Well, there's no doubt it's a handsome, masculine name. Though, I wouldn't use it. James Dean and Dean Cain come to mind upon hearing it. Both are hunks, haha!

I never really liked this name (or even thought about it, for that matter) until I started watching the television show "Supernatural." One of the main protagonists of the show is Dean Winchester, who is played by actor Jensen Ackles. He is probably the hottest man I have ever seen.

It's an okay name. It's a bit on the boring side in my opinion.

I love the name Dean and it always reminds me of Dean Winchester:) it's a strong name and perfect for boys and it's just an awesome name.

I always think of good looking guys dressed in black leather jackets and Levi's whenever the name "Dean" comes to mind.

Hurricane Dean was the strongest tropical cyclone of the 2007 Atlantic hurricane season. It was the most intense North Atlantic hurricane since Hurricane Wilma of 2005, tying for seventh overall. Additionally, it made the third most intense Atlantic hurricane landfall.

Sounds better as a surname. As a first name it sounds weird and incomplete, like some other one syllable names like Ann for example.

Dean Winchester, the protagonist of the series "Supernatural".

Dean is a name I absolutely plan to use for a second son. I love the simplicity and practicality of it. There is such a 'coolness factor' that comes with the name when I do hear it, which is not often. Two positive associations:
Dean Winchester and Dean Winters :D.

My real name is Nadine but everyone just calls me Dean. It's a short, snappy name.

American actor, Dean Winters. He is best known for his roles such as in OZ, BattleCreek and the numerous of Allstate Mayhem commercials. Such a handsome man and I love his voice whenever he speaks. *Swoons* (:

Dean is such a cute and handsome name! It sounds very nice. What's there to really complain about? ♥ :D.
― Anonymous User  6/10/2015
I like the sound "deen" and I like short names and "word" names too, but I don't like it as a name because of the word Dean. For me it would be like being called Boss or Director, not exactly a bad thing, but not cool either.
Sebastiam  1/18/2015
Dean Winchester is a main character on the television series "Supernatural."
hkols  11/2/2014
I love this name and have every intention of naming my first son Dean. It is strong and masculine but I feel it will allow my son to grow to be a well rounded young man.
MeggieCamille  12/15/2013
Dean O'Gorman plays the dwarf Fili in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
Shadowfax  1/13/2013
I like this name. It seems short and sweet, very fresh and simple sounding, yet strong. In my opinion, it ages well. I can imagine it on a child and it seems to fit adults as well.
Shadowfax  1/13/2013
I don't know why, but I really like this name! Sounds so refreshing on a little boy, compared to all the Liams and Bradens.
Oohvintage  1/12/2013
My son is 4 years old and we named him Dean :) we love his name as it's short but very strong and masculine.

Dean Stockwell is an amazing actor who played Al in "Quantum Leap", Edmund Tyrone in "Long Day's Journey Into Night", and Judd Steiner in "Compulsion". He's also the Boy with the Green Hair! How could anybody have forgotten about him?

For some reason, this name sounds very juvenile to me. I can't figure out if that's a good or a bad thing.
Athena Nike  4/4/2010
Dean Martin actor and singer though his name was probably Dino originally.
Anton  3/7/2010
The male form of my name. I don't like it. The pop author Dean Koontz churns out a new Walmart book rack novel every other month it seems. I haven't read any of his uninspired writing nor do I plan to, but he is reason enough to avoid this name. That, and it's another word for a principal.
Aureliano  2/26/2010
I always think of Dean Winchester from Supernatural or Dean Venture from the Venture Bros. It's a simple name, like John, which draws more attention to a strong last name. I think a good last name would be necessary. It's very masculine and tough-sounding, though. It also seems intellectual, like when you think of a College Dean.
― Anonymous User  12/8/2009
Perhaps those who find Dean a non intellectual name are forgetting about former Secretary of State Dean Atichison. Also from the sports world famous College coach Dean Smith.
― Anonymous User  11/23/2009
Whenever I hear the name Dean, the first person I think of is Dean Venture from 'The Venture Brothers'. Then I think of James Dean. Either way, this name is pretty good.
DestructoGirl  7/10/2009
It always reminds me of the B52's song "Is That You Mo-Dean?" which tells a story about a man who was abducted by aliens, and returned 987 years later, and he couldn't find any of his friends to tell his interesting stories to. It was my favorite song when I was little.
MoonAgeDaydreamer  12/13/2008
This name makes me grit my teeth, as it always brings to mind some angry, fat, balding middle-aged Republican who loathes women and gays alike. I guess that hideous website might have something to do with that.

I am offended by whoever said "... it always brings to mind some angry, fat, balding middle-aged Republican who loathes women and gays alike."

A friend of mine named her son Jimmy Dean *** (last name censored). I think it's terribly cheesy and tasteless.

I love, love, love the name Dean. It has been my favorite guy's name since I was 2 years old. If I have a son, his first name must be Dean.
