Meaning:Descendant of Oistín; Son of the austere man
Some might recognize this dapper moniker from the Duke of Hastings in the beloved show Bridgerton. Vintage and sophisticated, it is the perfect name to bestow upon your little duke or duchess. Both a given name and a surname, it boasts English and Irish roots stemming from the Gaelic surname Ó hOistín which means "descendant of Oistín" and was anglicized over time to Histon, Hestin, and eventually, Hastings. Hastings is also thought to mean "son of the austere man," which might give a slight nod to your cheerful cherub's serious side.
