Makes me think of Dexter's Lab (awesome show) and The Offspring.

For those reasons... I like it, lol. But I wouldn't use it.

It's a really cool name that I would probably never use. I do like it though.

After the show Dexter, I have come to LOVE the name and I really like Dex. With that being said, I still do not think I would ever use it. I think it's one of those names that could be ultra-cool or ultra-nerdy on a kid.....and it would be all up to the kid to pull it off.

I like it in sound and pop cultural reference, but the meaning isn't particularly interesting or cool. I would possibly use this name, but if so, it would most likely be a middle name.

I agree. Dexter is either ultra-nerdy or ultra-cool. Totally depends on the kid. My husband is an IT director, and we're both mildly addicted to World of Warcraft, so I tend to shy away from the nerdy names, just because I know my kids are gonna be nerdy.

I think it's a really cute name, though.

Yeah I get the nerdy vibe from it too. My dh and I used to LOVE watching Dexter's Laboratory and I think the nerd vibe is a carry over from that.

I do agree that it is one of those names that could go one way or another. I do really like the sound of it.
