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."

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

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.
