Gender: M Meaning of Dustin: "Thor's stone" Origin of Dustin: Norse Dustin's Popularity in 2014: #434

Dustin's popularity in recent years has probably had more due to its similarity to Justin than to idolization of Dustin Hoffman -- himself named after silent screen cowboy star Dustin Farnum -- who certainly was the one to put it on the name map. In recent years, golfer Dustin Johnson has brought fresh renown to the name.

Caveat: Hoffman has confessed that his schooldays nickname was "Dustbin."
