Comments for the name Dawson


Comments for DAWSON:

When I was a little girl and played with Barbie dolls, they always had Dawson for a last name. I liked it because I had watched the movie Titanic and the guy's last name was Dawson.

Dawson is an awesome name. It was the middle name of my grandfather, Earle Dawson. Dawson sounds so masculine and rugged. Not too popular which is nice.

Since Dawson is a sept of Clan Davidson, my father (a loyal Davidson) planned on naming me Dawson if I turned out to be a boy. I didn't, and I'm glad he refrained from using this as a girl's name. ;P I think it's a great name for a guy.

This name is timeless. I love old-fashioned names because they actually have a meaning behind them and a culture. They aren't just two syllables mixed together.

This is actually a good name, but people might still assume that the series Dawson's Creek inspired your choice for this name, which wouldn't make you look very good. Maybe some years from now people will have forgotten all about the series. Well, at least somewhat.

I love this name and its meaning (son of David)! I'm pregnant with a boy, and we are naming him Dawson because my husband's name is David. I like that it'll be naming him after his dad without making him a David, Jr.

Dawson could be a nice girl's name. (If Madison or Addison can be a girl's name, why not Dawson?)

Madison and Addison shouldn't be used as feminine names, that's why, my dear poster above. Madison = Son of Maud. Addison = Son of Adam. Hence, not the slightest bit related to the female gender. Nor do they strike as an intelligent name... it reminds of something that would be used on some bratty Southern Pageant baby. Definitely not the definition of brains.

Don't ruin another name for men, my loves. There are plenty of names that girls would be elated to be the bearer of, one that they would thank you later in life for.

Moving forward. Regardless that I truly hate surname-like first names... Dawson strangely appeals to me. And though some people may have concerns of people relating it to "Dawson's Creek"; Fear no longer, for I do not. Perhaps, instead, they may relate it to Leonardo DiCaprio's wonderful performance as Jack Dawson in "Titanic"? Or perhaps simply a clever, rarely heard of name.

Jack Dawson was a fictional character from the movie Titanic (1997) starring Leo Di Caprio, and that's why I l-o-v-e this name.

Ok people, let's think about something; any name ending -SON literally means "son of..." so why would you name your daughter "... son of..."?!

That being said, Dawson is pretty cool name despite it's connection to the cheesy TV show.

I kinda like this name for a boy. However, I don't like it for a girl. Not because of the -son at the end, that doesn't bother me at all, this name just sounds incredibly masculine. Names like Addison, Madison, and Allison all lend cutesy feminine nicknames like Addie, Maddie, and Allie. A girl named Dawson would be left with nothing but a name that is predominately masculine and always has been.
