This name is really outdated in France, I don´t really understand why it´s still popular in the USA.

I LOVE this name! It is elegant, timeless and dreamy.

One of my friends is called Danielle and she pronounces it Dan-yell. She hates it when people say Danny-elle. It's really popular in England as well.
-- katie XX  8/27/2005
I have a friend named Danniell, spelt exactly like that. She hates her name because of how it's spelt, she thinks her mum is crazy. It's just pronounced: "Danny-L". Nicknames are the same, just Danni and such.
-- Sneasel  9/3/2005
I love the name "Danielle," and wish it was my name. Although, to be honest, my name is actually spelled that way, but my father insisted that it be pronounced "Da-nell" rather than "Dan-yell." Quite frustrating. I've gone my whole life through correcting the pronunciation of my name. If you like the name Danielle; or any name, for that matter, just spell it the most commonly accepted way. Trust me, your child will thank you for it. I decided to start telling people that my name was "Dan-yell" when I turned fifteen. Twenty years later, I still do.

Danielle is a very pretty name. Before I met my friend, Danielle, I thought it meant faith and kindness. But now I think it means bold, strong and funny. My friend Danielle is just like that. It seems like she's changed the meaning.
-- Sori  10/12/2005
Someone said above that they thought that Danielle ment Faith and Kindness and now they think it means bold, strong and funny. Well I hate to burst your bubble but it actually means "God is My Judge" and I don't think that a personality can be reflected in a name or meaning. Danielle can be pronounced Dan ee yell OR Dan yell but the former is often spelt with two 'N' s. :) That's all I know, hope it helps someone.

To me, this name is as beautiful as the special girl who has it. It represents intelligence with beauty and gentleness with strength. It is both exquisite and soulful all at once.
-- Jared  12/29/2005
This is my name Danielle. I have always loved it! Except when I was younger and people would call me Danny! Now I think Danni is kinda sexy! And yes some would call me Dan-E-yell. I hated that! It reminded me of Antie-M on Wizard of Oz! Dan-yell is the correct way to say it in the states and Dan-yull is the male version. :o)

This is my name and I love it. I pronounce it Dan-E-L and it really annoys me when people pronounce it Dan-yell or Dan-e-yell, there is no Y in it! (I'm from England).
-- Danielle23  1/29/2006
My name is Daniëlle, pronounced Dani-ye-lluh in Dutch and some nicknames are mostly Daan, Daantjuh, Jelle or Lelle. Especially the last one (Lelle) is most used by little kids who can't speak out the name.
-- D-tjoe  2/21/2006
My name is Danielle and I love my name. I pronounce it "dan yell" but teachers enjoy calling me danell which is really annoying, anyways my nickname is Dani which I never really did like until recently. I actually think the name Danielle is quite punk.
-- dani_08  3/5/2006
Common. Uninspired. Boring. Billions of "Dani's", "Danielle's". Name lacks personality or character. Bland. Nondescript. Doesn't sound particularly beautiful.
-- Anonymous User  4/3/2006
Okay, my name is Danielle and at first I HATED my name! But now, I love it! And finding out the meaning (God is my judge) really made me mad, I'm agnostic! And in case you don't know that means I don't have a religion, I like the whole name definition but not when the definition is a statement rather than a personality trait. :(
-- danielle16  4/7/2006
This is a beautiful name. It is not a girly girl name but it is not a rebel name either. It is a simple name that has a lot of meaning for anyone who is named Danielle!
-- Anonymous User  4/18/2006
I think Danielle is a beautiful timeless name. Strong but yet still feminine. Not a fad name but a name that has withstood the test of time.

My middle name is Danielle, named after an author. It is a rather lovely name. Kinda long, but it works.

My best mate in the whole world's name is Danielle. I really like it as it can be shortened easily to Danni, Danny, Dann (with 1 or 2 'n's!) Although she has discovered that Daniella means "little Danielle" and prefers that name, I still really like the name and recommend it to any mother of a sweet little girl!
-- chimocho  7/10/2006
My name is Danielle, and as my best friend Chimocho says above, it is a great name! Danni, Dani, Danny, Dann, Ellie, Danni the Knickalord Kippa even (don't ask, I have weird friends,) it is a name that can be used for georgeous people around the world, and is beautiful, and ummm... beautiful!

PS - People calling you Dann-ee-lle IS really annoying - spare us the heartbreak and just stick to Dann-yell.

My middle sister is called Danielle. When I was younger, I thought it was a bit cheeky and tomboyish, like my sister. Now I think its elegant and enchanting, the woman my sister has become.

My name is Danielle and I used to hate it. Primarily because it was long and there are so many other people that have it. I also used to hate when people called me Danni but I think it's kind of sexy now.

My name is Danielle, and it's pronouced dan-yell. I think that's the way most Canadians pronounce it. My name being pronounced dan-e-elle doesn't bother me because it's hardly noticable when talking to someone else (maybe it's my accent). Anyways, what drives me be crazy is when people accidentally call me Daniel. That happens a lot.

This is my name. I hate it, I wish my name was prettier. My name is really common I wish that I had a unusual name. I don't know much about my name only that it's very popular in my school. I hate it, people always spell it wrong on birthday cards and things like: Daniell, Daniel, Danniel, Danil, it's so annoying no matter how many times I say it's wrong people still spell it like that. I spell my name Danielle, my grandad wanted me to be called Daniellea which I think would be better more feminine.
-- danielle-jane-hayes  9/9/2007
I love the name Danielle, pronounced Dan yell. I’ve never heard this name pronounced Dan ee elle before reading the comments on this website, and I don’t like that pronunciation of the name. In Canada, particularly French Canada where this name is most popular, it’s pronounced Dan yell. In French, both the masculine and feminine version of this name are pronounced the same (“Dan yell”), but are spelled differently to distinguish between a male and female. Personally, I love this name for a woman, and have always wished that this were my name.
-- TiffanyS  9/26/2007
Danielle is for people who think that a name is beautiful just by virtue of the fact that it's French. And then there's the awful masculine nickname, "Danny."
-- queenv  9/29/2007
My best friend's name, she pronounces it Danny-elle. I think a really cute nickname for this is Danni but she hates it when I call her that. I used to hate this name but it's grown on me since I met my friend Danielle. Still not one of my faves though.

My name is Danielle and I don't really like it. When I meet people, they call me different things. Most call me Danielle though (minus the few who call me Dani or Dan). I kind of always hated not having a nickname and honestly, half the time when I introduce myself as Danielle, I feel like I'm saying the wrong name and it doesn't fit me.

-- Patricia Underwood  3/7/2008
Okay, my name is Danielle. Now, honestly, there's a little fight to pronuniciation. It can be Dan-EE-elle, OR Dan-yell. Mine is the former. For those who have Dan-ee-ell-Uh, people I know who then spell that Daniella. Just saying.

As for nicknames - for a laugh, I insist that my nickname is Dani, not Danni, Danny or Dan. But I don't mind Dandan.
-- 00Jayd-Dani  6/8/2008
Danielle is my best friend's name, but she prefers Dani, people are constantly spelling her nickname wrong which is strange because it's right from the name, rather than Danny. Otherwise it's a very pretty name.
-- Anonymous User  7/14/2008
My name is Danielle. Pronounced Dan knee Elle. Danni for short. I added the 'n' becayse Dani's a bit short. I hate it when people call me 'Daniella' instead. I'm not fussed by any other ways it is said by others. My mum said she called me 'dani YELL' because I cried a lot as a baby. Really she loved the name and used it for herself as there were too many Carole's. I don't like that it means 'god is my judge'. My partner says I'm dreamy but not elegant or timeless.
-- crypx  10/7/2008
This is my name, and I like it! I pronounce it "Dan-yell" and my nickname is Dani (I think that is a more feminine spelling so I don't care that it sounds masculine). I do find it quite annoying when my friends try to spell my name and it comes out "Daniel". That's the MALE VERSION. Another thing I like about this name is that I don't encounter other Danielles too often. There is only one person my age with this name in my school so there is never much confusion as say someone with the name "Megan" (with various spellings included) who has to deal with the 200 or so other Megan's just in her grade.

As for the other pronunciations, "Dan-E-L", etc. I never really considered those pronunciations, but I think they're pretty interesting.
-- Daenerys  11/28/2008
This name is so overrated, it is so ugly. It just reminds me of a boy/man. This name is so ugly I cannot stress that enough. :(
-- Tiffany1994  2/10/2009
This is my middle name, spelled Danyle. My mom once joked she was apologizing for my very common first name (Brittany) when she spelled it that way, giving me something more unique. I think it looks nice and dignified spelled this way, but I get asked if it was my mom's maiden name a lot.
-- britto08  2/21/2009
As Danielle originates from Daniel, it means in Hebrew 'God is my Judge'. Daniel was a prophet in the Old Testament of the Holy Bible who was given interpretations of dreams by God and prophesied many things about the end of the world. He was a very wise man and also had encounters with angels. This can all be read in the book of Daniel, Old Testament. Both Daniel and Danielle mean, in spiritual terms 'one who sits in the courts of the Lord'.
-- Danielle-lovedbyGod  2/26/2009
The name Danielle always bothered me growing up. If a teacher didn't know me or my face, while calling role they would pronounce it Daniel (DAN-YUL). Everyone would giggle followed by an embarrassed correction and apology. I am not a boy. I pronounce my name DAN-YELL. I do not spell it any special way or try to put an extra something in it. It's a good name, now that I'm older I appreciate it and its rarity. It means "only god is my judge" and is derived from Hebrew. Everything about my name goes nicely with my astrological sign and with my personality. Coincidence? I think not. I'm not religious, or superstitious, I just know everyone has a name for a reason. I like mine.

-- sddorme  7/7/2009
Danielle derives from the masculine Hebrew name Daniel, which is the name of a prophet of both the Hebrew Bible and Christian Old Testament of the Bible. It is also my name, and I have always appreciated my mother's choice. It was chosen because it was my maternal great-grandfather's middle name. I prefer the pronunciation that uses the tilde (Spanish n) or Dan-YEL as some people have typed.
-- Anonymous User  11/11/2009
I wonder why people post ignorant, insulting opinions on a site such as this. If a name does not suit your taste, don't use it for your own children. Daniel and Danielle are good, solid names with honorable meanings in my opinion. It is my name and my middle name means "blessed." I translate my full name to mean "One who sits in the courts of the Lord [and is] blessed."

This is my name. I was born in 1994 when it was #20 in the US and #9 in my state. I know about five or six other kids my age with this name, but I actually really like it.
Most of my friends use the nickname Dani/Danni, but I always introduce myself as Danielle. When I was a kid people called me Daniellie Vanillie which is cute. I've always pronounced it as "Dan-yell", but I think "Dan-ee-ell" seems sort of cool. Problem is in my accent the syllables sort of blur together anyway so it sounds pretty much the same.
All in all, I think the name Danielle is elegant and sweet. When I was younger I preferred Daniela, which was almost my name (apparently Daniela Maria is too Italian paired with last name, so I'm Danielle Marie), but I've really grown to love Danielle. The meaning may be a little boring, but it is also sort of inspirational.
I love the name Danielle!

I have a cousin with this name, although her name is spelled Dannielle, not Danielle. Personally, I think Danielle is the better spelling. I believe it is far too common of a name, and I like the nickname Dani instead.

I don't like the name because of how it's pronounced (Dan-Yell). Danika is better and I love Daniel for a boy.

I was born in 1994 as well and in my country the name can be pronounced as DAN-ee-yell or DAN-yell, doesn't really make a big difference, its basically the same. I love my name. The most common nickname for Danielle, is Dani pronounced DAN-ee.
-- NiNja09  9/25/2012
My middle name is Danielle. I hate it! It sounds too much like Daniel (so much I thought my middle name was Daniel when I was a toddler) and, if you think about it, the first part is Dan. (Boys name) The final part is yell, which isn't good anytime, anywhere or in a name. The spelling is nice though.
-- Melys11  12/17/2012
Even though the name Danielle is considered really 80's/90's in the US, it's more associated with middle aged women in France. It's height of popularity was in the 1950's. This is very similar in the case of Nicole, which was also very popular in the 40's and 50's but didn't quite catch on in the US until the 70's.
-- bonjour_mon_joli  8/25/2013
My sisters name. I like to call her yella. Not really a fan of the nickname Dani, but sometimes I do call her that.
-- blueeyesparkle  9/12/2013
I don't like the name Danielle (even though it is my name), it was forced on me by my grandparents because my granddad is known as Daniel even though their son is Daniel.

I was born in 1990 and it was a very common name here in the UK. We pronounce it as Dan-yell or depending on the city and accent you are from some pronounce it as dan-e-yell ( I hate this version as well).

Friends call me Dani which I suppose I can live with.

But all in all, I hate it.
-- xxstarlightxx  9/21/2013
I used to really hate my name because teachers would call me "Daniel", and everyone would laugh and ask if I was a boy. Now basically everyone just calls me "Danni" or "Dan", except my dad who likes to call me "Darnell".
-- danielle420  4/23/2014
I love my second name and it's is Danielle (Sofia Danielle) and I pronounce it as Deyn-yel and here in the Philippines, we pronounce names like
Dan-yel for the names like Daniel and with a slang pronunciation for Danielle (Deyn-yel) and just like what I've said, I really love it. For the girls in the Philippines, Danielle is not so popular as a first name but I really like the originality of it even though a ton of girls and boys have it.
I got my bubbly, friendly, religious and girly personality from Danielle (I think) and Danielle is not for the faint of heart. It would be a good name for girls.
My name is Sofia Danielle and because I have a classmate with a same name as mine (Sofia too), some of my classmates call me by surname or Danielle as it is. Not Dani, not Yielle, just Danielle.
