Nice name. I’ve never heard it before.

Don’t like the ending “con” but it looks a nice name.

I honestly didn't realize it was a religious title, and I don't really care that it is, either. It doesn't sound like something a zealot would name a kid for me, either. All in all it seems like a pretty nice name, and I enjoy it thoroughly. I don't get why people are mad over it.

Not that bad, but the similarity with Dick when pronounced makes it worse.

Personally, I didn't even know that a Deacon was a religious person. So if you're worried about kids getting bullied because of their name being Deacon, you shouldn't be. Most kids aren't christian. In my mind, the first thing I think of when I hear Deacon is "beacon", the light. But Deacon is a good name in my opinion. It is longer, less common and a bit prettier than Dean. As I didn't know deacons existed, I have no bad associations with the name. Even learning what they are didn't change that. And the anti-religion people down lower in the comments? Mmmm y'all should grow up and realize that what a person believes in a spiritual sort of way has literally no effect on your life in any way, let them practice whatever they want.

I’m just really sad at how one user seems to hate Christianity with a “burning passion”, and its followers, it sickens me and while you may not agree with them, at least respect them and don’t shame those who choose to follow. Also, don’t describe your thoughts on my religion with “burning passion”, because that is really disrespectful to me and other Christians. I’m not even just exaggerating, I’m genuinely offended by this.

Anyway, about the name Deacon, I’m not too big on title names (Although Hunter is great), but Deacon sounds really good. Granted, it is holy, but it isn’t as bad as Pope, something too holy for the average person. Decent name though, not gonna lie.

John Deacon was the bassist for Queen.

This doesn't seem like it should be a name to me - sort of like, "This is our son Deacon, and here are his brothers Priest, Minister, and Altar Server." Generally speaking, I don't like "job title" names, especially ones that are for jobs people still hold in the modern world.

I like it just because it's not super common. I suppose if you like the name Dean but don't want to use that, Deacon could be a good alternative.

Deacon Frost is a evil vampire in the movie 'Blade' played by Stephen Dorff.

Wow, people. Just wow. Why should the origin of the name make you hate it? And you idiots who hate religious people need to try to tolerate people who have different beliefs than you. I am not religious, but I still respect people who are. I respect them because they are different, and our differences are what make us interesting. Narrow-minded people like you guys are the reason our world is falling apart. Just think of Hitler. He hated people who were Jewish because they were different than he was. The KKK hates people who are black because they are different. See where I am going with this? Hate is the undoing of all mankind. I am not a pacifist, I am not a hippie, but I still think that hate and fighting aren't the answer. I used to hate people who were different, too. I used to dislike Jewish people because the one Jewish person I knew was mean to me, and that made me think all of them were like that. But then I met a girl who was Jewish, and now we are good friends. I respect Jewish people now. I may not agree with everything everyone believes in, but I try to tolerate them.

Now, back to the name Deacon. I think the name Deacon is a fine name. A famous bearer is the bassist John Deacon of Queen. I would honestly name my son this. I think it is a very nice name, and I like the nickname Deaky.

I completely agree with @lillyanna, you are really good with words by the way.

However, I don't like this name.
― Anonymous User  9/16/2020
I totally agree with the users Alaric and lillyanna!

Anyway, I love the meaning and sound of the name Deacon. It's a cool masculine name! :)

This name is tacky and trashy, and is a title only.

The word comes originally from the Greek word diakonos, which means minister or servant. This can be seen in A Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament and Other Early Christian Literature fourth edition edited by Danker.

Geeze, you religion haters are just as bad as the religiously fanatic. Deacon is a fine name.
Alaric  4/3/2009
And what if Deacon turns out to be atheist or becomes a Satanist? This name just does not work for me; I don't trust organized religion and any name that sounds like only a die-hard religious zealot picked it turns me off.

The name annoys me big time. It's a religion-related profession, and I hate Christianity and all religions with a flaming passion. It doesn't sound particularly exciting anyway.

William Brodie, respectable city councillor by day and burglar by night in 18th century Edinburgh, was the historical figure who inspired R. L. Stevenson to create Jekyll and Hyde. Although 'Deacon' was his title rather than his given name, he is so well remembered only as "Deacon Brodie" that many people nowadays believe it to have been his actual name.

I named my son Deacon in 2001. I actually got the idea from the Blade movie with Deacon Frost. I think the name suits him fine.
jlmercier  3/6/2008
In the soap opera "The Bold and the Beautiful" there is a male character named Deacon.

Deacon is a name that has grown on me. It is a cool name, very masculine and handsome sounding.

I think that Deacon is a strong male name. I first heard it when I watched Blade and Stephen Dorff played a vampire named Deacon Frost.

Actress Reese Witherspoon and husband Ryan Phillippe have a son named Deacon.
