Reply to: About "Dexter" by Kassios
As the BtN entry for Dexter says, the name is the same as the Greek name you describe. However, the name Dexter that is in common use in English-speaking countries comes from an Old English surname. It is pure co-incidence that the surname takes the same form as a Greek name.
