The name Jaxon would have been unique in the 1980s but the popularity of it was steadily growing since noughties. It’s usually used for boys and it has a beautiful meaning: God has been gracious; has shown favor.

But despite having such a holy meaning, the name seems to be cursed. These four boys are not only namesakes, they also shared the tragic life stories as well.

Miracle baby

Sixteen-month-old Jaxon Taylor was on his way to a new life in Queensland with mom Rylea and nine-year-old sister Shayne when they got into a terrible car crash. As a result, Jaxon's head and neck were pulled apart.

The little boy went through a six-hour operation when a piece of one of his ribs was used to graft his vertebrae together.

Dr. Askin, who treated the patient, said:

A lot of children wouldn’t survive that injury in the first place. And if they did and they were resuscitated they may never move or breathe again. How that spinal cord has managed to go around that corner and not sever is a miracle.

 While Jaxon is doing well now, his mother put together a petition to ensure this never happens to anyone else.

Jaxon’s nevus journey

Jaxon Joseph Taylor was born with a rare condition called congenital melanocytic naevi or nevus. This means he has a large mole covering a third of his body.

Jaxon has high risks of developing melanoma as well as having other skin issues. Because the condition is very rear, there isn’t much information about it. When the boy was born, his family was left alone and frightened as they didn’t have any answers concerning their child’s health for weeks.

Jaxon’s parents, Alycia and Clint Taylor, set up a GoFundMe page to raise money to cover their son’s medical costs as well as to raise funds for research.

Life-threatening infection

2-year-old Jaxon Taylor was admitted to the hospital with severe dehydration. His kidneys couldn’t function properly due to a hemolytic-uremic syndrome which was discovered after taking a blood test.

The cause for this infection still remains unknown. After having a blood transfusion, Jaxon started to feel better but in a few hours, his condition has worsened again.

His body rejects food and he can’t urinate. The little boy is now fighting for his life.

A GoFundMe page was created to help Jaxon’s family cover medical costs.


11-months-old Jaxon Taylor died after being left inside a hot SUV. Apparently, the members of his family forgot him in the car after returning home from church.

Jaxon’s aunt and cousin went inside the house while the boy was still in his car seat as temperatures outside reached more than 90 degrees. Researcher Jan Null stated that temperatures inside the vehicle could have reached 140 degrees.

The cause of the death is thought to be heatstroke. There were no criminal charges ruled out as of yet.

So what do you think? Were those tragic cases just a coincidence or the name is really cursed?
