"My name is Delton. I was born in 1958 in Northeast Texas. Although Delton is my middle name, I have always been called Delton. I was named after an uncle. The name is rare, but not unknown in this area. I run into another Delton once in awhile. Except for being called Delbert or Dalton ever so often, it hasn't been a bad name to have." Jan. 7, 2011:
