Comments for CARSON:

Also the surname of famed biologist Rachel Carson. Carson is also the Scots Gaelic word for "wherefore" ("why"), as in "But wherefore could I not pronounce 'amen'?".

I read somewhere that Carson was Old English meaning "Son of Carr". I like the name Carson and am surprised at how many girls lately are being Carson. Too boyish for me.

I love this name! How could it be a girl's name? It just doesn't make sense to me.

I agree, Carson is such a masculine name and I am also surprised how many girls are being named Carson now.

I like the name Carson. I think Carson is a good name for a boy or a girl.

I agree with previous comments: THIS NAME IS MASCULINE!

Carson is an awesome, cool name for a BOY.

The name Carson has traditionally had a feminine connotation (see Carson McCullers, author of "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter"). In the last few years, with the popularity of Carson Palmer and Carson Daly, it has become an overly trendy boy's name.

I think the name Carson is an amazing name, for a boy AND a girl.

Not exactly a famous bearer, but Addison on Private Practice said it was her favorite name, since it worked for a boy or girl.

I think I prefer it for a boy, though. Carson Drew was Nancy Drew's dad in the Nancy Drew series.

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this name for a girl. It's so sweet. I wish I'd thought of this name sooner than I did or I'd have named one of my girls Carson.

I like this name for a girl, but I prefer it spelled Carsyn to make it feminine.

Carson was cheer captain in 'Bring It On: in it to win it'.

I think that just because Carson ends in -son means it's masculine. Take Allison for example, it ends in -son but it is no way masculine.
-- jasmineenimsaj  3/22/2008
This is one of my favorite names! I think this name can work for both boys and girls. It's really nice, pretty and simple but still sort of unusual and unique at the same time. I like the spelling 'Carsyn' too, as someone else already pointed out. I love this name!

What is it with people today, thinking a name like Carson is suitable for females? What are American people on? This name is definitely masculine, in a rather boyish way, but masculine all the same. It makes me think of a guy somewhere between ages 16 and 23 who is fun-loving and energetic. Unfortunately, it also reminds me of Carson Daly. I also don't think this is the best name for any grown-up. It works for young guys, but not older guys. It doesn't strike me as a mature name somehow. For girls, this is awful. At most, it might work on a tomboy. But once the girl is 14, no matter what she looks like, the name will sound asinine on her.

I think this is a bad name for a boy and an awful name for a girl! What makes it even worse? Spelling it Carsyn! Yuck.

Carson Beckett was the doctor on Stargate: Atlantis. He died in an explosion though. (Sniff, Sniff.)

I can hardly believe most of you. Carson can work for a boy OR girl. What are YOU gonna do if someone names their daughter Carson, huh? MAKE them change it? Refuse to speak to a complete stranger because their name is Carson and they're female? Yeah, I didn't think so.

On a lighter note, the name Carson makes me think of a dark-haired boy or blonde girl.

I have read that it means "dweller by the marsh". I have dwelt by a couple of marshes at times. It is more pleasant than one might think because of the abundance of wildlife.

I think that it is a great name for boys and that if you know them as they are growing up that it will grow well with them into manhood.

As for naming a girl Carson or Carsyn I do not like it. I think that it is too trendy and just not my personal choice. But to each his own. But creatively spelled names just are not my cup of tea either. I think that it ruins a great name.
-- chrissylynn_26  11/23/2008
I kind of like this name for a boy. To me it's strictly masculine. It is way too harsh for a girl.
-- number1212  12/17/2008
For a girl I definitely imagine someone who is very outgoing. And a cute nickname is Car (again, for a girl).
-- krazykels  12/30/2008
I think this is a horrible name, mainly because it causes me to envision Carson Daley every time I hear it. He's ruined the name for me.

Carson McCullers was a novelist. She wrote "Ballad of the Sad Cafe" and "Member of the Wedding." I think it sounds pretty cool for a girl, if only for her.
-- TheDreadedSockMonkey  10/18/2009
I don't like this name. It sounds harsh, and it has a number of annoying namesakes, like Carson Daly and Carson Kressley. It's even worse on a girl, since this name doesn't even sound feminine.
-- bananarama  3/27/2010
Don't name your daughter Carson! That's horrible. Carson is handsome and strong on a male; on a female, it's brutal.
-- alicehartley4884  9/26/2010
It's cool on a guy, but horrible on a girl. Sure, a boyish name might sound edgy and fun... until the girl grows up.
-- Chrila96  12/29/2010
One of my best friends is named Carson but she spells it Karsyn. I love the name and I like how it is unique (Or at least it is for where I live) and how she spells it.

Isn't it ironic how all these names ending in SON are being used for girls these days?
-- Anonymous User  3/9/2013
True say! I'm confused why girls get these kind of names instead of boys? Don't parents think it would suit a boy favorably more?
-- InazumaElevenFangirl  5/27/2014
I'm not a big fan of last names as first names, but this seems even less like a first name to me than some other last names that are used as first names. Sir Edward Carson was a Victorian attorney famous for his role in Oscar Wilde's conviction and imprisonment and Mr. Carson is the butler on "Downtown Abbey," so my impression of the name Carson is of a stuffy old man.
