What does Carson mean?

[ 2 syll. car-son, ca-rs-on ] The baby boy name Carson is sometimes used as a girl name. Its pronunciation is KAARSahN †.

1: Carson is used chiefly in the English, Irish, and Scottish languages, and it is derived from Celtic origins. The first name is derived from the Gaelic surname, which is of obscure origin. The patronymic meaning 'son of Carr' is disputed. The surname was first borne by a certain Robert de Carsan (1276) of Kircandres, Dumfriesshire in Scotland; the 'de' suggests a derivation from an obscure place name, which could be of the Northumberland dialect element 'carr' (meaning rock, coastal rocks) or else the Old Norse 'kjarr-myrr'. The first name has been used since the 19th century, typically among the Scottish and Irish. In Northern Ireland, the name is sometimes given in tribute to the respected Irish Protestant leader Sir Edward Carson (1854-1935). In the USA, the fame of the American frontiersman Kit Carson (1809-1868) has contributed to the popularity of the name.

Carson has 12 variants. Variants include Carrson, Cars, Carsan, Carsen, Carsin, Carsun, Carsyn, Cason, Karsen, Karson, Karsyn, and Kason.

2: Carson is of Old Norse origin. It is derived from the element 'kjarr-myrr' which means marsh area. It represents the transferred use of the surname as a given name.
