The story behind the name iXu [eksu]

iXu and a man

In a long-distance relationship of any kind, there is so much to say to someone to show your love. So much that it feels almost like an infinite number.

I miss you…
I think of you…
I love you…
I <3 u…
i X u.

This is how iXu got its name. It stands for all those things you want to say to someone especially when you are not physically close to each other and have no other means beyond words to show your love.

Of course, iXu does not rely on mere words. That is why there is also another meaning behind the name. In English language, it is also very common to use the symbol ‘x’ for a hug in writing. That is exactly what iXu does – it gives a hug to someone you care about! 

Also, a fun fact! iXu was born in Finland and in Finnish language, the slang word ‘iksu’ comes from ‘ikävä’ which means ‘to miss someone‘. 

After all this, how could we name our huggable teddy bear that sends a meaningful touch to those you miss anything else?
