Axl Rose is the spelling of the Gun N Roses member (like this, without the 'e'). It is an anagram - I don't think I can put what it is an anagram of on this site.

Axel Bellmann is the name of the fascinating villain in the book entitled 'The Shadow in the North' of Philip Pullman's Sally Lockhart Quartet. A very strong sounding name in my opinion.

For some reason I really like this name. I don't much like Axl Rose so that can't be it. Maybe I like the "ax" part, very masculine.

This is one of my favorite names. It's short and simple, not too common, and very masculine.

This is a semi-popular name in France. When I asked my husband, who is French, what he thought of when he heard this name, instead of saying, "truck parts", he got kinda' quiet and softly said, "Angels". Neat. If you're looking for a REAL French name, this is a winner. Just remember, in French, the pronunciation has the stress on the second syllable, not the first as in English. It ends-up sounding like the the word, "excel" with a soft "a" at the beginning or like the first two syllables of the word, "accelerate". This changes the whole feel of the name.

Axel is the name of a bad guy in Kingdom hearts. He is part of a group called Organization 13. He is my favorite organization member. Axel is a nobody, which means that he has no heart. Axel's weapon is fire, so I'm guessing that his name meaning has to do with fire or ashes or something.
-- RikuLoverKH10  7/15/2009
What I like about the organization 13's names is they're all anagrams of their original names with an added x. For example, Axel's former name was Lea. Barely male, but when I try that out, the names end up illegible. Kudos to the creators!

Pronounced AHK-sel in German. [noted -ed]

It's a very masculine and strong name, and you can also use Axl as a variant.
-- XxproudrulerxX  11/28/2009
I first heard this name from the Kingdonm Hearts series. After learning more about it, I've grown to like it even more. Although I will always associate it with fire.

I was given this name by my parents, and I hated them for it, I got ridiculed endlessly, my advice, give your child a normal name.

When I think of this name I think of a skater boy. Probably because an axel is a type of skateboard trick.

Axel is a total badass name.

Axel Stone was a playable character in Streets of Rage for the Sega Genesis.

I like the French pronunciation. In the US the pronunciation is kind of ugly, so I might end up spelling it "Accel" just so people would pronounce it right.

Then they'd probably pronounce it "Akkul"...
