Male, Proto-Indo-European, Surname names, Virtues/Attributes


Kelson comes from an English surname, made up of Old Norse personal name Kel, a diminutive of Ketill meaning “kettle, cauldron; helmet” combined with the patronymic son meaning “son of Kel” or “son of Ketill”. Ketill derives from Proto-Germanic *katilaz, of uncertain origin, though it may be derived from Latin catillus (small bowl) via a PIE root word.

Kelson is also a variant spelling of keelson, a nautical word which refers to a beam tied on top of the keel of a vessel which reinforces it. The origin of this word comes from Old Norse kjölr (keel).
