Meaning & Origins

Transferred use of the surname. Although this is now a male given name, the word that gave rise to the surname originally denoted a female dyer, from Old English dēag ‘dye’ + -estre, feminine ending of agent nouns. However, the distinction of gender was already lost in Middle English. The name coincides in form with Latin dexter ‘right-handed, auspicious’, and may sometimes have been chosen because of this.
1,290th in the U.S.
French: from a diminutive of Occitan peloke ‘peel’, Gascon peloko ‘grain-husk’, probably applied as a nickname for a miser or a poor wretch.
9,856th in the U.S.
