Branson: baby boy name meaning and popularity


A surname-turned-first-name, probably a place name derived from the Old English elements "brand" which means "to burn" and "tūn" which means "town." Historically, this just indicated that the land had been cleared via burning to make way for the town to be built on that spot, so don't worry - it won't mean your little Branson has a tendency toward pyromania or anything.
