Gender: Male Meaning of Livingston: "dear friend's place" Origin of Livingston: English

The name Livingston is a boy's name of English origin meaning "dear friend's place". Livingston and is often added to user-created lists like Preppy Names and discussed in our forums with posts like "Love, Like, Lose -- Outlandish/Guilty Pleasures edition!".

From the experts:

When Matthew McConaughey and wife Camila Alves chose the old English surname and place name Livingston for their third child, they elevated it from half of a Stanley & Livingston joke to a modern possibility. Kind of. The only other well-known bearer of the name in the contemporary world is singer Livingston Taylor, brother of James, who is called Liv. Given that little Livingston McConaughey's older brother is named Levi, that uplifting nickname may be too close, though his parents apparently like its sound. An original choice.
