    Stirling Mortlock is the only person I've heard with this name. Not for me but I definitely don't dislike it.

    i like it. But I wouldn't spell it like that. Spelt like that it means 'thouroughly excellent', 'a man of sterling worth' 'that's just sterling'. I don't know, it's an adjective, not a name....
    I would spell it Stirling

    I looked after a little boy called Sterling. He was super cute and a little Sir so I really like the name!

    I like it! I would have spelt it like Stirling Mortlock though cos that's the only Stirling I have heard of.

    Interesting it was popular in the 50s!

    Sterling \s-terli-ng, st(er)-ling\ as a boy's name is pronounced STER-ling. It is of English origin, and the meaning of Sterling is "genuine, of high quality". The word derives from an Old English term meaning "little star". Also variant of a name meaning "easterner" given to pre-medieval refiners of silver. Familiar as a given name in the 1950s-1960s due to actor Sterling Hayden. Race-cardriver Stirling Moss; sports commentator Sterling Sharpe.
    Sterling has 2 variant forms: Sterlyn and Stirling.
