"My name is Dorsey. An interesting point: I am female. I have never met another Dorsey, male or otherwise. Although it seems far more popular as a last name. Apparently one out of the twelve girls in all of history to have this name. :) When I was little, the only reason I could find to dislike my name was the complete lack of "little key-chains" in my name. Other than that I have no complaints. In fact, I truly appreciate having a unique name. I was once in a class of twenty with four Sarah's." Mar. 6, 2008:
