Use Dan if for a diminutive for Daniel; this is too cutesy for my taste.

A solid, classic, dependable name or nickname for Daniel. I like it! It's more casual and relaxed than Daniel, which I've always thought is kinda stuffy.
Imo a wonderful name for boys and girls, it's very bubbly but still sounds intellectual!

Danny Phantom is the reason why I like this name.

Danny is definitely a brilliant name for a boy or a man. It is used a lot in Israel.
Love the name Danny. It is my favourite male name.
Not really a real name in my opinion, but it’s a pretty nice nickname, this is actually my nickname for my name Daniel, so I may be biased here. I’ve seen more Daniels than Daniels who go by Danny, which I’m not too big of a fan considering how formal it sounds to me. Danny and Dan sound more nice to me as nicknames.
Danny is the best name in the world. It my name and everyone loves it.
If you actually did proper research on the name Danny you would see that it is a originally a Hebrew name meaning "Judge" or "My Judge" and that in Israel (the place where the name originated) NOT a short form of Daniel. If you think it is a nickname, keep your comments to your self but don't go misguiding people about the name Danny as it it supposed to be a given name in it's own right.
I really like this name, but I certainly couldn't see it being used on its own. Danny will always be a nickname to me. Short for Daniel or even Dan or some other.
Danny is not originally a diminutive for Daniel. It is a Hebrew name that means 'My Judge' so parents, it should be used as a legal name in its own right.
Danny is also a separate Hebrew name meaning 'my Judge'. Danny is a very common name is Israel and is NOT used for a nickname of Daniel in Israel.
I don't like this nickname at all. It seems too childish and informal as a given name and I don't think it could work well as a full name. Daniel sounds more mature and will age better and Dan is a better nickname than Danny.
I like this name and the editor needs to change the meaning of the name as it is not just a diminutive, it is an Irish form of Daniel. Also in Hebrew this is a variant. It is also a diminutive of Daniel but you can't just say that its only meaning is in Ireland and in Hebrew it is a variant.
Danny is a great name and personally I think this is a great name to give to someone as a full name and not short for anything.

I can't stand this nickname. It sounds so babyish and feminine, and I knew many Dannys who were jerks.

Far too immature for people past the age of 16. Okay, I may be exggerating, but it is quite a childish name, it had better be short for Daniel, not the actual name.

Oh Danny boy
The pipes the pipes are calling
From glen to glen
And down the mountainside
The summer's gone
And all the roses falling
'Tis you, 'tis you must go
And I must bide
But come ye back
When summer's in the meadow
And when the valley's hushed
And white with snow
'Tis I'll be there
In sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy
I love you so.
