    Rex, Troy, and... Dean?

    What do you all think of the name Dean? My sons are Rex Thomas and Troy Michael. As you can see we like short, strong, known names that aren't popular. My husband actually picked both of these names. It took some convincing but he won me over. Now i love the names. We're working on baby #3 and I'm trying to get name ideas ready. So, thoughts on Dean? Middle name suggestions? Other ideas?

    I have a nephew named Dean, and it's really not my fav. I knew a Dean who was lazy and generally just apathetic, so that's the idea I had in my mind. However, he is quite the opposite of that. It also reminds me of Jimmy Dean sausages... Not my fav.

    Normally, I'm pretty mediocre about Dean, but it does go together with Rex and Troy perfectly. I think it'd be a very solid choice.

    I really like Dean, though many people here don't seem to. To me, Dean is a rough-and-tumble little boy, sweet and funny who is always playing outside and getting messy!

    Other 1 syllable favourites of mine are Glen, Keith, Beau and Lee.

    I feel the same as this. It actually sounds pretty perfect
