Anderson

son of Anders or Andrew
ORIGIN: Scandinavian
POPULARITY: 549
For a different take on the classic Andrew, there’s Anderson, a first name made popular by CNN journalist Anderson Cooper. Its etymology is clear-cut: Anderson means “son of Anders or Andrew.” And it has been around a long time, as baby-name polls of the 19th century can attest. Anderson, which is also a surname, has a cool quotient to it—and your son doesn’t have to cover wars and natural disasters when he gets older to benefit from it.
