- Personal experiences with the name Saxon
We love it. Saxon is not common but doesn't seem to promote silly nicknames that might cause ridicule. Strong name.
No offence, but I'd say "Saxophone" is a silly nickname and might cause ridicule...
With my name being Saxon I have never had a silly nickname or been ridiculed because of my name. Most parents and even some peers will compliment you on your name.
