The name has been used as a pet form of Candace, though as the pronunciation "can-DAY-see" has become old-fashioned, the association with it is much weakened.

Daisy is also used as a nickname of Margaret or Marguerite, because the French word for the daisy flower is "marguerite".

Daisy is Old English and means the eye of the day or Vision. People who have this name tend to be able to see prophetically. In the Bible it says: "My people persih without vision."

When I tell people my name is Stacy, if they don't hear me right, they call me this name, Daisy. I think it's a little girls' name, but very cute.

Daisy is a very sweet name even though it sounds more like something you would name a cow than a person.

There's an old song that goes:
Daisy, Daisy,
Give me your answer do
I'm half crazy over the love of you
It won't be a fancy marriage
I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle made for two"

I really like the name Daisy. But I think of it more as a cartoon name. No offense. But I think of it as a pure name also.

Daisy is cute but it seems more fitting for an animal. If my Basset Hound had been a girl I would have used the name Daisy. We got a boy so we named him Hoover.

My name is Daisy Ruth. My mother chose my name because her father's name was Desiderio but they called him Desy and my grandmother's name is Margarita, which is a flower in Mexico, that here in the U.S. is called Daisy, and I already have a cousin named Margarita (Maggie) so yeah, in a way I was named after both my grandparents. So there are dolls, a Disney character, flowers, razors, sour cream, streets, beauty salons, fashion boutiques with the name Daisy in it, and at the time when my mother gave me my name poeple were naming their dogs Daisy. That has nothing to do with my name, the way others choose to use that name does not define me or who I am. People are mature enough to call me by my name because it is my name and not tease because it is used in other ways. My name doesn't only mean a flower, its origin is from Old English and it mean "day's eyes". Kids will always tease kids about names. There is no name that isn't made fun of. Now I find it so sad that adults are sitting here talking smack about a name. Daisy, not Betsy, why would you name a cow Daisy. I'd call a cow, Fatty, or Spots, but Daisy? A name is a name, animals are animals, and that's it, you name them after what they look like, or after a special person in your family who passed and had a name you don't want to give ur kids, or you name them after someone you hate which is dumb because you would have to say their name over and over and you will love your pet animal. But anyways. I love my name.

I personally have a very low opinion of this name. I think of it more as a cow's name and it sounds more than a bit ditzy on a girl. (No offence intended on anyone who's name is Daisy!)

It's a pretty flower, but not that great a name. I find it sounds too bubbily and over-perky for some reason. I've also met a few dogs named Daisy, so I don't think it's really the best choice.
scarletquillraven  3/23/2007
I think Daisy is a sweet, old-fashioned sounding name. It has a lot of girlish charm and it's not overused these days. I would definitely consider naming my daughter Daisy.

My name is Daisy. I've always been proud to be the only Daisy my friends know, but all of the insane ways they spell it are driving me up the wall! It is Daisy, not Dasiy, Daisie, Dasie, Daisiy, or Daisey.

I can't recall who sings the song, but the song goes like this:
"Her mama named her Daisy, got it from a magazine.
Through the mountains in her white dress she runs chasing me, thought she was faster, 'cause I told her so, even though it wasn't quite the truth."

And then another verse goes like this:
"Six years later we got married, and the day her water broke, the doctor said there's complications, but I still had hope, she was gonna make it, 'cause she told me so, even though it wasn't quite the truth."

Then the last verse is this:
"I thought I'd name her Daisy, in her mama's memory, through the mountains in her white dress, she runs chasin' me, thinks she is faster, 'cause I tell her so, even though it isn't quite the truth."

I like this name, it seems like it would be sweet.

In Little Women, some of the characters call Meg "Daisy". When she has children near the end, she names her little girl Margaret after her but calls her Daisy to avoid confusion with herself.
Pippin  4/15/2008
This name doesn't exactly sound mature or intelligent, and it's popular on animals. It's far too girly, and a woman with this name would have to try hard to prove that she is intelligent despite the name.
slight night shiver  4/21/2008
Sounds like one of those Marvel female characters: Mary-Jane, Pepper, etc, but it's not that bad. Kind of cute. Give it a different spelling, though, and that is one of the tackiest things you can do.

Kate  6/13/2008
I love the name Daisy and think it's even more beautiful when paired with a more traditional middle name like Ruth or Elizabeth. I find its Old English origin and simple rural charm very appealing. I honestly can't see why Daisy would be considered any more 'ditzy' or ultra-girly than other flower names ending in the -y -ee sound (Rosie, Lily etc) - if anything, my perception of Daisy is that it's more tomboyish than the latter names!
Sarita  6/14/2008
I never really 'noticed' the name Daisy until the other day when I read a book, and the little girl in it was called Daisy. I would definitely consider Daisy as a middle name if I ever have a little girl. It goes nicely with most names. Charlotte Daisy, Elizabeth Daisy, Annabelle Daisy. I might even consider it for a first name, after all, its no more 'frilly and girly' than Rosie or Lily (which are beautiful too).

In an online roleplay, my character is called Daisy-Jane. She thinks that Daisy-Jane is too prissy and posh, though, so she goes by DJ. I, on the other hand, think that Daisy is a lovely name. =)
DontDissMadison  7/24/2008
I have to dissagree about the "ditzy" impression of this name. In my personall experience no adults, or even children assumed I was stupid because of my name. The worst name-based teasing I sustained in school was children singing the Daisy Sourcream song at me! As other users have noted, children will make fun of virtually every given name.
As for the name Daisy suggesting weakness, I have also had no personal experience with this. Though being a Scorpio Daisy has probably helped me a lot!

Daisy is an awesome name. My sister is named Daisy. It's horrible that people are talking trash and insulting names that are as beautiful as this one. How would you like it if people made fun of you because of your name. No matter what your name is people are cruel and will always find flaws in it. Daisy is a beautiful flower that may have a negative connotation as a name because people insult it so. Girls named Daisy shouldn't have to prove themselves if they have this name.
― Anonymous User  6/9/2009
I really like the name Daisy and I don't know why people are saying it's an animal name or a woman would find it hard to prover her intelligence 'despite it' - a name doesn't define who you are, and names are not exclusively animal or human names; okay, you probably wouldn't call a human spot or something, but Daisy is just name. A name is a name, no matter what it's used for.

SandSea  2/1/2010
I find Daisy to be a sweet, wholesome, refreshing name. It's such a purely English name - not only an English vocabulary name, but derived from Anglo-Saxon as well.

Unlike some other flower names, it doesn't overload a child with expectations either. Someone called Daisy could be pretty or average or plain, while a name like Rose almost demands that its owner be beautiful in a showy way.

Daisy is nice and unpretentious.

The name itself is pretty like the flower, but sometimes it reminds me of someone who is a bit old fashioned and unpleasant, like a little girl who is a too full of herself. Just my opinion.
Hushpuppy  8/1/2011
It sounds like a ditzy country girl. Some flower names are ok. This is certainly not one of them. Besides, daisies aren't even pretty flowers. It sounds like a name for a horse or maybe a dog but not a human.

There was a movie called "Driving Ms. Daisy" about an eccentric old woman.
GibsonGirl  11/12/2011
As others have already voiced, "Daisy" is about the most stereotypical country-girl that you can get (although, naming trends have slowly been morphed to surname-turned-forenames.)

I suppose that it is doable as a nickname... strictly a nickname. I merely do not find it attractive or professional; except for "Rose" or "Lily," most flower names risk sounding juvenile and uneducated-- which, regrettably, "Daisy" does. I fear that future employers may initially have the same concern.

Ultimately, there are worst names out there, but there are also better ones. I would not lose sleep over the decision of "Daisy," though I would wonder what provoked the conclusion... and for her future; parents truly should consider potential barriers that they may be creating.

How can anyone say anything bad about this name? It is reminiscent of the field of daisies from Alice in Wonderland (a great story I might add) where Alice saw the white rabbit. :) Also, how do flower names sound pretentious or prissy? Flowers are beautiful and feminine. (And why oh why do people keep mentioning cows?)..
threevelvetbullets  9/29/2012
The name Daisy has been growing on me because I imagine a very kind and dreamy little girl when I think of it and daisies are among my favorite flowers. However, I do think it sounds a little juvenile and I have a hard time picturing a woman over twenty with the name Daisy so I would only use it as a nickname or middle name.

It's a pretty and fairylike sort of name, but I've noticed that a lot of girls associated with sexual stuff, like Daisy Duke, seem to have this name. I know she's only fictional, and they probably only used the name for the reason I stated before, to make it seem more appropriate, but it's still kind of off-putting.
Hushpuppy  1/19/2013
Such a fun and happy sounding name. Also I love the nickname "Daze" that could be given just because the "z" sound and the shorten to one syllable makes it sound more edgy and cool.
Rinaeden  2/7/2013
My nickname is Daisy. I am neither "ditzy" nor am I a stereotypical country girl. I am told to be intelligent, unique, and beautiful.

I find Daisy a sweet, simple, pretty name, much more preferable than the dull Hannah, which happens to be my true name. To bear the nickname of my favorite flower pleases me.

This name is quite lovely! It is not a very popular name here in France, however. In my family, it it tradition to name your first born daughter after a flower. I decided to name my little sunshine Daisy Evangeline when the time comes. In my perspective, Daisy is a classic and beautiful name! I love the Great Gatsby, so I like to think of it as an ode. Daisy is short and simple, sweet and kind-like baby girls.

Wow some people are pretty horrible about this name, referencing cows and lack of intelligence! You obviously have never heard the phrase 'a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.' Your name does certainly not define you in this manner and if you feel it does, then you are very sad, judgmental people. I know two people called Daisy and neither of them have been thought to be ditzy, unintelligent or bovine related because of it. It's a beautiful name on which they are often complimented, and I'm confident that they are both proud for it to be their given names.
greendragons  3/18/2015
I was named after Grandma Daisy. When I think of her, I think of true grit, integrity, beauty, tough, loving and a good sense of humour. Most persons, when asked, think of the cartoon Daisy Duck or a rather non-sense reference to cows. Far be it from me, to re-iterate that Daisy is an old English name. I'm guessing the people that use the 'duck' reference are probably brought up on Saturday morning cartoons and McDonald's... reeks of nostalgia, that!

CatFace  8/17/2015
My name is Daisy, and although it is a very cute and pretty name, it really doesn't suit me. I'm in my teens and I feel like if someone heard the name Daisy they would think of someone who is very feminine, cute and cheerful, and I am none of these things. I'm very quiet and anti-social, and I'm definitely more masculine than feminine. I wouldn't recommend this name for a baby just because I feel like it puts too much pressure on the child. It might be cute when they're young but when they get older they might find it quite childish, even if they are feminine and cheerful like the name suggests. And although you may think it's a classic they might just think of it as old fashioned, especially for a teenager.
