"This is the name we gave our firstborn.It was taken from his parents Da(vid) and (Kar)en and was also a "jumble" for his grandmother "Edna". We liked it because it was short,easy to pronounce, easy to spell , wasn't weird and we personally didn't have anyone we knew that was named that. He says he's happy with his name." Oct. 6, 2016:

"I very rarely meet someone else named Dean. I feel that it's getting more popular, on TV and media. (I believe there's a character in the comics named Dean). People always call me Dean Dean the Dancing Machine after the bit player on the gong show, Gene Gene. It's a strange reference. I expect Dean Martin." Jan. 13, 2006:
