Comments and insights on the name Mason: | Edit

Name Number: 8
Meaning: Power/sacrifice

Such a great strong short and to the point name for a little boy. This name will carry your little guy from the crib to college without embarassment. Such a relief to have a nice occupational based name that does not end in "er". Its current without being trendy or pretentious. Just a good strong solid name. It is becoming more common but then I ask you aren't all of the great strong male names a little more common?

It's actually extremely trendy and popular. It ranked #2 in 2012.

I fell in love with the name Mason about a year ago. It is just a strong, solid boy name. Basically, this is the name for the typical, all-American boy that is easy to spell and pronounce yet cool at the same time. Mace is cute as a nickname.

My brothers name is Mason and I don't think he would ever change it ! It's a wonderful name. It sounds so strong and tuff but with a sensitive side.

I know a couple of guys named Mason, and they are both really fun, sweet, caring, and strong. As well as humble and handsome. The only problem one has is that it isn't as common as his brothers name, but I find that to be a plus.
