Ix is a nickname given to Ford Prefect.
Ford Prefect's real name, given to him by his father, has its origins in the obscure and difficult-to-pronounce language of Betelgeuse Seven. Ford Prefect's father, the sole survivor of an event he has never been able to fully explain called The Great Collapsing Hrung Disaster.
In the native language of his childhood home on Betelgeuse, it means "boy who is not able to satisfactorily explain what a hrung is, nor why it should have chosen to collapse on Betelgeuse Seven".
