  1. I just thought that was a suitable name for him he’s my rainbow baby

  2. Dad liked it and I liked the name with an L

  3. His father and I just told each other our favorite boy names and Landon was literally the first one we both said. So it made it feel even more right for his name.

  4. I chose Landon after hearing some of my husband’s lifelong friends used it. It’s apparently an old nickname they gave him. It is a more uncommon but not overly strange name. It felt right and flowed well with his last and middle name.

  5. I chose the name addilyn for my 3 year old daughter and landon for my son that was born 11/19/2019, i chose addilyn because you barely hear that name anymore and it fits her. I chose landon for my sons name because of the movie a walk to remember.

  6. My oldest and favorite aunt named him Landon! I don’t have any dislikes about his name. Only love!

  7. Daddy and I were looking up names in the internet and daddy saw a name similar to Landon and he said well what about Landon??

    I love everything about the name Landon

  8. My mom was naming him and landon was one of her picks. I took it and ran with it. Unfortunately my mom passdeon aug 3 2019. Its an honor to have had her pick out his name before she passed.

  9. I chose my sons name Landon Avery because he has the same initials as my best friend who was murdered her name was Lindsey amber that was as close to her name I could get for a boy if I would have had a girl I would have named her Lindsey amber after my best friend

  10. Got his from the movie a walk to remember

  11. We were just saying a bunch of different names and this one felt right.

  12. I love the name
