I'm a 21 year old female. My middle name is Dale and when people in High School found out I did get teased but i've always known it was a neutral name. Some people are to too stupid. I love my name. I was always put on the boys lists at school because my name is Courtney Dale. It did get annoying.

05/10/2023 13:17:46

My wife wants to name all of our children Dale after their dear ol daddy. Dale is hands down n't only the best name in existence, but the best word as well. Signed, Big Dale

04/23/2023 18:22:28

I am female and my name is Dale. It only bothe's me when it is assumed that I am male.

04/06/2023 21:41:22

My name is Dale and I love it. My married surname is also a male christian name'so needless to say people are generally surprised to meet me and see that I'm a woman. It's pretty cool to see that reaction and it always generates a bit of fun discussion.

03/24/2023 12:45:46

My name is Dayle- I was supposed to be a boy, born1969, but when I was born my parents decided to keep my name an add the Y. I often'tell this story and say Y because they could. I never really liked my name and wished I been called something else like Barbara, tough now it has grown on me. Of course it is often misspelled and I often get mail addressed as Mr, and people assume I am a male until they meet me. I am from NZ originally but live in Perth western Australia.

03/23/2023 02:40:18

For as unpopular as this name'seems, I have a couple in'tances of it in my history: my dad's middle name is Dale, but he goes by it because his first name is even worse... poor kid. My middle name is Dale as well, but I go by my first, so It's no big deal. And i've been dating a girl for about three years now, and her father's name is Dale as well. My children, we have discussed, will n't have Dale in'their names because I simply do n't like it.

03/19/2023 19:36:56

I am a female Dale. It was tough growing up with very short hair... everyone asked my mom how old her'son was. It is also tiresome to correct people who constantly call me Gale, or have them say over the phone "you sound like a girl!" Despite all that however, I have come to appreciate that my name'sets me apart and now I rather like it. Plus It's fun to take people by surprise when I show up and they were expecting a guy!!

02/04/2023 04:11:44

I always liked it because it wasn't that common, and in recent years it has taken on a more masculine image because of a certain motorsports legend, so it probably keeps getting better.

01/26/2023 17:24:44

I'm 17 and almost every day, people get my name wrong. A few things i've been called are "jordan, adele(and of course)GAIL!" Nevertheless, I think It's an absolutely beautiful name for a woman. And like some said in a previous message, we will most certainly always be the only dale in the place. Unique, beautiful and fascinating.

01/22/2023 20:14:58

As a child everyone always made jokes like farmer in'the dale and dale the it was also my dads name. i have met a couple people with the name but n't really.

01/12/2023 10:44:16

My name is Roger Dale. I never would answer to Roger when I was little and politely informed my mother my name was n't Roger but Dale. Growing up in'the 70-80's I seldom met other Dales. Only one I can remember a guy I became good friends with in my teens. Then I'married my wife and her Father's name is Dale and she has a maternal uncle named Dale, and a cousin. My son's middle name is also Dale. I always hated Roger'so we Named his first name Billie after my Great Uncle Billie who I was close to. My wife's half sister through her father is named Dayle. So it is defin'tely a family name in our family.

01/08/2023 03:17:20

I am Dayle. Added the y when I was 14. Saw a female model with that'spelling. My parents were very agreeable. We changed my birth certificate. It was very cool. That they understood the gender need.

01/05/2023 22:58:36

My parents called me Dale (1965) I also get sick of people saying oh we were expecting a man or calling me Mr. I like my name but just wish people would get over 'oh but it is usually a boy's name.' So every Leslie/Lesley Hillary, Tony/Toni Beverley, Jodie/jody, etc etc is usually a what name? Get over yourselves and think before you speak we Dales' have heard it all before

12/19/2022 22:45:54

My name is dale, and I'm a female. And yep, never liked it. Knowing my dad wanted to name me Jessie. I get compliments all the time on it. About the funniest thing that had happened was one time when I'd changed Church's to attend. I had this message left on my answering machine about how much they missed me and hoped to see me back real soon, Mr. Dale.

12/13/2022 05:42:50

11/08/2022 01:04:38

My name is Dale and I am female. People on'the phone almost always ask if I said 'Gail' which irritates a little or they will ask for Mr Dale ..... I love my name however and am amused when seeing the'surprised look on peoples' faces when I am introduced for the first time. Oh, a female Dale? I love that phrase! My health visitors when I had my own children encouraged her daughter to name her little girl Dale after meeting me so that was a real compliment.

11/03/2022 04:41:50

My name is Dale. I was named after the actress Dale Arden - Flash Gordons girlfriend. We moved around a lot and in each new school I was put in the boy's locker'section. The worst situatiion I was in was when I went in for surgery and they put me in a room full of men. The best situation was when I tried to cancel insurance coverage for my furnace and they refused to beli've who I was so they wouldn't cancel it. Four days later my furnace broke down and they had to pay for it. I alway know if someone doesn't know me when'they call and ask for Mr. Dale or letters addressed to Mr. Dale. I love my name!

10/13/2022 00:33:48

My mom is a Dale, and she frequently gets junk mail addressed to Mr. Dale ______. Overall I think It's an okay name...maybe spell it Dayle to make it more feminine looking.

10/12/2022 16:20:04

Dale is part of my middle name, Ragsdale, which is my mother's maiden name, but i've always been called Dale. I love my name, and it doesn't hurt that I identified with Dale Evans, but Ireally have gotten'tired of being made to beli've It's a boy's name. People get used to it, but meeting people can be frustrating. I sometimes wonder why I wasn't name Adele or Della, but my husband says he really likes the name Dale. Beli've it or not, I actually dated a guy named Dale for a couple of years, and it wasn't confusing at all. Over the years, especially as an adult, i've met more ladies named Dale than men!

10/03/2022 06:20:02

My name is Dayle-Ann. I was born in 1966. I was named after my dad Dale. I hated my name all thru school and I changed the'spelling added a Y so I was Dayle. Worked for years as Dayle and still didn't like it. Then I added my middle name on Ann and I was Dayle-Ann. I like it more now It's unique and have had several compliments about my name. Funny some people call me Daylee-Ann! It's so easy to pronounce but some make it harder to say than it is.

05/17/2022 04:05:06

Born in 1962, I hated my name when I was in grammar school because it was so different from all the'susie's, Mary's, Cathy's, etc. However, I began to appreciate it in High School because it WAS a different name. Enjoyed getting put in the boys gym classes every year! I do get the "Mr." treatment but that can be inter'sting most of the time, and for some reason new acquaintances end up calling my husband Dale. I love when my friends call me Daley....It's sweet.

05/07/2022 02:31:30

My name is Dale. Its okay. I don't know anyone else named Dale but I do hear of guy Dales. It bugs me. The only time it really bugs me is when people comment on my name, like oh thats a guys name or like Chip n Dale and stuff like that. But no one really does that'so its cool. I just wish that there were nicknames. Like actual nicknames. Like the amount of nicknames there are for like Elizabeth and names like that.

05/06/2022 04:33:54

My son's name is Dale Robert, both are family names. He was born in 2020, my brother who's middle name is Dale is 28, my grandpa Dale is 61, and my husband's childhood best friend, also Dale, is 32. We live in middle America. My name Amy, and my husband's name Matt are both pretty common among our generation. We did n't want our son'to have to go by their first and last name, big/little, or #1/#2, &c.; Therefore, we chose a name that is n't so common, yet n't completely unusual. We love the name Dale. Unfortun'tely, people often'think we are saying "Gail".

04/30/2022 13:08:42

My name is Dale and I was born in 1962. I am from Australia. My mother was a mad keen fan of Roy Rogers who was married to Dale Evans and they were known as the'singing Cowboys (or something like that!) - anyway - just like so many of the above comments, I hated my name when I was younger but now also like it as it is "different" and I love correcting people when'they ask for Mr. Dale White and I tell them that "I AM DALE" They are sooo apologetic. ha ha ha!!!

03/10/2022 11:57:36

My name is Dale Ann . I was born in 1966 and named after the lovely Dale Evans who , by the way, only lived about 45 minutes from where I live Apple Valley , California. I'm not crazy about the name. My mom wanted people to call me Dale Ann, yuk. I sometimes go by Ann to avoid comments. Yes, i've gotten'them all just like you. i've never gotten depressed over my name, I just wish it was Tiffany, Yolanda, Amy, something girly, im' very girly. oh well, Dale it is. One time I told a woman the operation was a success, I thought she was going to faint. Bad joke, never'said it again. Did you parents want a boy? is that a nickname? Gail? Mr. Dale,

03/09/2022 13:05:06

My name is Dale. It is okay. If I was going to name myself I'd pick something different. I did have a friend growing up named Chip. We didn't mind the Chip & Dale stuff but I didn't like: "Dale the whale lives in a pail and eats snails when it hails"!

02/24/2022 22:13:12

My name is Dayle....I am a female. I have often had my name mispelled as Dale, or Doyle or worse yet, mail sent to Mr. I recently made an appt. for a massage, and when I walked in they asked what I was there for. I told them I had an appt. for a massage. They said I couldn't because the only one they had scheduled was for a man named Dale. When I told them I was Dayle, they actually started laughing. I laughed as I walked out the door!

12/21/2021 23:03:36

I Get nicknmed "Dale Farm" and "Dale Winton", but I dont mind, it may be unpopular were I live, but at leat no one forgets me for being the only Dale in'the country!

10/23/2021 15:19:12

My name is Dale and I am female. I LOVE my name!! Men sometimes comment.."your parents must have wanted a boy". Not true! They wanted me. After'some research I have learned that the origin behind the name Dale is female. Take that'scoundrels... I actually named my business "A Girl Named Dale". Yes I get Mr. and my husband gets called Dale, does not bother me at all I don't think you can feminize a name by giving it a Y as long as you don't sound like a man when you speak It's all good

10/15/2021 16:05:06

I Love my name "Dale", I do get asked, all the time, what it is short for, and get told It's a boy's name, but I think it is a great girls name, just sorely under-used. (However, I do love the fact that I will, almost always, be the only Dale in a room =) )

10/06/2021 13:24:00

I'm a male born in 1970 named Dale. I hate my name. Its so lame. Its n't masculine or manly. A lot of females are named Dale. Ugh. I use my first and middle intials then my last name whenever I need to fill something out. I loath my name. AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!

09/13/2021 11:49:30

My son is 5 yrs old and his name is Dale but I spelt it Daile he gets called daily a lot and gets mad, he's also hates when people don't spell it properly. I love it and think It's a great name 4 both male and female.

09/02/2021 16:52:48

My name is Dale, after being raised in'texas and moving to minnesota, many people made fun of my name by tryin'to pronounce it with a accent, but the jokes about the chI'munks and many other thing follow no matter where you go. i love my name, its n't very common and was a family name

08/26/2021 06:27:18

I wrote an email to this person named Dale asking her a question, never knowing that it was a girl's name, so I called her "Mr. Robbins." She wrote me a mean email back, not answering my question and mostly just saying "Actually, It's Ms. Robbins." So, don't name your daughter Dale if you don't want her to be a bitter, bitter old bureaucrat.

08/21/2021 05:40:30

HI'my name is dale. And i just love my name, most oftenly people mistake my name for othe's when I'mention it but i still love it as the only person with the name in my skul. I'd even consider naming my child same. Its a lucky name

07/06/2021 14:25:12

My name is Dale, and I'm a 29 year old woman. I too use to hate my name & would become totally annoyed every time someone thought I said, "Gail". But i've come to love my name over the years - It's unique & people don't forget me like all my friends names like Jennifer, Sarah and Michelle. My husbands name is Jody. I knew it was meant-to-be meeting him because I have the guys name & he has the girls name. :-)
