I have always liked the name Daniel because it sounds lovely and handsome. A classmate in my elementary school also has this name. However, this name is too common.
As others have mentioned in the other comments, Daniel is what I would call an 'evergreen' name. Regardless of a man's age, the name Daniel will age gracefully with him. He could be a toddler, child, teen, young adult, adult or elderly gentleman and his name will always suit him.
Daniel is my father's name, but even without that association it has a good sound in my opinion.
Nice strong name with an even stronger biblical association. I love it.

Forget about Daniel the tiger. DANIEL LARUSSO. Ya know, the Karate Kid.
Daniel, is another strong, classic, boys-to-men's name. Yet, modern enough to relax in the Top 20. Even though it's kinda popular right now... but, so what, that's further proof of how great the name is! It's multiracial, multicultural, pronounced/spelled the same in multiple languages, and it has cool nicknames, like Dan, Dani, Danny, Danilo. And, let's not forget the famous "Daniel in the lion's den". Your son will appreciate this amazing name!
Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood.
There's nothing exciting about this name. It doesn't stand out at all.
I love it but it’s getting too common :(
It's plain, it's boring, there's nothing interesting about it! Daniel, like really? Doesn't sound charming, dry, just pure boring!
No waay! I hate it so much! Usually the name of thieves or attackers. Does NOT age well, is waaaaaay too common, and so on. I simply agree with DeeDeeRee.
I disagree with @DeeDeeRee and @Stars123. Daniel doesn't sound dry and boring, and certainly does not sound like the name of thieves/attackers. It ages very well; it sounds cute on a little boy, and strong on an adult man. I also like it as a middle name, and prefer this over David. And, the REASON that this name is so common is because parents all over the world LOVE this name, or else they wouldn't consider naming their son Daniel.
I most emphatically concur with MythicalCreature about this well known moniker. Daniel is a splendid name, in my humble opinion, that carries the rare international advantage of being able to bridge cultural gaps that other names might not or could not. Therefore, I personally rate this name as a 10/10 win.
I love it so much! It goes so well for a middle name and a first name! And I love the association with Daniel and the lion's den!
I hate it, it’s horrible and stupid, I hate my name.
It’s a classic.
Terrible.
Strong name - every time I've mentioned it for a potential child everyone seems to like it as well, it is very common though but obviously for good reason.
Beautiful worldwide name.

My teacher's name, he’s a heartthrob and everyone seems to have a crush on him, no matter if you're grade 7 to grade 10. He is obsessed with the crab from Moana though, which distracts me.
He has a horrid name though. I quite like his middle name ‘Craig’ but I absolutely hate this name, my teacher deserves a better name than this so we called him Shiny. Lol.
Strong, timeless name - love the nickname Danny.

I really dislike this name. The combination of "d" and "a" really makes the whole name sound awkward, and it's very common (not that it's relevant, but it is very common).
I love this name, always have. It is timeless and the I like its meaning. I just hate how people always want to shorten it to Dan or Danny, etc.
A great, strong and timeless name which is unfortunately extremely popular here in England, with virtually every single age group. Most Daniel's that are younger all seem to be well behaved yet when I was growing up (born in 1981) it was seen as a 'naughty boy name' along with Darren, Stephen and Craig, the nickname Danny was always used, which I really like.
I don’t like my name Daniel, it’s so common and boring and people keep on naming their kids Daniel, that’s why I’m changing my name.
In a Spanish accent, sounds like Danielle. Other than that, not a bad name.
Daniel would be a good name for a guy. It means attractive and the ones I met were like a neutral person. They were both very smart people.

I'm sorry, but don't you have to put this name as male and female as in Israel, where this name originated, it is clearly unisex.
In 2018, 25 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Daniel who is registered male with the Social Security Administration. It is the 12th most common male first name for living U.S. citizens.
For some strange reason, when I think of someone named Daniel, I think of a sweet, innocent person. I don't know why, but I just do. Also, if you plan to name your kid this be warned they might become the target of many "Damn, Daniel!" jokes so... Let's hope that joke finally dies by the time they get to elementary.
I heard Daniel is unisex. I hate it on a boy and love it on a girl. Just kidding!

A great name.
Daniel is a fine name, it works good for me, I guess. It’s pretty common and yeah, it may not be unique per say, but it’s a nice, classic name and I’m glad to have it. I think it’s too formal for common usage to me, so I go by Danny which is sweet and boyish to me, which fits who I am. It’s a great name, even if I may be a little biased since it’s my name, I still love it.
Okay, but too common. Go for a name with a similar sound like Danny or David.

If I had a child I would name him something more unique than Daniel. Danny is a great alternative as it is not sooo common, has a different meaning in Hebrew and is originally an independent Hebrew formal first name.
Names like Daniel, William, Michael, and James have always been popular and still are today.
For this reason, I believe Daniel would be best as a middle name so then you can name your kid something a little more unique for their first name. Daniel is actually my middle name :)
But if you really want to, go ahead and name your kid Daniel as a first name. It really is a nice name.
It's a strong name and I like the meaning so much- "GOD IS MY JUDGE". Also, it sounds good when you call Danny... I love it so much.

My name is Daniel and I was actually here to see how many other people where named that. I only know one other guy that has a name that sounds like mine. His name is Donnyho but it sounds exactly the same as mines. I also think it's cool cause my dad actually got my name from the bible and here I am. When I first heard the name, I thought it was boring and weird until I went to school and found out that there was a prophet named Daniel and the meaning of Daniel really surprised me. After learning all of that, I liked my name and liked anyone who had it. That does not mean I don't like people who don't have it either.

Daniel has always been my favorite name. It's handsome, strong, grows with you, can be Danny or Dan without sounding too boyish, and it's universal.
Dan and Danny are separate Hebrew names which are supposed to be used as professional legal names in their own right. Parents if you LOVE the name Dan or Danny please don't make the mistake of calling them Daniel on their birth certificate and thinking you can call them Dan or Danny because everyone will just call them Daniel and you will regret it. I know a lot of parents who have done this who have regretted it.
Danny is not originally a diminutive or nickname for Daniel. It is a Hebrew name that means 'My Judge' so parents, if you want to name your son Danny it should be used as a legal name in its own right. In Israel (where the names Daniel and Danny originated) they are two completely different popular names and Danny is never used as a diminutive or nickname of Daniel in Israel (the place where the two names originated).
Another common name that I love. I don't like the nicknames Dan and Danny though.
Bryan Danielson is a retired professional wrestler who competed under the ring name "Daniel Bryan".

Great name, however it feels like everyone is naming their sons Daniel.
I would definitely name my future son Daniel though.
Boring, boring, boring. Even with the Daniel Radcliffe association, (he strikes me as a very fun, not-boring guy) the name is still boring.
This name is way too popular. Try and name your son something a bit more unique.
I love this name, but it's too popular :/
A famous bearer of this name is Daniel Smith, lead singer of the English Alternative band Bastille.
As someone named Daniel, I have to say I'm intrigued by those saying it's "very hot." That's not what I was expecting, but I won't argue against the confidence boost!

Although honestly, I agree more with the boring/overused assesment. My dad's name is David, so I'm "Daniel" in order to be kind-of named after him. Everyone's dad is named David, so my theory is that lots of people have done that. It's the new David.

And I'm not sure what to think about the "God is my judge" meaning, now that I'm agnostic. Huh...

My favorite part is that it gives me "Leinad" as a cool alias.
Daniel Church. The name Daniel is a famous, strong & powerful name, to the extent that it is used as a name of churches.
Boring, overused name.

This name can fit any age. My 2 year old brother-in-law is named this and is so adorable with this name.
My brother-in-law is named Daniel. He refuses to go by anything but Daniel, and I have to agree, the name sounds better without nicknames (although Danny is pretty cute for a little boy). He refused to let my sister name their son after him, because he felt the name was way too common and overused. It is a nice strong, classic name, but very, very common. I'd suggest maybe using it as a middle name if you really love it.

Daniel Nikolaus Chodowiecki (1726-1801) was a German painter, illustrator and printmaker of Polish ancestry.
I like the name, but I doubt I would ever use it. I've known so many guys named Daniel so I feel that it has been overused.
Adorable is one word to describe this name. I like the meaning as well, Yes, God is the only judge :)

"Niel" could be an acceptable nickname.
When naming a son 'Daniel' parents must be aware of the insane popularity and, in some cases, negative opinions and results by some of this name. It is an otherwise very nice name, though. Danny/Dannie is a marvelous diminutive, in my opinion, as it is a nickname that one would be able to withhold even in adulthood being that it is not over-the-top childish.

Overall, it is a wonderful name as I said before.
I know a lot of guys named Daniel they all have different personalities they aren't all the same. Some quiet, some funny, some athletic. I like this name a lot though. I like the nickname Danny or Dan.
I hate to say this, but I don't really like this name. It's overused, and I hate the babyish nickname Danny. I don't mind Dan, though. Daniel just sounds boring and bland after hearing it so many times.
I do not like this name. The first syllable just doesn't sound nice to me. I like Daniela and Danielle even less.
Used in Croatia as a variant of Danijel. [noted -ed]
This name just sounds like sexy! Hot name!
Daniel Albrecht is a Swiss skier.
I'm not too fond of calling a person "Daniel," but I absolutely love "Danny." So, I would most likely name my son Daniel and then call him Danny. Because Danny as a given name is kind of silly.
I think Danny is great as a full first name as I have known lots of people with this name (not short for anything and it really suits them. Don't feel forced to name your son Daniel just because Daniel is a more used form than Danny, especially if you are not fond of calling your son Daniel. This advice is for a lot of people as people ask me the same things with other names. Also I think the name Danny transitions very well into adulthood.

It is strong yet gentle. I have a younger brother with this name, it is still working for him! (HA HA)
It is I think nice for the person with this name when they get older because they can start going by Danny, or Dan - which sounds a bit more grown up.

I don't think that the meaning of Daniel is "funny". Rather, I think it sounds both defiant - I don't care if people falsely condemn me, only God is my judge - and humble, God is up there judging me, I will try to be good. I prefer the Hebrew pronunciation, "DAH-nee-EL" or "Dah-NEE-el".
I love the name Daniel, I think it's strong and rolls off the tongue nicely. I quite like the abbreviation Dan as well.
