WOW! I love the name Darby, personally it means wisdom, strength, and creativity, but that is a personal preference. All my life I have never met someone named Darby, people make fun of my name saying it is a boy's name, but deep down I LOVE how everyone else got named the most common name ever like MADDIE, EMMA, OR TAYLOR. At school there isn't fifteen other kids with my name, so if your name is Darby like ME, don't be afraid, flaunt it because your name means free of envy of if you go onto Urban Dictionary the top definition of Darby is the coolest person in the world, the center of the world and is sooooo cool, although that was put on by someone named Darby. When I was little I wanted to be named Grace but then I went to my church group and two people there were named Grace, so I love the name Darby and I'm never ever going back!

This is the name of Dee Dee's favorite doll on the cartoon Dexter's Laboratory. She is a parody of Barbie.

Darby is the name of Junior Asparagus' character in 'Veggietales: The Wonderful Wizard of Ha's'. It's a bit of a stealth reference to Disney's 'Darby O'Gill and the Little People' (1959), as Darby's father (Dad Asparagus) is referred to as "Farmer O'Gill," which would make Darby's full name Darby O'Gill.

Sounds completely masculine to me. I like it. Although, the first thing I think of may always be that minor character on Moesko Island in The Ring. XD;

I am a Darby born in 1996. I'm 18 and people love my name. On my mother's side the last name Darbie was in the blood line. When my mother was 8yrs old she fell in love and told everyone she was going to name her first daughter Darby with a "y". My father joined the army when he was 17. His first recon team mission in Lithuania was called "Recon Team Darby" he fell in love with the name and told everyone his first daughter's name was going be Darby. Many years later, a 28 yr old my mom and a 38 yr old my dad met and figured out they were having a girl. It was such a coincidence that when they were both much younger and didn't even know each other they had the same first girl name stuck in their heads. I am part of like .002% of teen Darby's in this generation. I love my name. I get cool nicknames, Darb's, the Darbster, Darbasaur, I like it. And I enjoy meeting other people with such a unique name! Everyone's got a reason behind their given name and I love mine. I wouldn't change my name for the world!

I like Darby more than Darbie probably. Girl or boy.

For a boy I also have the strangest obsession with the name Barbie.

Darby McGill, Sean Connery's character in a very early Disney live action/cartoon animation blend called Darby McGill and the Little People.

It's actually Darby O'Gill and the Little People. Sean Connery's character is Michael McBride and Albert Sharpe plays Darby O'Gill.

Darby is the little red haired girl in the My Friends Tigger & Pooh show. It is hinted that she might be Christopher Robin's little sister.

I first heard this name from watching 'My Friends Tigger & Pooh' when I was little so this name makes me think of her. :3 I wasn't really happy that Christopher Robin was replaced with Darby as Christopher Robin can NEVER be replaced, he is MEANT to be there with Pooh and the others. (I don't hate Darby or anything, I just really love Christopher Robin.)

And @phanny3282 who says "It is hinted that she might be Christopher Robin's little sister": I would just like to point out there wasn't really any hints in the show (Darby gave him a friendship bracelet, they could just be friends). It's just suspected by some (not all) Disney fans that she may be Christopher Robin's younger sister, though it was never confirmed.

I think Darby is a really cute name for a girl. ^w^

Darby Crash, real name Jan Paul Beahm, was the vocalist for one of the greatest L.A punk bands, The Germs.

I'm a Darby, female, born in 1943, USA. I love the name! Years ago I did a bit of research on it's origins and discovered that one of the meanings, in old Celtic, is freeborn, or more elaborately, born free of envy. I do believe I also saw that it is related to Jeremiah, but I do not remember the source. The English meaning is deer park. I am lucky to have married a man of Italian heritage who's name means vegetable farmer!

I find the name ugly, and it sounds utterly masculine to me. The name would be horrible on females, even the somewhat masculine ones. Darcy sounds feminine to me, though, but this name reminds me of the masculine name Darwin, which is actually a pretty good name. Somehow this one just makes me think of very annoying and snobby Brits.

I have met 3 Darby's. 2 spelled their name Darby, and the other Darbie. I much prefer Darbie.
Patricia Underwood  2/6/2008
I know two Darbys. Although I prefer the spelling Darbie I still like this name a lot.

Darby Carmichael, main character in the book Darby by Jonathon Scott Fuqua. Very good book, I recommend it.

I love the sound of the name Darby. Boy or girl I am not sure about though. I kind of lean towards girl.

I'm a female Darby, and have discovered that there are some pretty bizare meanings of the name.
Darbies are manacles.
A Darby is both a large trowel for leveling concrete and a tool for leveling ceilings.
However, my mother named me after the Abraham Darby Rose. I think I prefer that namesake. Being named after manacles would be rather weird.

This is the heroine's name in "The Pelican Brief", a book by John Grisham.

This is also a kind of large trowel for levelling concrete.
wiswina  5/27/2005
The Celtic usage meaning is "free man".
