IXL (or I.X.L.) is a town in Okfuskee County, Oklahoma, United States. It was incorporated in 2001[1] and had an estimated population of 59 in 2007.[2] The 2010 census listed the population at 51.[3]

The source of IXL's unusual[4] name is disputed. A 2012 article on the town's website explained that the name derived from Indian Exchange Land, a reference to the town being on Mvskoke land.[5] Other sources claim that the letters were taken from the names of two men.[6]
