    Watson?

    What are your thoughts on the name Watson? And the nickname Wats?

    I ran it by my husband the other day and actually got a positive response which was a nice change. I do typically like surname names and I really like the literary connection having been a Sherlock Holmes fan since I was young.

    Waston fits the surname tend atm but also feels versatile established due to the literary connection. I quite like it

    I really like it. I may consider spelling the nickname Watts just because it would be more intuitive and maybe looks better. Watson is masculine, unique as a first name but familiar. It would be a great choice.

    Thanks for the feedback! It's definitely one to keep on our radar.


    I like the suggestion of Watts with two Ts. I agree that it looks better. I'm glad the name is getting some positive response.

    Watson would make a great choice alongside your daughter Everly. It's my favourite pairing from your signature. It's as familiar as Jackson without any of the popularity. It has strength while the "W" mellows it out.
