Meaning of (X) and (O) between first and surname

Posted: 12 May 2014 9:26PM GMT
Classification: Query
In a 1732 passenger list several names have an x or o between their names for example John (x) Smith or George (o) Smith.
I have never run into this before on a list quite so old. What does it stand for/mean?
