Landry may be redolent of laundry, but it's rising as a baby name for both sexes though more for boys over the past year. Dads may favor this as a sports hero name, after Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry--while moms might think of model-actress Ali Landry. Land is a strong nickname that skews it toward the boys' side.
Landry is one rising surname name, often after legendary Dallas Cowboys football coach Tom Landry, that is given nearly equally to boys and girls -- though the boys pulled significantly ahead in 2011.
