Since the 1980s, when it hardly got any attention, Karson has moved up the baby-name charts rapidly. This Americanized version of Carson, a Scottish surname, exudes sturdiness and reliability with a hint of the Wild West (shout-out to Kit Carson, the legendary explorer). This name is a gorgeous gender-neutral choice with a lot of history to back it up.
