- It's a lighthearted name that isn't too "cutesy." If you want something more sophisticated, it's been used for years as a nickname for Margaret or Marguerite, because the French word for the daisy flower is "marguerite." I love the idea of using it as a short form.
- Think The Great Gatsby.
- so fresh and light. Beautiful for a woman or a child.
- I love this name, so feminine, elegant and old fashioned. I think it needs a revival.
- It's so simple and sunny and pure, like Daisy from "The Great Gatsby" It has an eternal charm to it.

- Daisy Jane: This is a really cute name that would fit an adorable little girl, she could drop the Jane if she wished as well. I remember hearing this name in an old song, wish I knew what the name of it was!

Daisy was first used as a name on its own at the end of the 19th century, when other flower names like Violet, Lily, and Rose came into fashion. Before that it was used as an occasional nickname for the name Margaret-- coming from the fact that the French word for the daisy flower is "Marguerite." It may also have been influenced by the fact that Maisie was also used as a short form of Margaret (at least in Scotland).
The word 'daisy' is from Old English, meaning "day's eye," referring to the fact that daisies open in the sunlight to reveal their yellow center, and then close up again at night.
