I like the name Jackson. In fact I don't think it would be bad for a girl! I think it is very catchy and very unique for a first name anyways.

Andrew Jackson was an American President.

I only know of one Jackson personally and it is spelt Jaxson. I do see a lot of 3 year olds right now with the name Jackson.

I think the name Jackson is very cute for a little boy!
-- Tito82  12/22/2006
PLEASE, PLEASE don't name your daughter Jackson. I mean, just look at the name JackSON. And then all those guy Jacksons, will feel like girls and be teased, and it will be turned into a name like Ashley or Courtney, and it shouldn't. Don't make the name Jackson or Jack feminine, Just DON'T!

I absolutely agree! The name Jackson should never be used as a girl's name. Good call annonymous user! On a girl it is disgusting but on a boy it is just beautiful.

I love the name Jackson, it's Miley's broter on Hannah Montana. There isn't too many guys named this, so it's unique and just a great name all together. =]

Jackson is the name of one of the characters in the show, Flight 29 Down.

I have heard of girls being named Jackson, Jacksyn and Jaxon. Look at Madison or MadiSON. It is so popular for a girl now. I can see Jackson on a girl. I heard Mason or MaSON on a girl recently at the mall. I know a girl who plays softball named Carson or CarSON. To some people, it's cute and sporty. Some people just like to be different. No need to worry, there will only be a small minority of girls named Jackson or Jacksyn. Perhaps, they will get the nickname of Jackie or Jacki.

I'd hate to be the little girl who gets saddled with this name. Madison at least sounds a bit feminine, while Jackson seems very masculine to me. But anyway, I like it a lot for a boy. It's a family name of mine too so I have a legitimate claim to it.

I love it, but I'm not alone unfournately and it's getting too popular fast.
-- spaz123  6/30/2007
Are you all crazy, people? Jackson is a surname and should not be used as a first name. It's just absurd. It's like naming a child Bush or Clinton.
-- angolmois  7/5/2007
Personally, I think any first name that ends with 'son' should be a male name.
And Jackson is a nice alternative to Jack, even though Jack is already a nice name.
-- Anonymous User  8/1/2007
Some people might not agree but I think that Jackson is a nice name for a girl. It's unique and not too girly.
-- aja3  8/2/2007
Please don't hurt your daughter by naming them this. It is best suited for boys.
-- CharlieRob  9/30/2007
My son's name is Jaxon, and yes it's considered a surname, there is nothing absurd about it being his first name. Honestly a lot of last names make the best first names. I.e. Carson, Preston, Harrison, Carter, and Connor just to name a few. Actualy my son's middle name is Elliot which is my maiden name, so my son has 3 LAST NAMES! How is that for unique?

Justin Chambers, who plays Alex Karev on Grey's Anatomy, has a son named Jackson.

I think a set of twins named Jasmine (f) and Jackson (m) would be fun: Jazz and Jax!

The incredibly attractive Irish actor Cillian Murphy, played the part of "Jackson Rippner" in the film Red Eye. Ironically, the character turns out to be an assassin and jokes about the similarity between him and 'Jack the Ripper'.
-- Ligeia  1/3/2008
I'm not sure why, but this always struck me as the sort of name high school dropouts with crappy jobs wind up choosing for their son. It's not a very sophisticated name. It's okay as a surname, but as a first name, it sounds rather trashy to me, even if it's actually more middle class. Some crazy people, who apparently take interesting drugs, have expressed interest in using this on a girl. Well, it will only sound somewhat acceptable on a little tomboy. On feminine girls, it would be awful. It wouldn't work on any women, now matter how masculine they are.
-- slight night shiver  4/24/2008
This is a surname. It sounds awful as a first name.
-- number1212  4/24/2008
I always think of Jacksonville. Or Jackson, Mississippi. Or Michael Jackson, my favorite :). Or dogs! I've always liked this name for dogs. :)

Popp Montgomery and Adam Kaufman became the parents of a boy, Jackson Deveraux Kaufman, on 23th December, 2007 in Los Angeles.

Imagine twins called Jackson and Johnson. I prefer Johnson, as the sound is softer.

Jackson Rathbone plays Jasper Hale in the movie Twilight.

I don't think I'll ever be able to hear this name and not instantly think of Miley's tiny brother, Jackson, on the show Hannah Montana! haha.
-- KillYourEgo  6/12/2009
Agh. I hate this name, even as a boy's name. And if your surname ends in -son it's just horrible. Jackson, Jayden, Johnson and other "cute" names like that are awful. But this doesn't mean that I'd hate a kid because his (or her name), so no need to take this personally.
-- Anonymous User  7/7/2009
Jackson has always reminded me of Michael Jackson. It's not a bad thing to me because I am fan of his.
-- Disney2009  8/12/2009
I normally dislike surnames used as forenames, but Jackson isn't so bad, since it sounds like more of a traditional name than, say, Campbell or Reagan. This is one name that should stay male. Neither part of it is remotely feminine; Jack is a diminutive of John, which is probably the most masculine name around, and the -son ending is obvious. The only feminine name ending in -son should be Al(l)ison!
-- Anyechka  8/24/2009
I don't really like this name. It's getting rather trendy, even though I admit it sounds more mature than Caleb or Elijah. It also makes me think of Wacko Jacko.
-- bananarama  9/18/2009
I'm a fan of unisex names, but Jackson is one name that I just cannot imagine on a girl.
-- McHobbit  10/24/2009
I actually like this name, despite the fact that it's so common in the United States and seems to remind everyone of Michael Jackson (I wonder why people don't seem to associate the name Michael with him like that, it was his first name after all). I would probably name my son Jack before I'd name him Jackson. Just imagine the teasing he'd have to endure if he'd have a friend named Michael?
-- McHobbit  10/28/2009
How much you want to bet Jackson is going to become unisex. I HATE all these son names for girls! They are extremely popular.
-- Alora  1/3/2010
I know both a girl and boy with this name.
The girl spells her name Jaksen, and I honestly think she's one of the only Jaksens in existence (possibly the only one). It's what I call her naturally now, but when I first met her, I thought it was her last name! (Which was also odd, because she's Hispanic.) I don't think the name is feminine at all.
The boy I knew (back in high school) fit this name very well, and made me really like it. (It also helped that he was both gorgeous *and* really nice!)
-- erb816  1/10/2010
Jackson is an absolutely beautiful name. I love it. Plan on naming a son of mine that. I agree, though, that it just doesn't fit for a girl. Jackson is too much a masculine name. It wouldn't work.
I also think it would work whether the person was five years old or thirty. It can be used on little kids and mature adults and still sounds fine.
-- MeMyselfAndEye  1/18/2010
Well I really love Michael Jackson he's truly incredible so every time I hear this name I will always think of him.
-- Anonymous User  3/11/2010
This is my sweet little brother's name & it is sooo cute! It fits him perfectly=)

Jackson Pollock was a famous American abstract expressionist painter.
-- Nerd  11/8/2010
I agree with many of the posters above: Please Please PLEASE do NOT give this name to a girl. It's CLEARLY masculine, and it sounds hideous on a girl. No, giving a girl a masculine name is not unique or cute, it's extremely trendy, and even quite trashy. There are plenty of perfectly nice girl's names to choose from for your daughter, so why not choose one of them? Because I would hate to see this wonderful boy's name become the next Madison.
That being said, I love this name for a boy. It has a very nice sound-in fact, I think it sounds better than Jack, which to me has always seemed kind of dorky. Then there's also the fact that my best friend since I was little is named this. Someday, I may use this as a middle name on a son to honor him.
-- Nina.Matau  1/5/2011
I've always loved the name Jackson. But I hate how popular it's become recently, along with its "trendy" alternate spelling; Jaxon, Jacksyn, Jaxxson... Blech.
-- mrose19  5/11/2011
This is a very common last name, at least in the US. In my opinion, it just doesn't sound right as a first name.
-- kazoopilot  5/29/2011
Well I have read the comments regarding naming your daughter Jackson, and they are ridiculous. My daughter's name is Jaxson and it’s the perfect name for her. Name your child what you feel. My husband and I knew we were naming our daughter Jaxson, before she was even conceived. We didn’t even consider it for a boy’s name. No one can tell you what to name you child; it’s just something you feel. My daughter is 2 and she already owns her name. She is independent, fun loving and if I must say beautiful.
-- JJG  7/1/2011
I do like this name, but it's way too popular to use. It's an absolutely /terrible/ name on females; it has both a masculine sound and meaning.
-- Black_X  9/23/2011
I have a brother named Jackson, he was named so because it's a family name. I find the name strong for a young man and nice for a little boy.

Jackson Rathbone is an American actor. He was born Monroe Jackson Rathbone V.
-- Anonymous User  12/11/2011
Eh. It's not as bad as some other surnames that were recently turned into first names, but its just gotten too trendy. I feel like I would appreciate it more if it weren't so popular, then It would seem more unique instead of just bland and unoriginal. I would never ever even think of it as a feminine name until it was mentioned in a few comments. That's absolutely unacceptable. I can't imagine a female Jackson over the age of seven. I just don't understand why people are using boys names on girls, there's so many beautiful girls names that have dropped in popularity because of all these masculine names! One last thing about this name: if you have to use it (which I advise against, but if you really love it who am I to tell you different) spell it right! There's so many different ways to spell this name but they all sound incredibly youthful and unintelligent. Jaxon, jaxson, jacksyn, Jacksin, jaxin, jaxyn, etc. Just no.
-- Oohvintage  6/6/2013
If a I meet another kid below the Mason Dixon line named "Jackson", I think I am going to puke... an OK name, but WAY overused... I live in VA, and my son has 4 Jackson's in his 3rd grade class...
-- wmchase65  6/27/2013
I wish I could like this name. It seems like something I would normally like. I'm just a bit bored by it!
-- hattie98  3/24/2014
Please please please don't name your sweet baby girl Jackson. It is about as feminine as naming her Fred- please don't do that to her. I really do love this name for a boy though. I am due in March and this name keeps coming to mind.
