Delphine is such a beautiful name. It sounds sophisticated but has a playful nickname Delphi or a shorter one Del which incidentally means "pretty" in Welsh.
I love how Delphine invokes three nature themes - the dolphin, the delphinium flower, and the colour delphinium blue
This name sounds awesome as a first name but also goes well with lots of names as a middle name. It's not too fashionable and liable to becoming dated, but at the same time it's fresh and spunky - what's not to love?

One of the clones from Orphan Black (which I recommend you watch, it's an amazing show) is named Delphine. That's the first I've heard of this name, but I love it. Not a big fan of the dolphin reference, but I love the flower/color. It's not an obvious floral name, nice. I like Helena and Delphine for twin girls.

Whilst this is a lovely name, it's soured by a less than lovely bearer. Marie Delphine LaLaurie, sometimes known as Delphine LaLaurie and often referred to as Madame LaLaurie. Not a nice woman.

The actual French pronunciation is del-FIN.

The aformentioned Delphine LaLaurie has been immortalized (literally) on the TV show American Horror Story, where she is one of the antagonists.
