The English name Anson means – as you may have guessed – “Anne’s son.” But even if your little Anson doesn’t have a mom named Anne, it doesn’t make him any less … Anson. Right? Right.
Well, you could shorten it to An, but that might cause some confusion. Especially if his mom's name really is Anne.
Famous people named Anson:
Actors Anson Williams and Anson Mount; singer Anson "Tiger" Hu; philanthropist Anson Phelps Stokes.
Indiana, Maine, Kansas, Missouri, Texas, and Wisconsin all have towns or cities named Anson.
