Comments for DUSTIN:

Dustin doesn't seem like a good name, it sounds too... dusty. Makes me think of a dirty boy. Besides, it seems pretty dated to me, makes me think of the 80's.

Dustin sounds like a name for a really popular highschool boy, who's a jock. I think a good middle name to go with Dustin would be Ray. Dustin Ray.

Dustin is a horrific name, it's really cowboy or westernish.

I don't think Dustin is such a bad name, there are definitely a few worse ones out there.

This name is awful, especially when it sounds like dustbin.

I personally love this name. I have two second cousins, one on my paternal and one on my maternal side of the side. I think it is a strong, but rugged name. I think it's horrible that people name their girls this. I do not like ambiguous names. Soon we'll be hearing boys named Mary and girls named Mark.

On the Amazing Race, (can't remember which season) two blonde girls that were best friends and former beauty queens were a team. One of them was named Dustin (horrific, I know) and the other Kandice. They also returned to race again in the Amazing Race All-Stars season. In both seperate races they girls came in second place. They wanted to be the first all female team to win the Amazing Race, but they did not, although they came quite close.

I love this name. Especially the pet forms 'Dust' and 'Dusty'. It's very informal and funny, but sounds nice. I like the roughness.

Personally I think that this is a GREAT name for a boy. It sounds more like a boy name than a girls. It really is masculine and it sounds strong. Instead of naming your son a girly name why not use one that's strong, masculine and boyish? That's what I think about the name Dustin. And it really doesn't sound dirty or dusty and I think that a nickname Dust or Dusty is REALLY cute. So I LOVE this name. If that helps naming your kid any. Sorry if it doesn't.

Well I have mixed opinions. They say what you like should not be altered by others but I know someone named Dustin and he isn't my fave guy. But it's a good name.
-- LilyNell  10/17/2007
I like this name for a boy. Parents, please don't name your daughters this! It's far too masculine.

This name is really sweet. My husband says it looks like a pregnant woman picked up her ringing phone and when asked what she was doing she replied, "I'm justa Dustin'. Oh hey, that's what I'll name my baby." But I still like this name a lot, despite his pregnant phone comments. Oh well.

I love the name Dustin. It is a very boyish name, and seriously, DO NOT NAME YOUR DAUGHTERS DUSTIN. IT IS A BOY NAME. Trust me.
-- p.o.d.fan  11/3/2008
I like this name a lot by ear, but when I look at it I'm reminded of the popular name "Justin", which I don't mind too much, but still. I don't care that it sounds like dust though, I find that nice, almost like Cinderella being like cinder. It's fitting name for a humble person.

A little weird-sounding. It sounds like dustbin.
-- -Julia-  7/23/2009
Careful if you name your son this in England, at school they'll tease you by calling you 'Dustbin'!

I know that for a teenager I'm rather old-fashioned, but I *adore* this name. It is tied with Tristan for me (although those two names could not be used together). :(
-- Gara  4/21/2010
The kind of name that looses its coolness with its uniqueness. Cool historical name, but now overuse has made it a cheap version of 'Justin'.

A famous bearer is Dustin the Turkey, an Irish 'turkey vulture' pupper. He entered the Eurovision Song Contest 2008 with the song 'Irlande Douze Points' (Ireland 12 points), but despite the title, only made it past the semi finals.

I actually prefer Dustin to Justin. Maybe because I've met tons upon tons of Justins.
-- mrose19  8/11/2011
Hate it. I can't help thinking about a dirty little boy. I have never liked this name.
-- GibsonGirl  8/30/2011
This name has never appealed to me.
While I have also always intensely hated "Justin," "Dustin" is unspeakable.

I can recall an old stable that I used to board my horse at as a child... there was a man who worked there part-time who bore this name. My young mind never failed to conjure the scene of a mother calling to her son, Dustin, and the son answering "I'm just dusting the table!"

Regrettably, future parents will need to square with the fact that this is an immensely easily stereotyped name.
That being said; I find it difficult to even consider it legitimate... such a revolting sound; such a revolting sight. "Dustin" is quite obviously lower on the professional spectrum, and seems like it would be difficult to age.

This is my beloved fiance's name and I may be a little biased but I love it. It sounds very rugged and handsome.
-- michelle.ramirez  4/25/2012
I think about the name Dustin as being a rugged, country-ish name, but a pretty sophisticated name too. I prefer this to Justin, and I like "Dusty" for short. Definitely because my boyfriend's name is Dustin and he goes by "Dusty." :)
-- St.ClairK59  7/26/2012
I wouldn't recommend this name. I feel like everyone's gonna think the person's name is Justin if they don't see it written on paper. Also, this name sounds like the word dusty. I feel like anyone named Dustin should have a twin brother named Crustin.

Dustin Brooks is a fictional character and one of the main characters in the Nickelodeon TV series, Zoey 101. Dustin is the brother of the main protagonist, Zoey. He is portrayed by Paul Butcher.
-- ccourtneyw  12/6/2013
It just sounds like dustbin. Enough said.
-- Hushpuppy  5/9/2014
I'm sorry, but Dustin honestly sounds like Dusting.

Like "I'm Dustin the place" (Dusting)

I dislike the name.
