We love both!

We're not massive fans of Maisie, but absolutely love Maisy grin but know it will probably be spelt as Maisie, so might be better to go with Daisy?

I find both too childish and cutesy, sorry.

But if I had to choose, I'd choose Daisy.

At a push, I'd go for Maisy.

PurplePaws16 Fri 07-Oct-16 14:28:36

I know, but they're the only ones we love!

Thank you

I love Daisy.

Maisie is better for girl and woman. Daisy is just a cute name for a little girl or a cow.

Daisy, but I'm with you in that Maisy is the better spelling

Isn't Maisie the Mouse?

I wanted to call Dd Daisy but it didn't work with the surname.

Maisy is the mouse. Maisie is the more traditional spelling. I like them both, I know of a few Daisy's but only one Maisie so it depends if you want a popular name.

I like them both. Maisie was on my list but DH thought it was too cutesy sad

Daisy. It sounds marginally less cutsie than Maisy.

Daisy. Just because I think it's a nicer name then Maisie. Plus I know a beautiful Daisy. Imo these names are no more cutesy then a lot of really popular girls names..molly/Rosie/poppy etc..i would use it if you love it.

Love Daisy - DS1 would have been Daisy

Of the two, Daisy.

But if you like flower names, why not use something a little less cutie-pie.

Like Iris, or Violet.
Or Artemisia (bit out there, but way cool!)

Absoloutely Maisie/Maisy.

Daisy. You could always go for Margaret / Marguerite and use Daisy as the nickname

katemess12 Fri 07-Oct-16 21:35:01

Daisy is infinitely nicer.

Maisie is a mouse.

Of the two, Daisy. But they are both too cutesy IMO.

I have both of these in my immediate family, one is my daughter and one my sister! I will say, I thought 'too cutesy' when my sister was born (I was 17), but over the years I've got used to it. She's not a girlie cutesy type but is a very cool and independent teen and it still suits her.

Really sweet nns for a chubsy baby, but inescapably infantile imo. Daisy, being a flower, is marginally less graceless. Maisie just reminds me of a threadbare chintz sofa or Mrs Tiggywinkle or something.

Neither. Both very childish. Can you imagine a GP or solicitor called any of these names and take them seriously?
