Deforest Kelley played Lt. Cmdr. Leonard 'Bones' McCoy, M.D. in the "Star Trek" T.V. and movie series. Sometimes he went by "Deforrest."

Humphrey Bogart's middle name is DeForest.

Before I saw this, I thought deforest meant to destroy the forest. Maybe people should name their child Pollute and say it means pollen or something.

I think that it is unfortunate that the word deforestation has become so common. Because before this name was really cool. I still like the sound of it and am angry that using it would get such a bad reaction. To the above poster, I have never actually seen Deforest used as a word. Only deforestation.

If I marry a logger, this is what I'll name my son.

Is this some type of old-school ghetto name? Forest with a prefix? Little did the people who created this mostrosity know that it would actually have a meaning one day. Sounds like a verb.

This name is dumb. The first syllable makes it look ghetto, and it brings to mind deforestation. Plus, the fact that it is a French surname makes it tacky and ridiculous to use it on a child.

No, people. Just no.

A dignified name, if a bit old-fashioned. The 'de' of this name simply means 'of' in French.

I cannot believe this is a name. I do not like Deforest as it sounds so much like the word "deforestation".

I'd like this name if it didn't sound like 'deforestation.' It is a nice name, if you can ignore the connotations.
