The name is a combination of two words/ ideas that I’ve come to associate with each other over time. Axxa is something that had some sort of significance to my father, although its meaning is somewhat mysterious. The last poem in a book of poetry that my siblings and I found that he wrote is titled ‘Axxa’. Abraxas is the idea of a God that contains both the light/dark or good/evil aspects of the world. I first heard the word in the book ‘Demian’ by Hermann Hesse, who is my favorite author. Most people assume it’s a reference to the Santana album ‘Abraxas’ however that’s not the case (although I do have that record). – See more at:
