"I love my name of Dessie. It is a unique name. I was named after my grandmother. I have never met anyone with my name. Very often, I am asked, "What is it short for?" Most times it is mispronounced. I always say it it is pronounced like "Jessie" but with a D. When I was much younger, I wouldn't correct anyone who mispronounced my name. But, someone told me that I was important and not to let it go by. That made me smile and since then, I have always followed that advice. Again, I loveo my name!" Apr. 1, 2015:
"My name Is Dessie and its very common for people to mispronounce my name. Some people call me Dezi, daisy and others. I'm used to it by now but when I say DESSIE I'm pretty sure those "S" are not "Z" and it's so annoying to babe to correct people. I got my name from my great grandmother and I absolutely love it I've always called my self by Dessie Marie because its different and I'm comfortable with that!" Jan. 23, 2013:
"We are planning to name our third child Dessie if it is a girl (it was my great-grandmothers name)...I can't find much info on it but was glad to see that all with the name like it!" Apr. 16, 2008:
"Never met anothre Dessie... Lots of people pronounce it--Dezi (as in Arnez) Haven't run across anything negative. Most people think it is very cool. Saw it in a book one time--meaning "Longed for, Wanted"" Oct. 22, 2007:
"People alway pronounce my name Jessie or Dezi. I really like my name, but i also hate it when people prounounce it wrong. I really like spelling my name diffrent though like: DesC even though its spelled Dessie.
I dont meet anyone with this name!!" May. 4, 2007:
"Dessie was my grandmothers name. She was a very strong, sweet, and loving g-ma ..I named my 1st baby girl after her, i think it's a pretty/unique name. i'll never forget the times we shared together.. peace" Jan. 6, 2007:
"I love my name for it is a combination of my parents' names. When I was still young, I thought that my name was kinda unique. People would mispronounce it as Deshi, Daisy, Days, and, etc. This has been the case every now and then. They'd often ask me if my name is short for Desiree or Jessica. One time, I thought of adding a new name to Dessie. I sometimes say my name during informal meetings as Dessie Marie. Ugh. I realized then that there's no other name that is sweeter than my name. I now don't use Dessie Marie. I am sticking to my name, "DESSIE". My missionary friend read my name as having the desire and the drive for better life.
Way to go, my namesake!" Feb. 20, 2006:
"People ALWAYS pronounce it wrong. They tend to slur the "s" so it sounds like Dezzi. It is intended to be pronounced like Jessie, but with a D at the begining. I have not met any other people with this name, other than my mother and my great grand mother. Sometimes people do spell it right, but more often than not, it is spelled wrong. And most of the time, people don't even understand what I'm saying when I say it. It is commonly mistaken for: Bessy, Dusty, Jessie, Desire, Destiny and a couple of times Desty. All in all, I love the name and I think it is beautiful and am very proud to have it as my name." Jul. 25, 2005:
"A very good friend of mine is named Dessie. I honestly think it's one of the most beautiful names you could give a person. And from the looks of it. Very unique.

"Det finns bra anledningar till att det inte e4r tille5tet att dcrika alkohol ne4r man e4r under 18. Jag tycker du e4r grym pe5 ve4ldigt me5nga se4tt, men eftersom du dricker alkohol se5 ne5r du liksom inte riktigt toppen , jag tycker bara det e4r helt fel att gf6ra det ne4r man e4r under 18. visst, folk gf6r som dom vill, men alkohol ska inte dcrikas av BARN, dvs folk under 18 e5r. Sen e4r jag ju en se5n de4r heltre5kig person som tycker att folk inte ska dcrika alkohol f6ver huvud taget.. skillnaden e4r att ne4r man e4r 18+ e4r det tille5tet, och de5 kan man ju inte riktigt se4ga emot pe5 samma se4tt. Jag fyller 18 i april och le4r ve4l vara en av fe5 nyblivna 18-e5ringar som inte drar ut pe5 krogen och super skallen av mig bara ff6r att jag kan ..linnolsson svarar:januari 27th, 2012 at 10:26Det beror nog helt pe5 vad man menar med toppen om du pratar om en ff6rebild se5 beror pe5 det pe5 vem som ska se mig som det.Att jag dricker alkohol pe5verkar dock inte vad jag gf6r eller vilken topp JAG vill ne5 sara svarar:januari 28th, 2012 at 12:06Nej sje4lvklart inte -det sa jag ve4l inte heller? Med toppen menar jag bara toppen i MINA f6gon -en liten e5sikt bland maaaassa andra. Just alkohol e4r ett ke4nsligt e4mne ff6r mig, jag vet vad det kan gf6ra med folk, familjer, ve4nner mm (nu se4ger jag inte att det kommer he4nda dig, ff6rhoppningsvis vet du vart gre4nsen ge5r!) och det e4r inget vidare. Varff6r tror du jag inte klarar alkohol? Jag vet en kille som tog kf6rkort pe5 sin 18-e5rsdag, festa till det pe5 kve4llen och idag sitter han i rullstol, pga alkohol som fe5r folk att gf6ra korkade saker. Kag ber dig bara te4nka en eller tve5 ge5nger innan du skriver om alkohol, du har unga le4sare och dom vill se4kert gf6ra aaallt som deras stora idol Linn Olsson gf6r! Ju tidigare man bf6rjar, desto farligare.. visst, det e4r din blogg och du skriver vatusan du vill, men e4nde5. Vem vill pe5verka en 13-e5ring till att bf6rja festa till det lite ff6r mycket pe5 helgerna? Du e4r en grym ff6rebild pe5 me5nga se4tt, men pe5 ne5gra andra delar sjunker du i mina f6gon -som sagt, min e5sikt e4r ju bara en fis i rymden, visst. Jag vet det, jag e4r inte dum liksom haha. Men det finns vissa saker man bf6r he5lla lite le5gt." Dec. 29, 2012:

"My name is Dessie and I hate it when people pronounce it wrong....It is truely unique so I never have to use my last name when it comes to my friends..." Oct. 11, 2006:
"When I was a child I hated my name because I was always picked on about it. I have been called Dezzi, Stephanie, Jessie, Destiny, and Dancy, just to name a few (I am sure every Dessie has been called these at one time or another.) I was named after my great grandma who was the kind of Christian lady that I hope one day to be like. I LOVE my name now, because I know I am part of my great grandma's legacy." Mar. 14, 2006:
