If baby comes from a family of gentle and adoring pacifists, the name Payson will fit them like a missing jigsaw piece. Meaning "son of peace," Payson comes from the Latin Pax, which translates to "peace." There may be a German and Frisian connection to Paysen derived from the classic Paul. In the heart of Arizona, you'll find a scenic and woodland-dominated town that shares the same title and maybe even the same natural and carefree spirit as baby Payson!
