If so, do they have a nickname? Not sure if it can be shortened or not. Can't think of what it could be shortened to!

Yes, he's a twat though so I don't call him anything tbh!

I know an Austin, but we all ( family, friends ) use his full name ( interestingly he has also been known to be a bit of a twat !)

Only one I've ever known is an old cricket team mate of DH's. He's probably late twenties and doesn't have a nickname - is just Austin.

ISpyPlumPie Sun 27-Jan-13 14:56:32

Btw as far as I know this Austin is not twat grin.

Yes, I know 2 under 7yo with Austin as a first name and one baby with Austin as a middle name.

One is Austin one is Oz / Ozzy.

No

Used to know one called Oz.

Ficidy Sun 27-Jan-13 14:59:50

I know one. He's in his 30s and has always been known as Austin. Nothing else.

Yes and he's strange. Not a prat just, err, difficult.

DameMargotFountain Sun 27-Jan-13 15:02:33

HoobleDooble Sun 27-Jan-13 15:06:42

I know one too ... Beginning to think maybe a lot of us know the same one because, guess what? Yes, he's a twat!

Lighthousekeeping Sun 27-Jan-13 15:08:10

I'm thinking that too and, dreading someone coming on and satiny "that's my husbands name" grin

ChristianGreyIsAJackass Sun 27-Jan-13 15:09:37

I know a 2 yr old austin... He is cute most definitely not a twat

Shybairns Sun 27-Jan-13 15:10:45

I know a 3 year old Austin who is a delightful boy. Not keen on the name my self.

Ozfrazror Sun 27-Jan-13 15:12:29

Well my ds1 is called Austen and he is most definitely NOT a twat! We call him Oz 80% of the time. I love the name although possibly wish I'd spelt it with an 'I' instead of 'e' at the end because his name is always spelt wrong everywhere he goes!

shellyf Sun 27-Jan-13 15:17:26

I know a lovely six year old called Austin.

shellyf Sun 27-Jan-13 15:18:18

His siblings call him oz or ozboz.

Only a cat

Rhubarbgarden Sun 27-Jan-13 15:20:05

I don't know well any but I've met three or four at playgroups. They've always been just Austin as far as I know.

3HotCrossBuns Sun 27-Jan-13 15:33:57

My DS2 is also Austen (nearly 6) and he can be a little bugger at times!! He gets called Austy by us, everyone just calls him Austen. I also wish we'd spelled it with an "i" as it is nearly always misspelled. I suspect he will change it later, as an adult, as many emails will probably never arrive in his inbox otherwise!! I blame the post-labour hormones - "no, not like Austin Powers, like Jane Austen" grin blush Nonetheless lots of people tell me they like his name.

MoelFammau Sun 27-Jan-13 15:52:00

I know an Austin. He's mid-20s. He's called Austin. Sometimes Doctor Austin. He's not a doctor. Lovely guy though, just to counteract the 'twat' Austins on this thread!

DrMcDreamysWife Sun 27-Jan-13 15:54:06

I have taught a couple of austins, both quite strange odd little boys who didn't socialise well....

As a result not a name I would choose
