- Personal experiences with the name Shaw
My name is Shaw and I like it. It's not too unusual, but there also aren't many Shaws. It's an especially good name for a woman whose maiden name is Shaw and wants her son to carry on the family name. The biggest con with this name is that people tend to confuse it with Shawn and Sean.
