A names, Hebrew, Male, Proto-Indo-European, Surname names, Virtues/Attributes


Anson comes from an English surname meaning “son of Agnes” though I’ve also seen some sources list it as meaning “son of Anne“. It could also be derived from a patronymic surname meaning “son of Hann”, the latter a variant of John (meaning “Yahweh is gracious” from Hebrew) or “son of Anselm” meaning “god’s helmet” or “god’s protection”.

Origin: Proto-Indo-European, Hebrew
