There is a very beautiful (and sad) folk song, Danny Boy. It is about a young man who goes to fight and his lover, who pledges her undying love. Then, waiting for him, she dies. I would not hesitate to name a child Daniel, although Danielle is very popular now.

Love love love the name Danny, hate hate hate the name Daniel.

Daniel is a nice name. I prefer Danny to be a short form of Daniel rather than on its own.

For some reason, lots of Korean people have this as their English name. Don't know why.

Dan is a Vietnamese name meaning "yes", so maybe that has something to do with the Dannys over there.

There is an Irish ballad titled "Danny Boy". It's fairly famous.

Oh Danny boy
The pipes the pipes are calling
From glen to glen
And down the mountainside
The summer's gone
And all the roses falling
'Tis you, 'tis you must go
And I must bide
But come ye back
When summer's in the meadow
And when the valley's hushed
And white with snow
'Tis I'll be there
In sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy
I love you so.

I think this is a very cute name for little Daniels, however I don't like it as a full name. It seems incomplete.

The lead male in the musical "Grease" is bad-boy Danny Zuko, who falls in love with leading lady Sandy Dumbrowski. In the original 1972 Broadway musical, he was portrayed by Barry Bostwick, who received a Tony Award nomination for the role. In the popular 1978 film adaption, the character was portrayed by John Travolta. Many other stars have also performed the role, including Richard Gere, Patrick Swayze, and Treat Williams.

Far too immature for people past the age of 16. Okay, I may be exggerating, but it is quite a childish name, it had better be short for Daniel, not the actual name.

I can't stand this nickname. It sounds so babyish and feminine, and I knew many Dannys who were jerks.

Danny Jones is in Mcfly and Mcbusted.
shauna779  8/10/2015
Danny is a great name and personally I think this is a great name to give to someone as a full name and not short for anything.
abcdef82ksj  4/6/2016
I like this name and the editor needs to change the meaning of the name as it is not just a diminutive, it is an Irish form of Daniel. Also in Hebrew this is a variant. It is also a diminutive of Daniel but you can't just say that its only meaning is in Ireland and in Hebrew it is a variant.

I don't like this nickname at all. It seems too childish and informal as a given name and I don't think it could work well as a full name. Daniel sounds more mature and will age better and Dan is a better nickname than Danny.

Danny is also a separate Hebrew name meaning 'my Judge'. Danny is a very common name is Israel and is NOT used for a nickname of Daniel in Israel.
― Anonymous User  12/23/2016
Danny is not originally a diminutive for Daniel. It is a Hebrew name that means 'My Judge' so parents, it should be used as a legal name in its own right.
― Anonymous User  12/23/2016
I really like this name, but I certainly couldn't see it being used on its own. Danny will always be a nickname to me. Short for Daniel or even Dan or some other.
― Anonymous User  1/15/2017
If you actually did proper research on the name Danny you would see that it is a originally a Hebrew name meaning "Judge" or "My Judge" and that in Israel (the place where the name originated) NOT a short form of Daniel. If you think it is a nickname, keep your comments to your self but don't go misguiding people about the name Danny as it it supposed to be a given name in it's own right.
