I have always liked the name. My mother pronounced it D-al-ton.

Timothy Dalton (James Bond) and writer Annie Dalton. Who would have this as a first name? I hope this doesn't become the next Mackenzie!

Not only is this an awesome name, but my father's name was DALE and my mother's name was TONI, dropping the last letter of each makes the perfect namesake for my first son! DAL TON.

There's this girl at school named Dalton, and I think that that's a bit extreme.

I hate this name. It sounds so hick-ish and uneducated.

Honestly, I think the negative response to Dalton is not fair. Like if you think of it, there's many good names that were used as last ones, for example Tiffany and Dashiell. This name sounds so cute to me and I can imagine a really cute boy with this name. I also love the fact it reminds me of glee because it's about to end soon so this is a good reminder. Also, only a true glee fan will get this reference. I feel people should lighten up with hate over names because I used to be the same way. But you have to remember a name is chosen from that family's experience and feelings. Also, really, it's not like kids critique their names everyday like we do they're like 'this is my name, so oh well.'

Too preppy for my taste.

Dalton sounds like a horrible person in general with no purpose or future.

Why would you name a cute baby Dalton, unless you disliked him.

The name is awesome! Yes I named my son Dalton. And for those of you who think it's horrible and hick-ish and uneducated, my son is an amazing athlete and honour roll student. He is the only one with this name in his school, so it is unique. I didn't jump on the "name" bandwagon.

Dalton is a wonderful name, and one that my husband and I have chosen for our son. If you go onto the Urban Dictionary to view commentary, it is generally all positive. Also, a name is such a personal thing and can only be chosen by the two people whose opinions matter- the parents.

I've never liked this name that much, it sounds too low class for me.

Boring. Save this name for the hillbillies, it already sounds hickish enough.

I like this name.

The comments from some people are showing more of the person's character than that of the person bearing the name Dalton. My son's name is Dalton and most people love the name, because it's not common/cookie cutter. To each their own.

Food for thought - Trying to degrade the name or by saying ridiculous things about it doesn't change anything, but it does effect how you are perceived as a person.

As a Georgian, I feel I need to mention Dalton, Georgia. County seat of Whitfield County and carpet capital of the world!

I named my first son Dalton. He was a very intelligent, handsome, athletic, humorous 17 year old. Dalton was a very well liked boy. He had so many friends and even his friends' parents loved Dalton as well. All people, friends and teachers and let me not forget, football coaches and Dalts many girlfriends, told me how very respectable Dalton was and how much respect and love he accumulated until that one tragic night when he was killed in a car accident.
