Austin

(Austen, Austins, Austing, Auston)
    The surname Austin is thought to have been derived from the Latin word "Augustus" or "Augustine", which (roughly) means "increasing, dignified, majestic". The name may have grown out of the religious Order of St. Augustine (the "Augustines", or "Austins").
