What do you think ? Too cutesy ?

So you know any ?

It's a lovely name smile I don't know any personally but model Daisy Lowe totally rocks the name!

Not my personal favourite, but probably no cutesier than Poppy and other names currently also in vogue

Sleepyhoglet Thu 30-Jul-15 11:17:24

Lovely

Fails the appropriate for serious adult test same bracket as honey poppy Millie. Legions of mothers who have chosen those names huff and puff but that's my view. 40 year old daisy looks ridiculous.

It's cute for a lovely wee baby but for a grown woman, I just can't see it.

It's a lovely name

For a cow

I'm sorry but it just always makes me think of a cow. I know a couple and am fairly indifferent on them so maybe that has coloured my view.

I treated myself to some Urban Decay make up recently and the lovely assistant was called Daisy May. I seem to have met more adult Daisys lately than ever.

I know a couple of Daisys, but they are dogs.

It's always been a favourite of mine. I think Daisy Waugh did ok. DH didn't like it.

My cat grin

There are a couple of teenage Daisy's around here.

Agree that it's cute for a baby or little girl, but not great on a grown woman.

thejoysofboys Thu 30-Jul-15 12:30:02

It wouldn't be my choice. Defintely too cutesy.

But then I'm not a girly girl and would probably pick a fairly strong sounding girls name TBH.

twinjocks Thu 30-Jul-15 23:04:26

I love it. My daughter is Daisy, she's almost 21 and I still love her name. And although she's tiny and beautiful, she's not a stereotypical girlie girl either.

I say go for it!

MrsBungle Thu 30-Jul-15 23:06:52

It always used to make me think "cow" or "cutesy" but my friend has a 3 yo Daisy and I'm now used to it and like it.

Lunastarfish Thu 30-Jul-15 23:27:01

My DP desperately wanted to call our DD Daisy. I do think it's a lovely name but I'm in the camp of its great for a 4 year old but not so great for a 40 year old.

Daphnedolittle Fri 31-Jul-15 14:23:03

I think it's lovely. I know an 18 year old Daisy and it suits her. She's blonde and pretty and she just looks like a Daisy. I think it's fine for a 40 year old as well.

JonSnowKnowsNowt Fri 31-Jul-15 14:27:25

I think it's a lovely name, and a traditional one too. Isn't it traditionally a nickname for Margaret? I would choose the longer name, and use Daisy as a shortening. I have done that with two of my DC (not Daisy, but other names). One of them has decided he likes the longer version of his name better so he uses that now though family still use the shortened version. That sidesteps the 40-year-old with cutesy name issue, if it is an issue.

LooseSeal Fri 31-Jul-15 14:30:13

I find it a bit too cutesy.

I think the test is would you as an adult like to be named Daisy? If you'd be happy to go into a job interview, or chair an important meeting or just introduce yourself to new people as Dasiy then go for it. If however you think you might feel a bit silly, as I think I would, then don't.

I had a great aunt Daisy, and have a relative in her 70s who was named Daisy after my great aunt. It doesn't sound cutesy to me. It sounds like the name of a sensible older woman, good at knitting and brilliant at making scones.

LarrytheCucumber Sat 01-Aug-15 13:29:49

It's cute for a lovely wee baby but for a grown woman, I just can't see it. I had a Great Aunt Daisy, so to me Daisy is an old lady name. Of course she was also a young woman and a middle aged woman before I knew her. Nothing wrong with Daisy at all.
Just noticed someone else had a Great Aunt Daisy. Snap.

I know a Daisy in her 30s. She's lovely, and exudes professionalism.
