It sounds like a made up name formed by adding D to Justin. It has dust in it too.

I like the name when people don't get called Dusty, because NO ONE wants to keep thinking about a dirty boy!

My name is Dustyn and I am a female. Always hated it growing up not only because it is a boys name but it's also spelled differently. But now I love it! It's not generic or "normal" and I have always been the one and only!

I personally have never had any experience on being made fun of with a name like "Dustin". I don't really see why some people are against it, I personally think it's a really unique name.

Also, just for future reference, "Dustin" is not a girls name. Do not name your daughter "Dustin".

My son's name is Dustin. He's a rough and tumble, sweet, big-hearted, outgoing, adorable 10 year old with dark blonde hair and hazel eyes. It's cute because it's not as overused as Justin but it is still a strong-sounding male name. We call him Dusty as a cute nickname but not all the time. When he was a toddler, I called him my little Dust-bunny and Dustbuster as nicknames. He loves his name and nobody's ever made fun of him for it.

I love the name Dustin, especially when Dusty is used as the shortened version. Ray or Raymond work well as a middle name. This name is ruggedly sexy, handsome, manly, playful, strong, kind-hearted, iron-willed, and down to earth. A true "good ol' boy's" name.

Don't let the fact that its pronunciation is reminiscent of the word "dusting" turn your nose up to this awesome name; instead, learn to embrace it!

Sure the previous remark was raw, crude, and somewhat immature, but I wouldn't have it any other way! Life is plenty serious all on its own, enjoy its simplicities whenever they present themselves, don't get so caught up in formalities and an overdeveloped sense of propriety. After all, if you spend your life walking around with your nose turned up at everyone, you'll never see the world that's right before your very eyes.

My name is Dustin, I was born in '89, I'm twenty six. As a child I disliked my name, though luckily I've never been called "dustbin", and can't recollect ever being teased for it in school, or anyone ever expressing their distaste for it. I have been complimented on it from time to time.

It seems people either love it or hate it. It's grown on me over the years and I really like my name now.

It goes well with my middle name too, in my opinion. That would be Dustin Vincent.

Anyway, if any parents are debating calling their son this, I can say they likely won't have any issues with it. I live in Canada, if that matters.

I'm sorry, but Dustin honestly sounds like Dusting.

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

I dislike the name.

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.

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
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
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.
Francesca  2/7/2012
Hate it. I can't help thinking about a dirty little boy. I have never liked this name.

I actually prefer Dustin to Justin. Maybe because I've met tons upon tons of Justins.

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.

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'.
JW41926  7/1/2010
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). :(

Careful if you name your son this in England, at school they'll tease you by calling you 'Dustbin'!

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.

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 like this name for a boy. Parents, please don't name your daughters this! It's far too masculine.

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
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.

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 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.

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 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.
