I have always loved the name Daphne. Love it! I also like Penelope, but hate Penny.

I really love Daphne, really gorgeous.
It was on my list a while ago.
DD knows one who is about 8, but I have never met another one.

Des and Daphne

Want to like it but it reminds me of that incredibly annoying girlband Daphne & Celeste, sorry!

Kittykatmacbill Mon 08-Apr-13 19:58:51

Love it! Really wanted it on the list but dh said no!

IwishIwasmoreorganised Mon 08-Apr-13 20:01:51

Makes me think of Scooby Doo!

Not one of my favourite names sorry.

Nice. I also like Josephine, Serephine,

Great name! Very retro and I know a lovely Daphne too.

Doodledumdums Wed 10-Apr-13 00:10:40

Love it!

lisianthus Wed 10-Apr-13 00:19:12

Sorry, not keen, but then my associations for the name are Scooby-Doo and Daphne the stripper who married Des on Neighbours.

fussychica Wed 10-Apr-13 17:47:39

...and you get called Daff for short. Shame it's a lovely name.

Makes me think of Jack Lemmon in Some Like It Hot- "and I'm Daphne!"

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
