Meaning:Son of Anne
A boy’s name of British origin, Anson could be the perfect choice if you want a unique but not too out-there name for your little one. While at a glance its meaning, “son of Anne,” doesn’t appear to lend itself to much, a closer look will reveal a favorable denotation. Anne, along with other variations on the spelling and countless derivations for both boys and girls, means “favored by God” and “grace.” Whether your own name does or doesn’t fall under the scope of Anne, Andrew, or anything else along that vine, Anson will surely be a charming and much-loved addition to your family.
