My grandson in 2002. The journal card tells the origin of his name.

The boy's name Austin is pronounced AW-sten.
It is of French origin. Variant of ancient Roman name Augustus which means “great” or Venerable, derived from Latin augere "to increase". Augustus was the title given to Octavian, the first Roman emperor. He was the adopted son of Julius Caesar who rose to power through a combination of military skill and political prowess. This was also the name of three kings of Poland. Saint Augustine (seventh century) was sometimes called Austin. . In America, the name carries Western association due to Stephen Austin, a frontiersman and one of the founders of the Republic of Texas. The state capital is named in his honor. Records indicate that at least 341,916 boys have been named Austin since 1880 in the United States
