I'm a 65 year old woman named Dallas. I was named for the city in Texas back when naming kids for cities and states was not popular. I hated being "Dallas" when all my friend were Lori and Judy and Sally. But you know what? It's worked well for me. Nobody I'meet forgets my name. They may forget my face, but they never forget my name.

Growing up I didn't really like my name. But after growing to adulthood I realized it takes a special person to be a Dallas. It feels good to have an non-biblical name.

I'm a girl named Dallas and I LOVE IT! I get comments all the time on how pretty and original it is. People always seem to remember it, spell it right, and pronounce it correctly, a huge plus! Of course I get teased every once in a while, I practically grew up as "Texas" and "Cowboy" and I hear an occasional good-n'tured "Dall-ass" from time to time, but It's n't a big deal. Overall: unique, easy to say, spell, remember, and never confused with anyone else!

I love my name! It is kind of timeless, having never been particularly in fashion, so It'shouldn't age me too much as I get older (currently I am 37). I used to get teased at school, and of course especially when'the'show Dallas was big. Some of the teasing I received was (at primary school) "Dallas, Dallas, Crystal Palace", which is actually quite nice now I see it in print. The in'tials of my middle and last names are J R, so Dallas J.R. copped me a bit of flak at school. My parents had been living in'the Australian city of Darwin when I was conceived, but we left when I was six. However, when I returned as an adult, I came across a huge amount of other Dallases, all around the'same age, so in'that city of 45,000 (at the time) it was somehow a popular name. I have found that when a person pronounces my name "Dull Arse" he has ALWAYS turned out to be an enemy, so It'seems to be useful as a gauge that way.
