Gender: F Meaning of Destry: "warhorse" Origin of Destry: English variation of French

This was the male hero's last name in the classic film Destry Rides Again starring James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich, but in today's anything-goes naming climate, nobody blinked when the Steven Spielbergs picked it for their daughter. We think it's a real winner.

Destry also became a short-lived sixties TV western series starring John Gavin and is a French place name.
