valley; church official
Raise your hand if you associate Dean with the head of a college. Fair enough, but also think about Dean this way: as a retro first name that’s simple and direct. Formerly only a surname, it’s been a hit with American parents since the 19th century. It comes from the Old English “dene,” meaning “valley.” But it’s also the title of a Roman Catholic church official and the name of the sensitive brother on “Supernatural,” Dean Winchester.
