We liked it with dd1 & dd2 but nevet used it. Family say we'd regret not using it again.
But were unsure as you can see from previous thread we like Alice and Annie too. Annie we have liked with dd1&2 also. Alice is a fairly new like.

Absolutely love it

I love it. It's very pretty and I like that bellis perennis, Latin for 'common Daisy' means pretty and everlasting smile

All 3 names are lovely. I think I like Annie best.

Daisy is lovely, I considered it for DD but DH vetoed it. She did end up with a flower name though smile

Love it. I have one, she loves it. She loves having her own 'motif' and is proud when she wears something with Daisies on.

I like it - much nicer than Alice or Annie.

Give you my answer, do? wink
Nice name, nice meaning
Not that common, taught one -she was lovely
Not many famous ones Daisy Donovan?
Not many cultural refs, song aside, Lazy daisy confused, daisy+tom ( was that a..ahem..daisy chain?)
Daisy is lovely, use it.
Better than Annie (she'll come out/get your gun) Alice is okay prefer Alicia. nn Lissy
Also daisy chain photos and daisy dresses will be beautiful <sticks tongue out at all saying twee at me>

StupidBloodyKindle Sun 17-May-15 23:45:27

Sun'll come out

Daisy is a cow's name.

Sophronia Mon 18-May-15 00:06:35

I much prefer Annie.

FireCanal Mon 18-May-15 00:10:19

Alice or Annie much better.

Also always think of a cow first...

I like it for a little girl, but I dislike it for an adult. To me it conjures up the image of someone who's flighty and fey, a "dizzy ditsy Daisy".

I also think it's getting a bit old hat, it was a popular name when my DD was born nearly eight years ago when people first started using twee, old fashioned names again.

Love it. Wish I'd used it too.
Can do marguerite for adult name if worried about that and use Daisy from day 1!

I think it's pretty but better on a baby than a grown up.

I love Alice and would have Anna nn Annie.

Love it

Awful. Fine for a toddler sounds downright silly on an adult woman. Imagine running a team in a bank for example or standing up in court whilst saddled with a dreadful cutesy name like daisy poppy or honey?

I have a Daisy who is now 27. She loves her name but my lovely MIL did think cow's name when she was born. My posher GM thought servants name! They got used to it pretty quickly though. She does hate the Daisy, Daisy give me your answer do though!

BubGal13 Mon 18-May-15 08:58:09

I adore it only put off by recent popularity. Think its sunny, upbeat, feminine, slightly bohemian.

KERALA1 Mon 18-May-15 11:21:45

Which is fine unless your dd ends up being serious and bookish with a job that requires her to have gravitas. Then being called Daisy, Poppy, Honey boo boo or something sounds daft. Sorry but I hate all these flipsy dipsy names for girls really gets my goat.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Mon 18-May-15 11:23:38

I love Daisy. Much prefer it to Alice or Annie.

Mintyy Mon 18-May-15 11:26:06

Love it. The oldest member of my extended family (95) is called Daisy. It is a beautiful name.

When they grow up Kerala they will be the norm and no one will raise an eyebrow.
