Always missing my
I like the name a lot--the show would be my only concern (I haven't seen it but I understand the main character is a serial killer, right?). I don't think it sounds nerdy these days--I actually think it sounds very cool, and it has a nice meaning, too.
...and about a serial killer? Yikes! Stupid media.....
hmmm, will have to talk about this with DH
can anyone clarify the contents of this show? is it wildly popular? i.e. will we look like we named baby after the show?
I like the name but not sure if I name a son like that.... specially because for boys names I prefer Latino ones, but for obvious reasons lol

Dexter is a show that originally started out on Showtime, but then moved to some mainstream station (NBC, or ABC, or Fox, one of those). Its based on a book by Jeff Lindsay.
This is what Amazon says about the first book in the series:
"Meet Dexter Morgan. He's a highly respected lab technician specializing in blood spatter for the Miami Dade Police Department. He's a handsome, though reluctant, ladies' man. He's polite, says all the right things, and rarely calls attention to himself. He's also a sociopathic serial killer whose "Dark Passenger" drives him to commit the occasional dismemberment.
Mind you, Dexter's the good guy in this story.
Adopted at the age of four after an unnamed tragedy left him orphaned, Dexter's learned, with help from his pragmatic policeman father, to channel his "gift," killing only those who deal in death themselves. But when a new serial killer starts working in Miami, staging elaborately grisly scenes that are, to Dexter, an obvious attempt at communication from one monster to another, the eponymous protagonist finds himself at a loss. Should he help his policewoman sister Deborah earn a promotion to the Homicide desk by finding the fiend? Or should he locate this new killer himself, so he can express his admiration for the other's "art?" Or is it possible that psycho Dexter himself, admittedly not the most balanced of fellows, is finally going completely insane and committing these messy crimes himself?
Despite his penchant for vivisection, it's hard not to like Dexter as his coldly logical personality struggles to emulate emotions he doesn't feel and to keep up his appearance as a caring, unremarkable human being. Breakout author Jeff Lindsay's plot is tense and absorbing, but it's the voice of Dexter and his reactions to the other characters that will keep readers glued to Darkly Dreaming Dexter, as well as making it one of the most original and highly recommended serial killer stories in a long time."
So take from that what you will.
Hope this helps!
