About
Dexter is an occupational name, denoting that the bearer is of a certain occupation, in this case the dyeing of cloth. The name derives from the Old English “dighester”, from the word “deag” which means 'dye'. Dexter is a male only term while the female term was Dyster.::Centuries ago, Dexter was someone who dyed clothing; on TV, Dexter took care of a different kind of dying, namely murdering people as a serial killer on the eponymous series. But parents are probably not considering either meaning when they choose Dexter for their sonthey just like the cool factor of a name with an x. It also hits a high note with singers: Elvis Costello and Diana Krall named one of their twin boys Dexter in 2006, and Charlotte Church named her son Dexter in 2009.
