I'm Sure I'm Not The Only One Who Wants To Know!

Such an unusual word is Jaaxy that one would naturally want to ask, how did that come into being? There must be quite a story behind it.

So if you know and would like to share with us, we are willing to eagerly read your comment! :-)

Folks...TopAchiever asked a perfectly legitimate question. Does it rank up with, say, "How do we achieve world peace?" Nope, but it's an honest question nonetheless. If you don't like someone's question or the post, simply delete it and move on. There's no room for sarcastic/belittling comments here!

I thank you Sir Vince for your unwavering support! Yes, it is a legitimate question and the comment above was actually uncalled for, but I'll leave it there as a reminder of how not to be. :-)

TA...You are MORE than welcomed! When I read those two posts, I just got "ticked off"...first, because we are a family and should show more respect to one another than that, and, second, I have zero tolerance for negative/boorish behavior!

Your question was a good one..and it was one that has led me one step further...how do the pharmaceutical companies derive the names for THEIR products? LOL!! Many of them make little sense and are not very easy to remember! Oh well...

Have a GREAT weekend, everybody!!

You have a good point there too! I try to figure out what the pharmaceutical name is before I look at the pamphlet to find out what chemicals have been mixed together to form a mild lethal prescription.

It's just that I haven't found the words that may have been put together for Jaaxy.

My version goes something like, Java may be the first word used in the formation, but axy... but then again, I believe Jay had a significant hand in creating Jaaxy, so MAYBE, it was formed from his name, Jay, and because he was so successful, he axed it, therefore, Ja+ax+y would equal Jaaxy... but then again, I may be way off track here.

That's why I wanted to find out if there was anyone who knew!

How did they come up with Google or Yahoo? Don't bother wasting your time answering. I really don't care

Google was so named because its founders are Ph.D. mathematicians. Yahoo is generally positive and easy to remember.

I, too, have long wondered about Jaaxy's name. The "J" part is obvious from its symbol (a chart of traffic) but "aaxy", not so much.

Perhaps, like Yahoo, Jaaxy was named because it's short and catchy.

It will be nice to see this one answered for real.
