I like this name a lot, even though I've recently met a woman with this name whom I really dislike, and it's not really often for me to dislike people that much, so I hope I won't have bad associations with this name. Well I mean I already do, but so far I still can appreciate its beauty. I think I prefer Daniella or Danielle a bit more, or very similar sounding but of course not etymologically related Daniela, and I dislike most of the nicknames for this name. But still, I do like it. When I try to imagine a Daniela - like just a random person with this name, trying not to be biased by that strange lady I know - I see a woman who can be somewhere in between her 20's-40's, I can easily imagine a woman with this name both as young and middle-aged. She has long, very dark hair, dark complexion and skin, and big, dark, almond-shaped eyes. I can imagine her being any height. But she's very attractive and knows it. She can be a little bit vain, and has a very high self-esteem, sometimes too high. She likes flirting, knows everything about make up and cosmetics and likes to be beautiful and in the centre of attention. Sometimes she likes a bit of drama, especially if she creates it itself, it's because her imagination is very vivid, she's intelligent and has great acting skills, and just needs an outlet for them plus craves attention. She is quite egocentric and might sometimes appear egoistical, but she's not cold-hearted and uninterested in others, just too absorbed with herself at times. She has a deep feeling that she is a very special person, like that she has some special mission in the world, or is better than anyone else in some particular sphere, usually either intellectual or regarding her appearance. She's very sensitive and it's easy to hurt her feelings, and she doesn't forgive easily. She feels everything very intensely and is often rebellious. She's an extrovert but has phases when she wants only her own company and when she retreats to her inner world. She has a good sense of humour and can be a social butterfly if she wants, however she might be a bit moody, and complain easily. She's a pessimist by nature, and needs someone who would support her and love her unconditionally. If she feels it's worth it, she's capable of unusual sacrifices or heroic deeds, but normally she doesn't have very high demands for herself. She is artsy and doesn't like too much discipline or regime, she's quite a hedonist. That's just how I imagine a person with this name, not how I think all Danielas are or should be.

In Poland, overall, Daniela isn't a very common name that you'd hear regularly, not quite as popular as Daniel is, yet it's not unheard of. Daniela's name day is on 10th December, or possibly on one of Daniel's name days as well. Some potential nicknames include Danielka, Danielcia, Dana, Danka, Danusia, Ela, Elka, Elunia... Last year (2018) there were 23 girls born in Poland who were given the name Daniela, so the name was on the 221th place in the girls' ranking. There were also 3 Daniellas, as opposed to 713 Daniels among the boys.

This is my big sister's name. I love this name it's so pretty and fits my sister perfectly she is like a model and this name adds to her awesome personality. I would give this as a middle name for my kid, but not as a first name because I already have a problem with my family and names so closer together, and it gets very confusing. But for some reason this name reminds me of a flower.

I'm surprised that Daniela isn't more popular, considering how pretty it is, but it's a good thing.

In Italy Daniela was overused in the third quarter of the 20th century. It was the 4th most popular name in Rome in 1951 (behind Patrizia, Paola and Annamaria), the 3rd in 1956 (behind Patrizia and Paola), the 5th in 1961 (behind Patrizia, Paola, Antonella and Cinzia), the 3th in 1966 (behind Alessandra and Paola) and the 10th in 1971. Nowadays it is not very popular.

A customer I waited on has a daughter named Daniela (Dan-yay-luh). I think it's a pretty name. Dani would be a cute nickname. Daniela is a classy name & is a nice alternative to Danielle.

Though in German "ie" is normally pronounced like a long "ee" in most words, the name Daniela is not pronounced that way. I guess it is because of the origin of the name: Hebrew, not German (The name would be spelled Danila, without the e, if you pronounced it as it is said on this website.)
It is very similar to the Polish pronunciation.
Daniela in German is pronounced "Dahn-ye-lah". The first a is like the u in the word stuck (I couldn't think of a better example, sorry). The emphasis lies on the e (Dahn-yE-lah. The last syllable is pronounced like you would in the Enlgish pronunciation of the name. [noted -ed]

I think the name Daniela is strange and delicate. I'm really sorry that in the last years the popularity of the name is so big. It would be more nice if the name was a rare one. :) But I guess many people like it. It's a beautiful name for a girl. ; My opinion is that 'Daniel', 'Dan' or 'Dana' doesn't sound so good as 'Daniela'. It's a complex name.

Well, as it's my name I won't say anything bad about it. The only thing I dislike is, that it's just a little bit too common for my taste. DANIELA seemed to be "THE NAME" for parents giving it to their children when I was born. But, after all, it could have been worse...
