Just to add to what you have said, it also means 'sword-bearer'. Obviously referring back to the 'knife'.

This name sounds plain weird. I guess I could understand if a sax player wanted to use it, but I wouldn't recommend it.

I think the name Saxon is amazing and strong! It can be both a boy and a girl's name.

The name Saxon also means 'Stands with sword'.

Sounds like a good name for a golden retriever or yellow lab for some reason.

To me this name sounds almost noble and makes me think of a warrior in the medieval times. I've never met anybody with this name so it makes it more special and unique. I'm not keen on Saxon as a first name so I'm planning on using it as a middle name.

I hate this name. It makes me think of WASPs. You might as well name your other children White, Anglo, and Protestant. Then I could enjoy some laughter.

I named my son Saxon, he is now 2. It's a good strong name.

This is kind of like naming your son Briton, or Irish. Though I guess Frank is an acceptable name (if a little old-fashioned). Definitely not my style, though.

This is seriously the most WASP-y name I've ever heard. I don't care for it at all.

Saxon is a beautiful strong name and also my son's name. My family are British but also Spanish and my son is half African... I have never met another Saxon but I can tell you my son loves his name and the meaning.
