Are there any other accepted spellings of daisy?

Any 'regional variations' ?

MrsLettuce Wed 23-Mar-16 22:49:02

Madelief is dutch for daisy (and an accepted name). No idea other than that though confused

MrsLettuce Wed 23-Mar-16 22:52:24

Oh, is a nn of Margaret of course, from the flowers Marguerite.

Daisey I have seen! But Daisy is the prettiest version by far

No votes for 'daisie' then?

I have one in class coming up. Poor daisie.

How do you pronounce the Dutch version?

MrsLettuce Thu 24-Mar-16 10:00:29

Thus: Madelief

And no, no, no to 'creative' spellings of Daisy! Just looks illiterate.

When I worked in the States I taught a Daysee. Your Daisie could be much worse off grin

Why on earth do you want to subject your child to a lifetime of 'no its spelled differently'. It doesn't make a child unique, it makes their parents look dumb.

I think her sister has an equally dodgy name...

Along the lines of 'ray-shell'


I was close! I like that. Almost similar to Madeleine.

I was once served by a Joolie.

I think Daisie looks pretty, like Maisie. But yes, lots of misspellings ahead. I have a common name though that had a few variants and the frequent misspellings I have now learnt to let it wash over me.

I know someone who was going to call her baby Dayzee, thank goodness she had a boy

I would spell it M-a-r-g-a-r-e-t. wink

It's nice to use a sweet nickname when a child is little, or with familiars. But, it's also nice to have a proper, serious, grownup name when the occasion calls for it. That way, you get the best of both.
