    Name Meaning

    English: patronymic meaning ‘son of Dawe’, from the Middle English personal name Daw(e) (see Daw 1 and 2), which is sometimes a pet form of David (see 2 below) but more generally of Rauf or Raw (i.e. Ralph ), of which Daw(e) is a rhyming form. Alternatively, the patronymic could mean ‘son of Daud(e)’, another Middle English pet form of Ralph evidently used interchangeably with Dawe. Dawson is one of the most numerous patronymics.

    Scottish: patronymic, ‘son of Dawe’. In Scotland Dawe is a diminutive of David (compare 1 above).
