I like this name! It sounds like an independent, strong man. The spelling looks incomplete to me though.

I think this name sounds too "serious". It reminds me of that bad kid who terrorizes his neighbours.

Sounds like the name of a fonzie-esque biker or rebel of some sort.

I am another "Dennis" and always fascinated with the name's history. This is extracted from Wikipedia -- Saint Denis was a Christian martyr and saint. In the third century, he was Bishop of Paris. He was martyred shortly after 250 AD. Denis is said to have picked his head up after being decapitated, walked ten kilometres (six miles), while preaching a sermon of repentance the entire way. He is venerated in the Roman Catholic Church as patron of Paris, France and is a very popular name throughout France and many churches are named after him.

My name is Dennis. As a kid, I got the usual "Dennis the Menace" stuff. I got tired of that, so, I changed it to better fit my personality. Today, I am "DENNIS THE MENTAL". :)

Dennis Reynolds is the name of one of the main characters on the comedy TV show, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Dennis is twin brother to Deandra (Dee) Reynolds, and co-owner of the bar "Paddy's Pub" along with his two best friends, Charlie Kelley and Mac. He's the most narcissitic and womanizing member of the gang, but Dennis is smart and funny with his witty sarcasm and utter disregard for anyone but himself. He is portrayed by the actor Glenn Howerton.

I know a really cute, shy little boy named Dennis, he made me start to really like the name. It's so cute, but at the same time old fashioned :)

Dennis is an awesome name! I would like to see it used more often, I really would. Will I use this someday? Maybe.

I never gave the name Dennis any thought before. But then I saw "Martian Child." The kid's name is Dennis and I've found I like it.

I don't really like most names that end in the 's' sound, and the masculine ones are even worse than the feminine ones, except for maybe Mavis, which is even worse than this name, for instance. Besides, I never did like Dennis the Menace, and that's what comes to mind, as does the occasional American pronunciation of 'dentist'. Gah, not a great association that one, either.

Simply an underrated and awesome name.

Dyns (pronounced: DIN-is), with its Welsh root name, Ynys (pronounced: IN-is) is a feminine form for Dennis. Also, Diynys, with alternate spellings like, Dee-Ynys (pronounced: dee-IN-is), functions well as a feminization of Dennis, too. If you are looking for a Welsh girl's name and you favor the boy's name Dennis, consider the first and middle name combination of, Dynys Enlli, as Ynys Enlli is a Welsh place name of an island considered to be the fabled Isle of Avalon from Authurian legend.

My brother's name is Dennis. I think it makes him seem both strong and gentle. He weathered the whole Dennis the Menace thing, being that he was born like a year before the character debuted. But, you know what, people make the names they are given not the other way around and when I hear the name Dennis, I don't think of that dumb kid in the comics and tv show, I think of a Highland warrior or an English Lord or something. A funny aside -- my brother Dennis was a phenomenal tennis player in his youth! Ok. That got him ribbed a bit!

My father's name is Dennis, and we find it funny that Dennis spelled backward is "sinned". It's still a good name though.

It's possible that the name is derived from Old English "Denisc" (sc = sh) which means Danish.

A peasant in Monty Python and the Holy Grail complains about the monarchy and how "supreme executive power should come from a mandate from the masses." His name is Dennis. In the musical version, Spamalot, this peasant is Dennis Galahad, who later becomes a very attractive knight.
