Surname of George Dewey, a very well-known public figure during the Spanish-American War. Dewey led the Americans in the Battle of Manila Bay in 1898. It's possible that he was the cause of the spike in the name's popularity that year. The name George also took a (much less noticeable) jump up in 1898.

Dewey Denouement is the sub sub librarian in "The Penultimate Peril" by Lemony Snicket. It's book 12 in the "A Series of Unfortunate Events" book series.

Dewey is also a main character in "Unshelved", a cartoon strip for librarians.

I have come to associate the name Dewey with libraries, I quite like it.

Dewey sounds like a name for a spoiled brat. It also sounds very juvenile.

Dewey was the name of that sweet little library cat, wasn't it? I don't like it on a person at all, but it's so cute on animals. I dunno why. It just suits some of them.

The Huey, Louie, Dewey jokes would be endless if you named your son this today. Plus, since the pronunciation is identical to that of 'dewy', the guy might get a few jokes about dew and being dewy as well. This name has always sounded silly to me. Good thing it's dated.

This is not a Welsh name. It's the English form of Dewi. I'm Welsh, and a Welsh speaker, Dewey is not a Welsh spelling, it makes no sense to say that it is.

Despite the fact it looks like 'DOO-ee' (much like Donald Duck's nephew, as someone pointed out), it's actually pronounced 'DEH-wee' (much like how a child with a lisp might say 'derry'). It's another form of Dewi.
