  • I've mentioned before my son is named Dawson. We have had a few questions if we got his name from the show, but not many. And I don't think when our children are older they will have any idea about the show.... even if they do know about the show, they will probably think it's cool that a show has their same name.

  • My daughters best friend has a little bro and his name is dawson. Hes 18 mos old or so. I didnt even think of that show when I heard his name. That show is so old and out of date. Its like saying if you name a child Dylan they are going to associate with 90210....Its nuts. Its too long ago.

  • I watched that show every day and totaly forgot about the name! so i think your safe!!! it's a good name!

  • No, I doubt it. Maybe their parents will vaguely remember the show, but the kids def. will not. As an example, I asked my teenage cousin a few years ago if she knew who Madonna was and she didn't!
