What do you think?
I'm thinking Bronte sounding.
For a boy.
Thoughts welcome 🙂

Not a fan, probably because in Scotland there is an east and west Linton so just makes me think of that.

What about Lyndon?

Hmm, not a fan of Lyndon as I know one who is a bit of a drunk!

It's a village in Cambridgeshire. I don't like it at all the name that is not the place, they have a zoo though.

Lynton is a nicer way to spell it.

Not nice. Makes me think of lint.

Lyndon slightly better.

It has unhappy connotations for me because of Wuthering Heights.

I also associate it with Edgar Linton from Wuthering Heights

Not keen... I know a Lincoln, which again, isn't to my taste, but you might like. There is also the Irish name Finton?

Linton-on-Ouse is a village in Yorkshire. Makes me think of that.

Linton has fairly unfortunate connotations in Wuthering Heights doesn’t it? I mean all of the characters are dodgy in that book.

It's the wimp from Wuthering Heights, isn't it? Isabella and Heathcliif's snivelling, selfish son?

There’s a Lynton in my family, I like it.

Sorry, I think of Lynton Crosby, which is not a positive association.

I have a friend with that surname so I’d assume if I heard a boy called Linton that his friends were calling him by his surname.

Clint or Carlton?
