I love it! It sounds classy, historical and princessy, which makes a name perfect. Delphi is also a good association as Apollo used to be my favorite god.

The name Delphine just like name Delphina, the word dolphin, the delphinium flower, and the city of Delphi all have the same root of delphys meaning womb. In that way the name Delphine is connected to the word dolphin but the name doesn't mean dolphin. I personally love this name and the name Delphina; they make me think of Greece, dolphins, delphinium flowers, and the beautiful round bellies of pregnant ladies. Delphine also makes me think of France since it is a French name.

I used to work with someone named Delphine. The name is stunning, and I also love Delphina.

A beautiful, classy name. Too bad so many goofy people associate it with "dolphin," which had nothing to do with this lovely French name.

Germaine deStael's first major novel, "Delphine", was published in 1802. Although she insisted the intent of the novel was not political, Napoleon did not agree and banished her from France for it.

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

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.

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.

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?
