Jackson


Learn about the name Jackson.

Our 7th president, Andrew Jackson, was nicknamed "Old Hickory" for his toughness. He was a self-taught lawyer from the Carolina backwoods, so quite the smarty britches! His legacy has added to the appeal of the name Jackson — which ranked 23rd on the list of most popular boys' names in the U.S. in 2011. Actors Bill Murray, Jackie Chan, and Charlize Theron have sons named Jackson.
