Dixie has slowly won me over after seeing little Dixie on American Idol. Totally Southern and such a little doll!

While I agree this isn't a great given name, I do think it would make a cute nickname for another D name. Also, I think the sexual reference is rather irrelevant considering many Richards have been called Dick for years.

There are so many reasons to NOT use this name. Dixie cups, Dixie Lee fried chicken, the fact that it has "dix" as a syllable, it sounds like "ditzy"...And besides all that, it's not even attractive.

The first thought that crossed my mind was Dixie cups, but if you get over that it's cute.
