Landon has been my favorite boy's name since I was 10. It all started with the movie A Walk to Remember... the main character's name is Landon and I have been in love with this name ever since. Fast forward 17 years later and I still plan on using this name for a son. I'm a little disappointed to read in the comments section that Landon is being used for a girl's name? Why not use London for a girls name - I think that would be better suited. I like how Landon doesn't really have a nickname, but if I were to find a nickname, I think Land would be cool! Landon means "meadow" and anytime I see a beautiful meadow, I instantly think of the name Landon and my hopes of raising a son named Landon. I have changed my thoughts on the middle name ever since I was ten but have "landed" (haha) on Landon Joseph - my husband's name.

I totally, in my opinion, dislike this name. Out of all the names you pick this? It’s been run by females.. there’s gotta be a change in much better names!

Dumb dumb dumb name and I think it is being taken over by females. I see it more on girls lately and it's just plain ugly.

I love the name Landon. It is so cute and awesome.

I think Landon is an awesome name and no it does not sound like landing.

Landon's a cool name, I guess.

Honestly this name sounds wimpy on a grown man. I picture a low testosterone kid who always gets bullied at school and dresses like a geek.

I can only imagine a little boy with this name.

It's a good name but people will pronounce it Lan-DON, not Lan-DEN.

There's just something about this name that doesn't work, Landon... I don't know it just doesn't seem like an appealing name. I prefer Brandon but that's just me. Oh and I would also spell this name Landen rather than Landon, it looks more like a name that way.

Landon sounds weird to me, and I didn't know it was popular in the US.
― Anonymous User  9/2/2016
I like the name; it feels strong, can age well, and sounds like the name of a cool guy who doesn't take life too seriously and jokes around a lot. It's not a favorite name, and I dislike how common it is, but I still think it's a good name.

This name sounds really snobby to me.
hkols  11/5/2014
I think this name sounds WAY close to London and is just plain ugly, tbh.

Decent name! My only problem with it that it sounds like 'Landing'.

This is my sons name. I love the simplicity of the name. The only problem we have is people trying to call him London...
Samantha89  4/23/2014
I think it's a good name but it reminds me of "landing" like at an airport.
xxlovedisxx  7/6/2011
I really love this name. It has an intriguing pronunciation and it is not that common. Two thumbs up and a name I would definitely give to one of my children, even if I live in a place where it is mostly French that is spoken.
Melissaaa  5/26/2009
This name IS popular. It's #44 in popularity in the US.
Aureliano  3/2/2010
Well, not everybody IS from the US so MAYBE the person who said that it wasn't popular ISN'T from the US at all?

Landon Liboiron (a rising actor, who's pretty darn hot).

I think Landon is a gorgeous name. My first son's name will be Landon. I've had it picked out since I was 10.

Landon Donovan is a MLS player for LA Galaxy and also plays for the US National Soccer Team.
glo827  7/26/2008
It's not a bad name, but it sounds like one of these names elitist parents name their son, who of course is sent to an expensive boarding school, and plenty of high expectations are bestowed upon him.
slight night shiver  4/27/2008
What kind of sadist would give their son this name? Horrible, ugly name.
johann14  9/25/2007
I don't like this name, it's just not very appealing to me. I prefer the name LATHAN.
joanie2007  8/13/2007
It's not something I would use but I find something cute about this name.
Jassie  5/7/2007
I'm probably going to name my kid this. Big fan of Travis Barker!

My friend uses this name as a girl's name. I don't like it for a girl or boy, sorry!

Landon is a nice name for a boy. I also like the name Landry.

I like this name. But I'm unsure if I would name my son Landon. It's a strong name and all, but my friend's son is Landon and I think it would make him feel overwhelmed.
― Anonymous User  9/16/2006
LOVE this name! This is going to be my son's name: Landon Jai Blythe. I always loved London, but it only seemed fair to call my kid Landon, because if he ever goes to London (the city) it would seem stupid, like, "Hey London, welcome to London!" So I guess Landon sounded nicer.

There is also the boy's name Landis.

My friend named her son Landon. It is a really nice boys name. I also heard a boy named Landry and thought that was nice too.

One fictional bearer of the name is Landen Parke-Laine, a character in Jasper Fforde's Thursday Next books. He's a Crimean War vet with one leg who's eradicated (made non-existent) halfway through the series.

I love this Name! But I think I would Spell it LANDEN just to spruce it up a little.
