    This is just one of those across-the-Pond differences. Desmond isn't used very much in my area, but Gavin is very popular among boys---the oldest Gavin I've met was about 13 or 14 and the rest were elementary school age (5-10-ish), though I had a great-uncle whose name was Robert Gavan. I also had a classmate in the second grade named Alan as well as a kindergarten classmate named Derek and two high school friends named Ian---they'd be about 24-25 now, and most American Dereks and Ians would be 15-35-ish. And my teenage sister has a friend named Graham; they met a 30-ish man named Graeme and there was much rejoicing.

    It's funny, but I had the exact opposite reaction to yours when I first heard of Sir Derek Jacobi: "You mean there's someone named Derek who's over 35?"
