Morning name fans, what are your opinions on Daphne? Thank you!

reastie Mon 22-Apr-13 14:21:15

I really like it. I wanted it for DD but DH vetoed it. He said it sounded too old fashioned angry

That's exactly what Daphne conjures up for me too squoosh!!! No idea why.

Daphnes are always terrible drips.

Love it. Beautiful name.

When I read Mallory Towers I thought it was pronounced day-fun. I recently saw a documentary from the 1950s in which a baby was named Daphne pr. by her father as daff-un-ee.

Other than that, the scooby doo and Frasier connections are ok.

It's probably in the next tranche of names due for a revival, so you'd be ahead of that curve.

It's a name I want to like iyswim but all I can think of is scooby doo.

Absolutely beautiful.

I love it.

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

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

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

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

Love it!

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

Nice. I also like Josephine, Serephine,

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

Makes me think of Scooby Doo!

Not one of my favourite names sorry.

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

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

birdofthenorth Sun 07-Apr-13 10:21:36

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

katolla Sun 07-Apr-13 08:28:43

Des and Daphne

Rhubarbgarden Sun 07-Apr-13 07:51:26

I like it.

exoticfruits Sat 06-Apr-13 22:35:50

Dreadful-probably why you have never met one!

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.
