Do it.

I don't see why not. Grace and Marie are pretty boring but that's whatever. Linden would also be nice.

Great name for boys. I was obsessed with it after that Shane West Mandy Moore movie. I know a little Landon and while i dont think the name suits him, i think it has everything going for it.

I have to restrain myself from wanting to use this on a girl :( I think it'd be really cute and better than London. Time will tell.
