ORIGIN: Scottish
POPULARITY: 122
Carson is revving up for a vrooming mobility among boys' names, pulling ahead of Karson, Kason, Cason and Cayson. Maybe it’s the on-the-go combination of “car” with “son” that parents find so transporting. Indeed, 4,892 boys drove off with this name in 2016, according to Social Security data. This top boys' name is indelibly associated with the female author Carson McCullers (The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter)—and is sometimes used as a girls' name. "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" actress Kathryn Erbe has a son named Carson.
