Does anyone know the origin and meaning of the name "Deybi"?
I believe it to be used in Latin America.

Sounds like someone wanted to name their daughter "Debbie", and came out with Deybi (that's how it sounded to them).

Common underclass Latin-American name-giving behavior.

For example, the parents of (Brewer's pitcher) Yovani Gallardo probably wanted to name him Giovanni, but came out with that funny spelling.

The good thing about misspelling (sp?) it that every Spanish speaker knows how to pronounce that name. Too bad nobody knows how to write it, when spoken.

Thanks, fb.

Actually it's the name of a boy in Peru. It looked odd to me.

I ran into a waiter at the hotel I was staying at in Cancun whose name was Aldrin (pronounced Aldreen, of course). I asked him about the unusual name for a Spanish-speaking person of Mexican heritage. He said he was born just days after the first moon landing and his mother had been so impressed by this event that she wanted to name him after one of the astronauts -- Buzz Aldrin.
