"dear friend's place"

Livingston Origin and Meaning

The name Livingston is both a boy's name and a girl's name meaning "dear friend's place".
A new crop of gender-neutral English place names have suddenly become trendy — those ending in -ton. Multi-syllabic but not dramatic, these names are rising quickly for girls and boys. Think Charleston, Lexington, and Kensington. Livingston isn't as hot as some of the others, but its time will soon come. For a girl, Livingston boasts the nickname Liv.
