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!

I know an Austin, he's only about 10. Sometimes called Aus (oz) or Ausser (ozzer) mainly just Austin though.

Yes, but he's about forty now. We used to call him 'Junior' as he was the youngest in our group.

Goodness, I knew one when I was at school. I expect he's in prison now...

My grandfather was an Austin. He was a raving alcoholic, just to add to the pile of twats grin

I know 2 - One adult, the other about 11, neither are twats or difficult or odd.

Adult sometimes gets called Aust, boy is usually Austin or Oz.

The only other nickname I can think of other than Oz/Ozzy would perhaps be Tintin.

I know a preschool age Austin. He gets Oz or Ozzie as a nn. He is lovely btw.

My ds is an Austin he's adorable and not a twat (obviously!)
We don't shorten it but have thought of oz / ozzie

i know an Austin at playgroup and he's an average little toddler, only time will tell if he turns into a twat. As far as i know he's just called Austin.

I know a 3 year old Austin. LOVELY boy...affectionately called Oz by mum only.

I teach a teenage Austin.

Prefers skateboarding & heavy metal to writing essays. Lovely lad, though.

The only Austin I know is a grown up, he's a really lovely, cool guy.
