. William (119)
2. Samuel (116)
3. Logan (115)
4. Ethan (101)
5. Jacob (95)
6. Aiden (92)
7. Mason (89)
8. Noah (82)
9. Alexander (81)
10. James (79)
1. Olivia (122)
2. Emma (103)
3. Sophia (99)
4. Ava (88)
5. Abigail (85)
6. Elizabeth (83)
7. Emily (78)
8. Isabella (77)

Now on to the bizarre stuff!

In the report, Idaho included a selection of unique names:

Unique Boy Names Unique Girl Names
Bear, Character, Dagger, Freighter, Genghis, Hatchet, Hemi, Ice-T, Jethreaux, Justify, King Tiberius, Laugh, Nightsky, Permisius, Raysyn, Ripken, Saw, Scythe, Skeeter, Sourish, Theory, Truth, W’dbin, Wisdom, Zytareon Arrehli, Aoife, Balou, Bronwyn, Dawnlight, Dixi, Espn, Hickory, Kalifornia, Koal, Legacy, Little Noah, Meeka Bella, Mhyrrauzhe, Moneeq, Moserratt, Omolola, Oo, Rootsy, Saphron, Sparkle, Sunset, Tietsie, Virtue, Xoko

Some thoughts:

  • Nightsky and Dawnlight need a playdate. (Just like Thunder and Lightning.)
  • Mhyrrauzhe = Mirage?
  • My first impulse with “Oo” was to pronounce it “uh-oh.” (Uh-oh indeed, if that’s actually how you say it!)

Since Idaho’s annual reports for 2006-2010 are all available online, lets look at the selections of unique names from years past, shall we?

P.S. In the 2006-2009 reports, the heading of the unique names section was “Selected Unique Names, Yewneek Spellings.” For 2010, it was lengthened to “Selected Unique Baby Names, Yewneek Baybee Spellings.” I happen to love these headings, but aren’t they a bit snarky for an official state document…?
