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?"

Ditto Hannah (such an ugly sound but so so common, there are so many in my grade and it's my middle name...huh?) and Olive (I mean I love the food, but as a name?) Others not including the names usually universally hated by actual name lovers like Kaylin and Raylee etc:
