Gender: M Meaning of Dustin: "brave warrior, or Thor's stone" Origin of Dustin: Norse Dustin's Popularity in 2016: #531

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. After decades in the spotlight, Dustin feels like a classic rather than an upstart. It now ranks at Number 531, after peaking in the Top 50s in the 1980s.

Caveat: Hoffman has confessed that his schooldays nickname was "dustbin" though in today's more tolerant naming atmosphere, Dusty may be the cute nickname.
