In both senses of the word!

I've heard it's a name used mostly by chavs

What do you reckon?

i don't think it's a "chav" name in the slightest!!
it is becoming very popular though,i know at least 5 under the age of 4

I know two and they're v nice girls but are seven.

I don't think it's chav either, like it, but in a small primary school we already have three - always think it's a shame, they're always known with second initial too (eg, Daisy M). Also Sykes, they're 7 and 6 too.

I think it is unfortunately. It's not dog awful but it's mostly used by chavvy types. Especially here oop north!

It is a bit. Put it this way - I can think of a million classier choices! Daisy Mae galore round here, besides - it's a cow's name!

I have a beautiful labradoodle called Daisy!

It's getting popular now I think.
More 'common' are people who use the word chav grin

Downmarket, yes it is rather.

Lily feels more classy.

It has absolutely ventured into the realms of chav and/or west highland terrier name.

15/20 years ago it was fresh and edgy (think Gatsby inspired/Daisy Lowe etc.)

Now it's just dated and naff.

I think it's v pretty and a vintage classic. I don't see how it could be 'chavvy'. Everything seems to be classed as chavvy on here nowadays -really odd!

I think it's a very pretty name.

Its used rather a lot now, but think its still pretty. I know a few and they're all really lovely people.

I know three baby Daisys - none chav at all - all born in the last year.

My impression is it is popular at the moment - along with other flower names: Poppy, Lily, Rose, Iris.

But still a pretty name & pretty flower

I get the impression that the op isn't seriously considering using this name herself hmm
First time poster too......

BabyDancer83 Wed 28-Oct-09 15:20:00

i know of a northerner who i would definately describe as common who called her baby Daisy (or Dais-eh) but i always thought it was quite timeless and classic like Molly, in and out of fashion but always quite pretty.

spenthen Wed 28-Oct-09 16:14:09

It's nice for littlies (which is just as well cos I know tons of em) but I struggle to imagine a menopausal woman named Daisy.

Bessie123 Wed 28-Oct-09 16:18:30

cheeky monkeys, it is not chavvy at all.

Salonly Thu 29-Oct-09 20:27:10

I think Daisy is a lovely name and not 'chav' hmm

HerHonesty Thu 29-Oct-09 21:58:43

used a lot.

paddy0 Thu 29-Oct-09 23:31:33

It's definitely not posh. I have to agree with the poster that said it was once edgy but is now naff. I feel the same about Poppy and Ruby. These three are very similar in terms of style.

I haven't read the whole thread but my two pence worth is that Daisy is quite cute, and quite refreshing, more of a classic than Poppy/Honey/Rainbow etc Lovely for a child but lacks a bit of gravitas for an adult. i wouldn't call it chavvy though. A good nickname. I know a Margaret who is referred to as Daisy.

I know of several little Daisys so it is rather populat - one of dd's best friends (3) has this name but deffo not 'common' in the other sense. Tasteful pretty name imo but not at all edgy or fashion forward if that's what you're looking for.
