"i don't normally meet people with this name but when i do i think its really cause alot of times i feel as if im the only one. when i tell people my names, they always think i say justin -_- and for some reason, it kinda frustrates me when people call me justin, especially if they've known me for a while; never-the-less, i try to get over it, even though i'm 15, it'll get more annoying to me if it keeps for many many years haha" Sep. 8, 2012:
"If Dustin is "white trash", then you must know one that goes by Dusty. Just Dustin, that's the only way to go. Meet a real Dustin and then judge the name. Like most people, named after Dustin Hoffman. I am soft spoken when meeting new people, so I get called Justin a lot." Jan. 14, 2009:

"My husband's name is Dustin. When he called to ask me out for the first time, I didn't know him very well and after I hung up the phone, I couldn't remember if it was Dustin or Justin. I had to call a mutual friend to clarify! I really like his name though- it fits him well. His friends call him "D" or sometimes "Dustino" said with a Brazilian Portuguese accent- Duschino. (He lived in Brazil for a while.) He was given a duster as a gift once called the Dustin, and when he ice skated as the wind in a performance, a friend rewrote the song "Dust-in, the Wind" just for him." May. 27, 2006:

"I have found the name to be difficult for people to spell and understand. Most people want to spell it Destin when they are recording it. I have found it to be a bit of an uncommon name. Most people I have spoken with identify the name with the actor Dustin Hoffman. I find him a bit odd and most people my age identify him with the 1982 movie "Tootsie" or the 1988 movie "Rain Man"."
