The Serbian/Croatian name is not of the same origin as Daniel - it is derived from the word "dan" meaning "day" and suffix "-ilo" which is found in many Slavic names (and common nouns); Branilo, Borilo, Momčilo, Bajilo... It has been equated with Daniel because it looks and is pronounced similarly hence Daniel has been assimilated in it. Serbs/Croats have Danijel/Danijela which are derived from Daniel.

This is an ugly version of the nice name Daniel. I don't really like it. It also reminds me of racist footballer Danilo Larangeira.

I thought Danilo could make for an interesting middle name until I googled Danilo Larangeira... I always thought skin color issues were mostly an American thing (yes, I'm an American so I can attest to it), but reading about Danilo Larangeira's prejudice towards a fellow Brazilian (which is a VERY mixed culture) lets me think that skin color might be an issue all over.

Anyways, the name is now ruined for me. It has an interesting sound as "duh NEE loh". I have better names on my list anyways.

I don't care about how some racist has that name. I love how it sounds and I love how it's not popular. I named my son Danilo and we get a lot of compliments on the name. Not one person has mentioned him to me and that's probably because people have forgotten about him and have decided not to give him another thought.
