I was just reading what the most popular names were for newborn babies in Minnesota last year: for girls, Emma; for boys, Mason. Yeah, Emma is a nice name, but where is the name Mason coming from? I realize that, for some reason, parents these days are prone to name kids last names for first names, but I wonder why Mason? Can anybody tell me?
(Having the last name Dixon, I'm glad that neither son of mine is named Mason)
