English, Irish


This dashing little boys' name is starting to really catch on, perhaps because it shortens so well. Dez, Dezzy, Dezi, they're all super-cute. A smart and sophisticated name that fits wonderfully with surnames of any origin, it's actually originally Irish. Our strongest heritage for this sophisticated name is the kindly Desmond Tutu, who won the 1984 Nobel Peace Prize.
