My name is Tristin and I am nineteen years old. I love my name and I have always thought it was more of a girls name. It is kind of annoying when people think I am a boy though, which they tend to think a lot. My name is Tristin Brooke though and my father named me after his best friend named Tristan who died in a car accident and she was a girl. So I personally think it's a girls name but can be both.

I LOVE this name!!! Tristan is my aunt's FAVORITE boy name. Unfortunatly none of her kids like the name, so my sister and I promised her that one of us will have a Tristan for her. After thinking about it, my sister and I discovered Tristan is perfect for one of our sons anyways. We want to name one of our sons after my Grandpa and Dad (both are named Stanley)but we don't like the name Stanley. We realized that Tristan can be divided meaning Stan the 3rd (Tri-Stan). Tristan's middle name is going to be Levi after my Grandpas middle name.

I named my son Tristan Orion. He's always been the happiest child, always smiling and laughing. Everyone loves his name. I don't think I could have picked a better one for him.

I see this name more as a boy's name. When I hear the name "Tristan" I think of a prince. I don't know why. It's just a princy sounding name. I love it. If I have a son, I'm going to name him that.

I've loved the character Tristan from both legends, King Arthur and Tristan and Isolde. He was such a noble and heroic character. Great name!
