# How can I have an axis label automatically positioned below the X-axis?

I'm attempting to generate some histograms, and I'd like to automatically label the X-axis. However, Histogram[. . ., AxesLabel -> {"X", "Y"}] places the "X" label on the RHS of the axis. How do I direct that the "X" label should be positioned below the axis? I need some automated method (I can of course move it by hand), since I'm going to be generating hundreds of diagrams.

You can use Frame->True

Histogram[{1, 2, 3}, Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {{"Y", None}, {"X", "my histogram"}},
RotateLabel -> False]
