Variation of Lyndon
"linden tree hill"

Linden Origin and Meaning

The name Linden is both a boy's name and a girl's name meaning "linden tree hill".
The graceful, natural image of the verdant shade tree transcends any connection with President Johnson.

A sturdy tree that can live for centuries, Linden was actually quite a popular boys' name from the 1930s to the 1960s--as was the presidential spelling Lyndon--but has now become unisex.
