Definitely '-in'. (Fab choice on a great name, btw!)

d.U.N.C.A.N is the way you should spell your new DS name.
If you insist on the other, it should be Austin.

Why should it be Duncan?! Nothing like Austin. Thank you others, will have Austin

Because Duncan is the best boys name in the world. Every. True fact.
DD should have been Duncan. I did ask my DH if Duncana sounded odd.

Duncan is horrendous. Would not do that to my child.

Austin OP!

Austin is the "correct" spelling but if you're a big Jane Austen fan I'd go for Austen.
