X marks the spot for Xavier, a top 100 boys' name since 2001. The "X-Men" comics brought us Professor X, or Charles Xavier, as well as the alternative spelling Xzavier. But Xavier is a name for not just a superhero but also a saint, as in St. Francis Xavier, cofounder of the Jesuits. NBA star Dwyane Wade looked at the end of the alphabet for his sons Zaire, Zion and Xavier Zechariah. Tilda Swinton and Donnie Wahlberg have sons named Xavier too.
