Give the uber-popular name Carson a mini makeover. Change a letter here, drop a letter there, and what do you get? Kason. This gender-neutral name is an American invention that joins the trend of baby names beginning with special “K.” It derives from the Scottish surname, Cason. It’s unisex, but probably most common among boys because of its close links with Carson, which has ties to the Wild West. Kason isn’t as rugged sounding as its diminutive, but it has a clean, straightforward simplicity that will baby boys and girls well. Similar sounding alternatives from the same-sounding family include Jason, Kase, Kamden, Calvin, and Jaxon.
