When it comes to baby names, there is little question that television has had a significant influence. One of these is Dawson, a British boy’s name that means “son of David.” Due to the popularity of the teen drama “Dawson’s Creek” in the late 90s, the name Dawson became popular for newborns. While the show may no longer be on air, the name—which reached its peak popularity around the turn of the century—remains popular among parents who prefer last names as first names and among show lovers. This surname originates from the medieval nickname for David, which was derived from the word “Daw.”
