Meaning:Son of Jan
Sometimes simple is best, like with this Scandinavian boy's name. Janson, originally a patronymic surname, means "son of Jan" and is originally derived from the name Johannes. Although it was first used as a surname, à la Johnson, Janson became a go-to first name for parents in the early 20th century who were drawn in by the ease with which they could honor a Jan or John in their lives.
