its offensive that we have to worry about Dixie being offensive
its such a short name that id never shorten it or call someone Dix
otherwise we'd have to get rid of the name Dickson as well as the classic Richard and Dick
i think it has lots of charm
if you cant get past it try Roxy
ID READ THE WIKI PAGE: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dixie
it seems a lot of people are commenting and taking snippets of facts OUT OF CONTEXT
its not just a song, but refers to a region, currency, & the Mason-Dixon linei do not ignore the Rich Text toolbar provided me. i bold, italicize, enlarge, underline and CAPITALIZE for emphasis, individuality, and to capture attention among the endless Arial Standard Size Font that everyone else uses.
i am not screaming nor will i cosset you. i do this to highlight the most important aspect of my thoughts so they are not lost again in the never ending sea of tiny, black, tempered letters that make up forums everywhere.
~*~ i encourage you to do the same ~*~

Thanks for that, basicsand. I was starting to think I was crazy. I have a sweet spot for Dixie, myself. I like it -- and always have. And I am not partial toor indulgent of the American South. For example, I always liked the bumper sticker with an international NO stamped over the Confederate flag and the words. "You lost. Get over it." Harsh, perhaps, but it's time to move on from that history.
Dixie, on the other hand, I've always liked. I have no good reason for that. I adored my older brother, and a girl in his crowd was named Dixie? Perhaps not good reason enough, but I find it a short, sweet, upbeat name. If you are looking for substance or tradition you might want to look elsewhere, but if you might name a child Annie or Sophie, Dixie could be a good fit for you.
