- son -son

Our last name ends in -son. It’s not Pitson, but I will use that as an example.

What are your thoughts on first and last names both ending in -son?

Eg…

[name_u]Hudson[/name_u] Pitson
[name_m]Harrison[/name_m] Pitson
[name_u]Mason[/name_u] Pitson

Is it too much?

I don’t think [name_m]Harrison[/name_m] is too bad, but the two syllable names are definitely dealbreakers for me.

It’s not ideal.

I’m not a fan.

I don’t like it. I’ve seen names like that, and it always seems like the parents didn’t really think it out.

  • double post-

Three-syllable first names ending in -son sound fine with “Pitson”, but both names having two-syllables sounds a little off. I don’t think it should be a deal breaker if you find a name that you just love, but the flow is something to consider.

[name_u]Ellison[/name_u] “Pitson”
[name_m]Harrison[/name_m] “Pitson”
[name_m]Garrison[/name_m] “Pitson”

I’m a fairly big fan of -son names, but I would say something like [name_u]Hudson[/name_u] Pitson was too much. Sorry.

I don’t like the sound of that.

Not a fan.

I honestly think they sound fine! I know a family whose last name ends in -en, and all of their sons have names that end in -en, and they all sound fine.
