DP has just put Dexter into the mix as a late contender. I think I like it. Do I? Do you?

I do like it, but I now associate it with the TV series of the same name.

A friend called her Son Dexter 16 months ago.

I really liked the series and it was a bit weird calling a baby by a 'serial killers name' for a while but now he's bigger and has his own personality, he's his own Dexter IYSWIM and I don't really think about it anymore.

I'm not sure I would have been able to use it but I like it as a name

Like it. Needs a cheeky personality to pull off though smile

My Dexter is nearly 6 and was born before the TV series.Never met another one and he really does pull off his name! Cheeky and marches to the beat of his own drum!

Not keen on surnames as first names.

I like it and I don't think of it as a surname. Reminds me of Dexter Fletcher from Press Gang <old>

It's on my list of 2 (along with Chester) for my baby, due in 3 months time.

Love it,

Sorry, but to me Dexter is a breed of small cattle. (Though they are very cute.)

Rhubarbgarden Tue 28-Jun-11 17:44:53

I really don't like it, sorry.

Doesn't Charlotte Church have a Dexter?

But yes, I like it. I also love the show of the same name.

LetThereBeRock Tue 28-Jun-11 19:43:19

It's a horrid name imho.

KeepErLit Tue 28-Jun-11 19:52:06

Dexter makes me think cows or serial killer.


leftblank Tue 28-Jun-11 19:56:50

Yes Charlotte Church has one. I quite like it though.

PrincessJenga Tue 28-Jun-11 21:44:37

Sigh. One day I will find a name Mumsnet agrees on.

I'm loving the Press Gang reminder though. What a show!

wineandcheese Tue 28-Jun-11 21:47:52

Mmmm, Dexter Fletcher. What a lovely blast from the past!

LittleMissFlustered Tue 28-Jun-11 21:58:02

Love Dexter.

The name is cool toowink

Always makes me think of Dex Dexter from Dynasty!
