Spelling Tip for Creative Baby Names – One X Is Enough

What does “xx” make you think of–extra-large clothes? Pornography? Beer, perhaps?

I regularly see double-x baby names used in English-speaking countries. The double-x names below, for instance, belong to babies that were born in America, Australia, Canada, England and Scotland within the last few years.

Girls: Boys:
Alexx
Jexxalynn
Lexxi
Lexxie
Lexxis
Luxxin
Maxxine
Roxxi
Axxel
Daxx
Daxxen
Daxxon
Dexx
Jaxx
Jaxxon
Jaxxson
Knoxx
Maxx
Maxxamillion
Maxxie
Maxximillion
Maxxwel
Maxxwell
Nixxyn

The problem? There’s no double-x in English. Sure, you’ll sometimes spot it in brand names (Exxon, T.J. Maxx) and in surnames (Foxx, Saxxon), but “xx” just doesn’t occur in native English words.

And that’s not all. The double-x has several unsavory associations (see 1st paragraph). So “xx” isn’t a particularly classy pair of letters.

My advice? When it comes to baby names, stick to a single x.

**These kids need to have a playdate together one day.
***Joviale is French for jovial.

Update – Just discovered that Ericlindross is also on the list. It’s a boy name. Looks like it was inspired by former NHL player Eric Lindros.
