His character :

Dwight prefers to please his spirit rather than his undeniable charm. He is very intelligent and demonstrates it in all circumstances. He gives more credit to what is logical than to the fruit of intuition. This trait makes him an excellent leader. Indeed, he has the ability to convince the most skeptical and to follow him. He leads the others to run after him because Dwight does not wait to act. He is a modest boy who does not like to talk about him. He can be very demonstrative in his hours but in general, he is shy and discreet. This does not prevent him from having real and deep feelings.


Denis is the main derivative of this first name.

His party :

We celebrate Dwight on October 9, at the same time as Saint Denis.
