I liked this name when my 7 year old brother was a baby but now I hate it! He is so mean, as we speak he is throwing some big old hard thing at me and hitting me in the back. I like the masculine sound it has to it though!

Steve Austin was the "Six Million Dollar Man." He was played by Lee Majors.

I'm a girl, and this is my middle name. I really like it, because it's unique for my gender and it blends nicely with my first name.

A bit overused but otherwise okay.

Austin = Popular, cute, stuck-up, athletic, JERK. Sorry, I base my opinion on all the Austins I know. There are good ones out there though! Ok name though.

I agree with Miamya. she is so right. My best friend's name is Austin. He is athletic, brags a lot, and very full of himself.

Austin is the coolest name in the world.

To me, this is the epitome of a trendy, faddy name which will become quite dated.

I like this name for a boy. I know of 2 boys with this name one is 6 and the other is 3.

I can only think of the car when I hear it. And of Austin, Texas, although there are other places called Austin. (I think Steven Austin was the founder of Texas.)

Well, my son is named Austin Hunter and I love it. I named him after "Austin" on Days of Our Lives. The older Austin real name is Patrick Muldoon, he is such a cutie. Anyway, my son likes his name and there are not too many in his class which is what I was going for. : )

It's a cool name.

There are A LOT of Austins (and Austens) at our school. I think there are around 25, and that's only 3 grades in a 3A school.

I think this is an adorable name for a little boy, and it grows up well, too. I know one Austin, and he's a really funny, likable guy.

The name Austin can be dated back to the 19th century, and perhaps earlier than that. The 19th century poet Emily Dickinson had a brother named William Austin. He went by the name Austin though.

Intersting fact #2 - Texas has a big city named Austin. The city is considered to be pretty liberal politically and has been called "the blueberry in a raspberry field." The Raspberry field refers to Texas on a whole being conservative. Austin, Texas even has a sign that reads, "Keep Austin Weird."

My son's name is Austin. I love this name. It's very nice. No room for teasing here. I look out for that because I was a victim of teasing as a kid.

I really like this name. It's really cute.

Austin is not only the name of a city in Texas, it's the capital of Texas. This name is extremely overused, and I urge everyone to avoid it, even if you live in Texas. The same goes for Cody, Wyatt, Dallas, and Colt.
faye  1/24/2009
Way way way too overused. 39 Austins go to my school.

I reallyyyy like Austin. But my only problem is that it won't be so "oh-my-gosh-that-is-so-adorable" when he's fifty.

My little brother's name is Austin. There are a lot of Austins around our town, but he is the only one his age. I love this name. It sounds so sweet. :)

Never liked this name. I'm still hearing it on way too many boys under the age of ten, and once I even walked past some people who were having a conversation about how every time one of them called for Austin, ten little boys would turn around! When I hear this name, I think, "Ooh, over-trendy parents!" There's also the association (in New England at least) with the Austen Riggs psychiatric hospital in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
Anyechka  8/12/2009
I like it, but everyone else seems to like it as well. Now it's very boring and overused. I wouldn't use it.
bananarama  8/21/2009
I don't know why everyone is saying this name is overused. I've only met one Austin in my life. But I live in NYC, maybe it's more common in other places. Anyway, I like this name. But I don't think it ages very well. Imagine an eighty-year old man named Austin. It doesn't fit.

The Augustinian order of monks were popularly known as 'The Austin' friars and this is probably the origin of the name.

In the Blake Shelton song 'Austin' it's a girl's name, and to me it seems to suit a girl.

I actually like Austin as a girl's name, even though it is traditionally masculine. It is unique and strong. I love to write and a female character in one of the stories I'm writing is named Austin.

The city Austin, Tx was named for Stephen F. Austin.
jadelily  6/4/2011
I like how the name Austin transcends time. My great-grandfather's (born in 1888) first name was Austin. My co-worker had a baby boy a year ago and she named him Austin. Plus my friend's daughter's name is Austyn. So in all these years, it's still a nice name and it's crossing genders too.

Austin Moon from Disney Channel sitcom Austin & Ally! This character is played by Ross Lynch.

Famous bearer: Austin Scarlett (fashion designer extraordinaire!) I think it's a very adorable fanciful fun name because I always associate it with him. Austin was on the first season of project runway, starred in On the Road with Austin and Santino, and made it to the finale in Project Runway: Allstars. I love him and the name!
Navyangel323  3/26/2012
Ugh, BOY'S NAME only. The girls have stolen enough traditionally masculine names without Austin being added to the list.

The name Austin was unfortunately given to 151 girls born in the US in 2015.
HerculePoirot  6/17/2016
I like the name, it's the capital of Texas! But it's too young sounding too me, I like names that are both young, but still old sounding. Austin reminds me of a young cowboy.
firestar11  7/24/2016
I like my name, it is an awesome name. My mom named me Austin and my name is popular in Canada.
therapper13  10/21/2016
The name Austin has long been a family name. The first was my Uncle Austin who was born in the 1920's, then my brother in the 1950's a cousin born in the 1960's and now my grandson who was born in 2014. When my brother and cousin were younger, they were the only Austins we knew in the neighborhoods or their schools. The name then became more popular in the '70's & 80's with the 6 Million Dollar Man and Austin Powers. I wish it was a little less popular for my grandson's current generation. But I do love the name.

My name is Austin and honestly I wouldn't change it. I love how it sounds. Masculine yet very intimate.
