It's a surname. Reminds me too of "cah's son". Rude cockney term. Sorry.

I agree with the above!

I don't mind it, but I personally hate the whole surnames-as-first-names trend, and Carson is definitely a surname. That's just me though.

It sounds very American (because they love using surnames as first names, I suppose). Immediately reminds me of Carson Daly.

Sorry OP, but I would avoid any names with 'arse' sound in them.

I know a gorgeous Carson. He's about 12. So I don't mind it.

I really like some surnames as first names but Carson sounds VERY American to me....I imagine him wearing a Stetson and chaps.

It's quite popular here. I'm in Scotland so it's pronounced with a hard 'r'.

I like it. Also like Carter and Clark.

This kid comes to mind

Don't worry, I don't follow little boys on YouTube, DD is obsessed confusedhmm

He's relatively famous, and he'll probably be even bigger when your son is at school

Makes me think of Downton Abbey.
I'm also not a huge fan of surnames as first names.
