One thing that I love about this name is that it reminds me of dolphins!

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?

Delphine Seyrig (1932-90) was a French film star - her middle name was Claire.

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.

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.

I love the name Delphine! I love how it's French and I love how this name makes me think of dolphins! =D.

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

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