Personal experiences with the name Dion

I named my son Dionte and we call him Dion for short. From day one, he has been a leader. He excells at everything he does, is great in school and dominates on the football field. He leads like he was born to do it but has no trouble following the right things. He has a passion for learning. In our family, he is the middle child and only boy so he's a great mediator as well. He will be 18 in 3 months and will graduate in May of 2010 and we are SOOOOO excited to see all of this thirst and hunger to excell that he has be put to good use in the real world. He is destined to be a "difference-maker".
