"As a matter of fact I was one of those boys named Destry in 1964. Growing up people would always add a "O" before the "Y" (Destroy). There were a few other minor variants. My nickame growing up was Desi, since people could not pronounce my name right. After graduating high school and joining the US Army, people still could not pronounce my name correct. I started going by Dusty since people now wanted to change the "E" to a "U" (Dustry). After going by Dusty for several years, people finally started getting my first name of Destry pronounced correct." Jul. 30, 2019:
"I named my son Destry and i love that name. It is very unique and I have only ever ran into one other person named Destry. My mother gave me the idea from the "Destry" movies also. I actually found the movie on TV while my son was a month or so old and I watched it for the first time. It was a great story!!

"My oldest son is named Destry. People always ask for a repeat when they hear it. It's obviously very uncommon. My husband used to pretend he was the cowboy from Destry Rides Again when he was little and the name just stuck with us. An old and distant friend of mine named his girl Destry. He couldn't remember where he heard it from but just that he liked it. When I told him my son was named Destry he got silent. ha ha ha! He thinks its not real masculine....but he's very wrong. Its a strong name and he wears it well." Aug. 2, 2009:
