    I'm not a fan of place names but Sydney is better than most. Much better than London IMO but that's better than Paris/Dallas.

    ETA - oh wait, is it a boy? In that case Austin wins by far (it's the best of the place names IMO) and London isn't used for boys. Maybe Landon instead. If it's a girl, definitely not Austin.

  • Just to clarify, is Laing the middle name or the last name? And is this for a boy or a girl? Not trying to be snarky, but I genuinely can't tell. Austin makes me think boy, London is something I've only heard used for a girl, and Sydney could go either way. I'm not a fan of any of them, but Austin would be my top pick out of those three if you're naming a boy.
    It's a boy! Born 42 weeks, 2 days.

    I like Sydney far better than London. Is Laing a family name?

    Eta: I see you added Austin. I like Austin but not if you're naming a girl.

  • I can see how the post is confusing!

    Laing is the last name. The name would be for a girl.
  • In that case, throw out Austin right away. It's very masculine when used as a name and not one that is in the process of being overtaken by girls (like Ryan, Elliott etc).

    I'm not a huge fan of Sydney or London, but I like Sydney much more. I would keep that one in mind as you keep looking for other options you like.

    When I was considering Sydney for our girl name, I learned it's one of the more popular girl names in NYC. In case that matters to you...

    It's my favorite of the three. London is second. Don't like Austin for a girl, but I've heard it (in Utah, capital of yoonik names).
  • I really like Sydney, London not so much.

  • I would keep Austin for a boys name in the future... Love it!

    Sydney would be my favorite for a girl, it's NMS but definitely a good name.

    Anything else you're considering?

  • I like Sydney by far out of the three. Definitely not Austin!

  • Definitely Sydney.

  • I like Austyn with a y for a girl. I know I'll get crap for this post but it's just my opinion. Its in our top 3 girl names
  • Sydney.

    I went to high school with an Austyn, and she hated her name because people always assumed she was a boy, especially when she was applying for after school jobs.

    I think that Austin is a great name, for a boy.

  • Sydney is the only option worth picking.

    I'd also avoid using a place name for any future children.
  • I went to school with a Sydney. I like that one best. I'm not a fan of place names but I also went to school with a female Dallas - it's NMS though.
