  • "My name is Dalton. My parents gave me that name after my grandfather. I like the name most of the time, because it's very unique. I've never met another person with the name. The bad thing is, it sounds like a last name, since it has generally always been a surname. So sometimes I feel like my full name is two last names. Also, I hate when people say "did you say dolphin?" Yes. My parents named me dolphin. There is also a pronunciation issue with the name. Some people say it with a soft "T" and others pronounce the "T". I personally prefer the soft "T"." Aug. 31, 2017: Report as inappropriate
