Stirling Mortlock is the only person I've heard with this name. Not for me but I definitely don't dislike it.
I went to high school with a guy named Sterling. I like the name
Glad to hear some positive responses!
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.
I like it
I don't know which spelling I prefer- Stirling or sterling?
Interesting it was popular in the 50s!
