This is my Dad's name. I like it because it's different. Of course it always gets shortened to Des!

This was my grandad's name, although he was always called Dessy, which I think is a great name for a boy. Strong but fun!

This name sounds mean and angry to me. For some unexplainable reason, it makes me think about a black minister who is a raving lunatic, holding sermons about how much he hates homosexuals and pronouncing Jesus as JEEEEEEE-ZUUS! while speaking so fast and frantically that he sounds like he is delirious and babbling incoherently.

The only Desmond I know is Quentin Collins' cousin from Dark Shadows. Probably because of the character I associate this as a really frilly and kind of gay name associated with male poodles.

I've always liked this name. I don't care if it's the Beatles' song, "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da," or Desmond Hume from LOST, but I really like this name. Des is a nice nickname, too.

This is such an awesome name. Love the nickname "Des" for it. It just sounds very strong and reliable.

I love the name Desmond! To anyone else considering it, I wouldn't let some odd ball association (a crazed black preacher? wth) throw you off. Desmond is a classic name that makes me think of someone who is strong, warm, and friendly. I also think of someone with brown hair and eyes, which I'm sure is influenced by Henry Ian Cusick's character, Desmond Hume, from lost.

I like this name. It reminds me of someone who's cheerful, energetic, and likes making jokes. Then again, that might be because it's the basic personality of a character in a few of my stories with this name, a wisecracking vegetarian vampire bat.
-- Deinonychus  12/31/2012
To me this seems like the name of a Dracula-style vampire, probably because of the character my brother Deinonychus made. It really surprised me that this name is from Ireland.

It's strange how differently everyone thinks of this name.

Desmond is generally considered very dated in the UK.

I really like this name! My image of someone named Desmond is a twenty-something good-natured intelligent guy who is witty and makes people laugh, although I don't know how I came to that association. I can also see it on an adorable little boy, with the potential nickname Des, and him growing into the name as an adult.
