"I absolutely love this name for both boys and girls. I myself am a female with the name , Carson, and I love it. Honestly, who cares if it ends in -son or means son of Carr? Also, another meaning for the name is marsh dweller. I've never had any issues with people telling me it's a "boy" name. More power to you if you're thinking of naming a baby girl Carson."

"My name is Carson and I'm a 15 year old girl. My sister and I, except for my sister Meagan, all have more masculine names. Their names are Logan, and Dylan. I love having a name that is for a boy or girl. Although people don't always think Iım a girl when they hear my name before they meet me, I still think my name fits me well. My nickname around my family is Carly, and if I ever feel I want to be a bit more girly, people call me that." Mar. 22, 2010:
"I like Carson for a girl. I don't think just because it ends in -son doesn't mean its a masculine. Take Allison for example, it ends in -son but it is no way masculine." Mar. 23, 2008:
"My name is Carson and although I am often mistaken for a male, the name is growing on me. It has sort of a ring of leadership quality. But, one time, a girl I met on the playground thought my name was "Tarzan!"" Sep. 16, 2006:

"It's a boy name. Meaning Son. If you are going to name a girl with a boys name it shouldn't have a manly meaning!" Oct. 5, 2010:

"My daughter just had her first child...a little girl. Both my father and my husband's father recently passed . This little granddaughter is named after them. Charlie Carson.
What a tribute to her great grandfathers and her name keeps their memory alive for our family." Sep. 23, 2016:
"I love the name Carson. It shows individuality. I have a bestfriend named Carson. Even though she hates it and wants to change it. I love it, and I know it'll grow on her. Because it's grown on me ❤💍💎" Jun. 14, 2015:
"Have an 11-year old daughter named Carson. I almost didn't use it because "son" is masculine, but the names Allison and Madison also end in "son"." Dec. 3, 2010:
"friend of a friend had a baby girl and named her Carson Paige that was back in 1994" Apr. 6, 2010:
"I think it is funny that you would name a girl Carson, which means SON OF CARR. LOL Isn't she a girl?" Mar. 27, 2010:
"My name is Carson and I was born in 1972. As a child I was the only girl around with that name. Growing up it was not easy to have such a unique name and everyone always thought I was a boy if they heard my name before they met me. I have gotten used to it and appreciate it more now but I have to say that I do not find it to be a very feminine name for a girl. A lot of people do compliment me on it though and everyone remembers it." Mar. 5, 2010:
"American writer Carson McCullers, who died in 1967 aged 50, was a woman. Her full name was Lula Carson Smith." Mar. 18, 2009:
"I like the name for a girl gonna put it past my wife, hope it passes. Already have two daughters with "boy" names Charlee and Alex Carson would be a great finish to the children in my family" Jan. 31, 2009:
"My name is Carson Nicole, and although I am often mistaken for a male, the name is growing on me. No one else has it. It's different and sort of has a leadership quality to it. Of course, the downside was when a girl I met on a playground called me "Tarzan!"" Sep. 16, 2006:
