Mason Origin and Meaning

The name Mason is a boy's name of English origin meaning "worker in stone".

Mason has become mega-popular; it hit as high as the Number 2 spot in 2011 and has stayed near the top of the charts since.

Mason is an occupational surname that's been heating up for several years, a fresher sounding replacement for the Jason we've moved way beyond, in step with the newer style Cason/Kason.

Mason has gotten a lot of reality-show media attention since it was chosen by Kourtney Kardashian for her son in 2009, but it's been used by several other celebs as well, including Cuba Gooding, Jr., Melissa Joan Hart and Kevin Richardson (as well as by Kelsey Grammer for his daughter).

Currently there are two cute TV werewolves named Mason: Mason Greyback on Wizards of Waverly Place and Mason Lockwood on Vampire Diaries--a far cry from the name's wholesome image.

I only heard of this name after Kourtney Kardashian named her first son Mason. I think it's a really masculine name, I love it! I think it's much, much cooler than Jason.

Mason is the new Jason, and it's just as forgettable. It's the perfect middle name if you're looking for modern filler.
