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’ve spotted so far, 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 Baby Names in Newfoundland and Labrador, 2016

According to preliminary data released on January 6th by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, the most popular baby names in 2016 were Emma and Jackson (and variants).

Here are the province’s projected top 10 girl names and top 10 boy names of 2016:

Girl Names
1. Emma
2. Avary/Avery
3. Charlotte
4. Olivia
5. Addison/Addyson
6. Scarlett
7. Abbigail/Abigail/Abigale
8. Anna
9. Cali/Callie/Kali/Kallee/Kallie
10. Emilee/Emily

Boy Names
1. Jackson/Jaxen/Jaxon/Jaxson/Jaxxen/Jaxxon
2. Liam
3. Benjamin
4. Jack
5. James
6. Mason
7. Grayson/Greyson
8. Jacob
9. Noah
10. Isaac/Isac/Issac

The #1 names are the same as in 2015. (I forgot to post the 2015 rankings last year, but here are the 2014 rankings.)

In the girls’ top 10, the Addison-group, Scarlett, the Abigail-group, the Callie-group, and the Emily-group replaced the Sophia-group, the Lily-group, the Mia-group, the Ava-group, and the Chloe-group.

In the boys’ top 10, Mason, the Greyson-group, and the Isaac-group replaced Parker, the Nathan-group, and Carter.

Most of the pronunciation groupings on N.L.’s full top 100 made sense, but here are two I wasn’t so sure about:

  • In 21st place on the girls’ list was “Lea/Leah/Leia/Leiyah/Lia/Leya,” which mixes LEE?uh and LAY?uh names.
  • In 63rd place on the girls’ list was “Raya/Rayah/Rhea,” which mixes RAY?uh and REE?uh names.
