The name Desmond?

We're thinking about Desmond (Dezi as a nickname) as a name for our second son. Middle name is still to be determined.

  • I like the name Desmond but the nick name of Dezi?  Not my cup of tea but that's not what really matters.

  • Not crazy about it (sorry) Dezi sounds more feminine to me. In the end it is what you like that matters : )

  • Makes me think Desmond Tutu. But it's a nice enough name.
