According to a fairly recent study, parents often have some major remorse for picking a baby name that is too popular or trendy. The good news is you can avoid said remorse by picking an edgier name for you baby boy — and it might be as easy as throwing an "x" or a "z" into the mix.
There's nothing wrong with choosing a classic name like Sam or Jeff, but — if you really want your little dude's name to stand out in a crowd — an edgy, unique (but not too "out there") moniker is just what the doctor ordered.
Adding an x or z to a name instantly ups its cool factor. Whether the name has always been spelled with an x, such as Dax, or the spelling has been changed to incorporate an x or z, these letters give the name a modern sound.
Think about your favorite destinations, from your honeymoon location to first date to birth places, and consider naming your son a destination baby name. These names are edgy -- with a romantic feel to them.
