This is the name of my boyfriend so I can't help but like it. Although he usually pronounces it like "de white" said quickly.

I hate the sound of this name. It sounds old-fashioned as well, but the beginning sound really is annoying.

I'm so glad to see this fall in popularity. Where I live it's associated as being rather low class.
