Prior to watching "Lost" I was kind of meh on this name, but now I really like it. Desmond its such a great character and his love for and relationship with Penny was one of my favorite parts of the show! Also, the only man I've ever actually met named Desmond was a very handsome waiter when I was on vacation in London. Love this name!I have completely random and eclectic taste in everything, including names.

Love it! It's my 7-week old son's name, and although most people say they've never met a Desmond here (I'm in NYC and the name's only in the high-300's nationally), they go out of their way to say how much they like it. Others comment that it sounds so "British and regal." And you're right: the nicknames Des and Desi are awesome. It's a name that will grow with him: "Desi" as an adorable baby, "Des" as a teen and young adult, and "Desmond" as a man.

I'm also from Australia and have never heard of it in a bad way. It does remind me of the Beatles song 'Obla Di Obla Da'.
That song does reference Desmond as being a cross dresser
"Happy ever after in the market place...
Molly lets the children lend a hand...
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face...
And in the evening she's a singer with the band..."
But I don't think that matters at all. I've never met a Desmond but know of a Des whose about 70 years old.
I imagine a bookish person. But if there are not many other Desmond's around - your son will make the name his own. Good luck!Please vote on my new names list! July 2013 http://www.babynames.com/namelist/9831892
