For a girl?

Pretty and not that widely used - I like it. Works well in most other languages too.

Pretty but too close to diarrhoea for oportunistic class mates :p

Makes me think of an 8 yr old Daria in our street, she's Polish I think...

I like it. There was a doc on ER called Daria. Pronounced to rhyme with aria rather than Maria

I liked it until i read the diarrhoea reference

But most names, in fact almost all, can be teased by imaginative class mates e.g. William = Willy, Ellie = Smellie Ellie etc. I wouldn't worry too much about that, personally.

Also isn't the emphasis with Daria on the first syllable (unlike Diorrh-EEA, on the last)?

I had to think about that then, Darnsarfupnorf blush

Do you think it'd work with a D surname?

Straight away think of Daria which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Daria is what I think of.

It's not so bad a namesake though. I liked her.

I like it, really nice name. Not sure about with a D surname, alliterative names can sound a bit funny sometimes, depends what it is though.

I know a Polish Daria, she's lovely. It's a good name because it's both unusual and easy to pronounce / spell.

deemented Sat 20-Aug-11 16:01:10

Ooohh... lots of positives! That's rare on MN smile

Now i just need to find a lovely Welsh middle name to go with!

"Pretty but too close to diarrhoea for oportunistic class mates :p"

That was my first thought too blush

GlaikitFizzog Sun 21-Aug-11 19:09:34

Do you think poopy when you see Poppy??? I really don't see(or hear) diarrhoea in Daria!

mopsyflopsy Sun 21-Aug-11 19:57:19

And what about Willy when you see Will ???

Lilyloo Sun 21-Aug-11 20:03:41

Was that the name of the little girl in finding Nemo ?

umf Sun 21-Aug-11 20:53:27

I had a Romanian friend called Daria, think it's lovely. It's a bit stronger than all these Eva, Ava, Mia names that are around at the moment.

MamaLazarou Mon 22-Aug-11 12:48:45

Diarrhoea here, too, I am afraid.

"Do you think poopy when you see Poppy???"

No - I think 'Ploppy'.

Summerbird73 Mon 22-Aug-11 12:50:05

oo i remember the cartoon too - as i recall she was rather cool

yep do it!

Mondayschild78 Tue 23-Aug-11 12:09:30

I like it and am considering it for DC1 too if she is a girl, although haven't yet discussed it with DH!! grin

Loved the cartoon btw
