Gender: M Meaning of Weston: "from the western town" Origin of Weston: English Weston's Popularity in 2014: #136

Weston has gone from being a Jane Austenish British surname to a first name with a relaxed American western cowboy feel. Along with other trendy 'n'-ending boys' names, Weston is rising in popularity, moving into Number 136--its highest ever--last year. Weston also has a glimmer of creative appeal via its connection to the great photographer Edward Weston. Nicolas Cage chose Weston for his son back in 1990, when it was much more unusual; The Office's Jenna Fischer used it for her baby more recently. Cousin name Easton is even more popular, currently at Number 83.
