What do you think of Dean?
I started watching Supernatural recently, and Jensen Ackles has made me consider the name Dean in a whole new light. I realize Dean won't be everyone's cup of tea, but in general what do you think of the name? How do you think it would wear on a guy who doesn't slay monsters? I'm sort of just wanting to get a feel for how Dean is perceived, because it's a name I never see brought up on Nameberry. I'm in the US, if that sways opinions.
Also wanted to add: Dean is currently #284 in the US, with 1230 births in 2011. Anyone else surprised that it ranks that high?

I'm not surprised at all. Dean seems very current and sturdy, always under the radar but very cool. I always loved it because of Gilmore Girls, but then I met a Dean who sort of made it not-so-appealing, but I still find it very sturdy and timeless and down-to-earth. I would love meeting a cute little Dean.Lise

I agree with you; I am surprised it ranks that high! If I heard the name, I would assume an older man initially, but I LOVE Dean on a baby! It is very charming, timeless, and recognizable. I think others may be beginning to think that it's time for a comeback for Dean, too (possibly why it is #284, I mean)
