- Personal experiences with the name Lyndon
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.
