Name Meaning

English and Scottish: patronymic (‘David's son’) from the Middle English and Older Scots personal name Davy, the common vernacular form of David . The high frequency of Davison in Northumberland and Durham, where it occasionally alternates with Davidson , perhaps reflects influence from Scottish migration in the 18th and 19th centuries. See also Davey .
