Meaning

Strong and wholesome, the solid name Hudson started to climb in popularity around 2005. This name means 'son of Hugh', where Hugh means 'heart, mind and spirit'. Clearly, this handsome and rugged name borrows a little of its coolness from the city of New York, through which the Hudson River flows. And just like the river, this name has both a natural and an urban personality!
