Comments and insights on the name Lyndon: | Edit

In Europe, the name is spelled Linden, after the Linden tree and is a popular mans name. The same tree in the USA is the American Basswood, and is superior in making musical instruments.

The Linden spelling in the USA is used for girls.

There is a small town named Lyndon Station, WI, and countless highways and parks incorporating Lyndon in the name in TX after the civil rights president LBJ.

Mistakenly called Landon, Langdon or London (this one by other kids).

Personal experiences with the name Lyndon: | Edit

My third child is named Lyndon. Most people don't know the name until you say, like the president LBJ and then they always remember it. We don't shorten it and nobody tries. We love the Welsh look to the name with the Lyn, and the strong masculine don ending. We feel it matches his older brother's name Arthur.
