"My husband's name is Anson -- his mother was a teen in 1975 and named Ann so she liked the name (very narssacistic) -- Ann's son! :) He used that as a pick up line for girls when he was younger. I love his name. Most people only know Anson Williams. Some people think his name is Handsome when he tells them though -- which, of course, he IS." Feb. 22, 2009:
