Stetson - Baby Name

Stetson - Baby Name
The name Stetson comes from a surname that can be derived from either of two sources. The first is stytt, an Anglo-Saxon word meaning "strike" or "knock." The second is stot, an Old English word that can mean "horse" or "bull."

Stetson also happens to be one of the most recognized brand names in America, thanks to the hat company founded in 1865 by hat-maker John B. Stetson (1830-1906).

Stetson was one of the 1,000 most popular boy names in the U.S. for six consecutive years (1989-1995).
