Do you like it? How many do you know? What sort of a girl do you think of?

Absolutely love Daisy and would of used it myself if it went with my surname ( sadly it doesn’t) .
Also like Jessica

I know one. Don't like it sorry op, think it's a bit of a silly name and can't imagine a grown up daisy.
Think of a daisy being prime minister, a lawyer, judge etc.

That's what worries me, that it's a bit marmite. To me Daisy is a bit bohemian but clever too. I picture her living on a farm having a happy wholesome childhood. However I've realised other people think " silly " as pp or a bit tasteless. I guess I have to decide how much it bothers me what others think. ( I don't live on a farm!)

I like it. I don't know any, plenty of other flower names though.

Love the name.

I used to think about what job different names would suit and then realised that it was no different than assigning types of work to pretty, delicate girls, big burly girls (like me) or even boys or girls.

I worked for many years in a retirement home and the names varied from what we would see as traditional old fashioned names to quite modern sounding ones.

think of a job, and google truck driver daisy, judge daisy etc there will always be someone with your chosen name.

The name is pretty, if you like it use it!

I think it’s nice as a middle name but a bit too cute for a grown woman’s first name.

I love it and if had another DD would definitely consider it.
Only thing off putting to me is that I love it as its quirky, slightly bohemian etc but is now so insanely popular- in top 20 popular, which is not what I like at all.

I think it's lovely and not necessarily a 'little girl' name. When I was little, one of the neighbours, who used to babysit for us, was called Daisy, so I've got a positive association with it for grown ups too.

Pibplob Wed 11-Oct-17 14:05:56

I don't like it, however, I love Maisie which sounds pretty much the same so not sure why I dislike daisy! 😂

Farontothemaddingcrowd Wed 11-Oct-17 14:09:26

Just had a Google and found a judge and solicitor called Daisy. V pretty name.

WaxOnFeckOff Wed 11-Oct-17 14:10:59

Margaret with Daisy as nn? Ten gives more options as an adult.

I'm not a daisy can tbh. Bit of a toddler or dogs name to me. Maisie doesn't have the same feel to me either pib

TonicAndTonic Wed 11-Oct-17 14:14:03

I do like it, but I'm afraid to me it is a bit of a 'little girl' name rather than a name for a grown woman, same goes for names like Maisie, Poppy, Molly, Lottie. But it might just be because all the girls I know with those names are little!

grannycake Wed 11-Oct-17 14:16:03

I have a Daisy in her 30s - she has a grown up job in IT and her name isn't holding her back

Regressionconfession Wed 11-Oct-17 14:36:28

I love it!!!

jojowilko Wed 11-Oct-17 14:37:54

Makes me think of cows and Daisy Duke. Sorry OP.

Surfingwhippet Wed 11-Oct-17 14:41:26

I love Daisy too!

Namehunting001 Wed 11-Oct-17 14:43:24

Daisy is lovely - as is Tulip!

Imabanana Wed 11-Oct-17 14:43:24

I can definitely picture a grown up mature woman called Daisy but if other people ( future employers) can't I don't want to give her a disadvantage. Good to hear about your daughter grannycake.
For some reason I'm not so keen on Masie, maybe why pp feel the other way around!
Other names in the background are :

kaytee87 Wed 11-Oct-17 15:08:54

As above, Daisy is a nn for Margaret so you have that option then if she decides she doesn't like Daisy in the future she can use Margaret.

twinjocks Wed 11-Oct-17 15:22:35

My Daisy is 23 - I loved and still love her name - and it suits her just as much now she's an adult as when she was a little girl. OP, your description "bohemian but clever too" is actually spot-on!!

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 11-Oct-17 15:48:08

Daisy is lovely !

Wishfulmakeupping Wed 11-Oct-17 15:51:53

It's a very pretty and sweet name I think it's suits a child more than adult too but it is a nice name

DavetheCat2001 Wed 11-Oct-17 16:29:37

I know one Daisy.

My cat was called Daisy so I always think of her when I hear it.

bridgetreilly Wed 11-Oct-17 16:50:07

Marguerite could also be known as Daisy. I like it better than Margaret.
