i'very rarely meet someone else named Dean. I feel that It's getting more popular, on'tV and media. (I beli've there's a character in'the comics named Dean). People always call me Dean Dean'the Dancing Machine after the bit player on'the gong show, Gene Gene. It's a strange reference. I expect Dean Martin.
Just my personal observation, but Dean seems to be far more popular in Australia than in'the US. In fact, nearly every male in Oz seems named Dean or Bruce.
Dean Forester, Dean Winchester... defin'tely popular in'tv shows.
This is my husbands name. He doesnt love it. Back when "In living Color" was popular they had a character named Blaine on'the'show. he'said he got a lot of teasing over it. So maybe thats what affected his opinion of the name. I guess for a younger child it would be fine.
A guy from Holland once spelt my name Dean as Din must have been'the pronunciation.
imagine being called dean like how old are you 90? Probably own loads of cats too big virg
I love my name, I do! It does seem very rare to find other people with the name Dean and I like that. Unlike all my friends with more common names, nobody has to use my surname to tell me apart from someone else. It's cool, it is.
One of those beachy, california names of the early 60's, like Jan, Darryl, Bruce, Chad, Darren, Denny, Dennis, Bart...
