From the town of Dax and French commune located in the department of Landes, in the region of Aquitaine, Southern France. Subprefecture the district Dax and chef-lieu of the cantons of Dax Nord and Dax Sud.
The place name derives from the Latin, as the city was called Aquae Tarbellicae (aquae = water) during the Roman Republic and the Roman Empire. From this it became Acqs, d'Acqs (the waters)and finally Dax.
