Du- names

"DU" baby names beginning or starting with Du- are used more often as masculine names.

These boy names were at the apex of their popularity during 1980-1989 (adoption of 0.036%) and are almost as popular today (adoption 0.017%, 53.4%), but with names like Duncan, Durward, Dusty, Dudley and Duwayne becoming somewhat dated. Duke (#666) and Dustin (#434) are two of the more contemporarily stylish names for newborns in this list, and there is a revival in baby name popularity for Duke. Durr (top 3%) and Duty (5%) are familiar Du- last names.
