Obviously I saw this name from Anderson Cooper.... you've probably seen him on TV a million times covering news on the war and on hurricane Katrina. What do you think of the name Anderson? I've never heard it on anyone else. It reminds me of a last name... but then again there are a lot of people named Cooper... which is also a last name. Along with a million other "last names" out there that are given as "first names" I don't know that I'd ever use Anderson, but its growing on me.... for someone who likes using nicknames... they could use Andy I suppose.

I love it and considered it too until DH protested.

I like the use of surmanes for first names - most sound very distinguished.

Andy is a cute NN, too!

I think its really cute, I like it spelt Andersen

Its really really growing on me..... DH said the same thing, but doesn't know if he would want to use it on one of his children. The more I say it or see it, the more I like it.

I had actually had this as a middle name for one of my boys...and later moved it up for a first name. I ended up taking it off the list because I REALLY don't like the nickname Andy...and I thought it was inevitable since the name is so long. But I really do like the name Anderson.

I LOVE surnames and I Anderson is very cute IMO.
Have you read his book - it is AWESOME! I recommend it. :)

I HATE that name only cuz a kid in school that was his name and he was sooo NASTY.

Eka09M June 3rd, 2006 04:36 AM

There are other nicknames that could be used as well, Anders and Ander are my favorite.... its growing on me too. But DH and I keep talking about Anderson/Andersen.... he was joking around and said we could spell it Andersyn because our DD's middle name is Addisyn.. I said NO!!!! LOL You can't throw that "y" in there on a boy. I'm starting to love it!!!!
