I was born in Georgia in 1971 and my name is Dexter. During my childhood there was one other boy in'town with this name. It remains a rare choice for parents. Now, my name'sake is used more often but, rarly pronounced correctly. I find that people pronounce it as Dextra or Dexters. My 14 year old daughter calls me Dexter's Laboratory or Poindexter. Funny huh? Oh, I find that most Dexter are n't ner's most seem to have lots of cofidence in'the'selves and rather outspoken. Seems every major professional sport has at least one Dexter.
