  1. Anderson is named after my maternal grandpa (last name) so obviously my mother’s maiden name so I liked that aspect too

    I like that it’s a unique FIRST name but not so weird people don’t know how to say it. Bummer a reasonably famous person has the name but maybe it makes it helpful that it’s a little familiar (Anderson cooper) also a reference I’ve gotten a couple times is the matrix movie “Mr Anderson”

    I don’t like the nickname Andy. He’s not 6 months old yet so I believe I can keep that nick name far from him. A nick name we’ve used is Anders

  2. Anderson is actually his middle name. His first name is David after his father, but we call him by his middle name. Anderson is my father’s Swedish family name, and was originally spelled Andersson, but the second “s” was dropped when when they emigrated from Sweden to the US in the early 1900s.
