DH isn't one to suggest names before the 3rd trimester so i was taken aback when he said he'd really love to call this baby Daisy if it is a girl.
I must admit, it is really growing on me and I'm starting to seriously consider it. However i mentioned it to my mum & sister who immediately told me it sounds like a "country bumpkin" & "redneck hick" name
FWIW, i never mention names to others before the baby is born and I'm wishing i'd never mentioned it now. Looking at my older girls Daisy would really suit them and it fits nicely with our other children's names.
I'm curious to hear other first impressions of the name Daisy?
Too cutesy, folky, country bumpkin?

Daisy is cute - too cute for a child of mine (my pick was Wilhelmina or Ursula for this baby if a girl, so you catch my drift) but not offensive. I still think it would be better as a nickname but really, who gives a toss what others think? You love it, then it's lovely for your little person

I know a 15 year old Daisy and it suits her.
Go for it!

It's cute but is it a good name for a grown woman? Maybe... I don't know. It's NMS.

Love, love, love. Your Mum and sister are wrong!

Too frilly for me.
DD has a friend called Daisy who is 12. It really doesn't suit her imo. I imagine someone quite petite, blonde and dainty.

Pretty, but not my style.

Sorry, it is the first thing I think of when I hear the name Daisy, closely followed by "Daisy daisy give me your answer do, I'm so crazy etc etc".
It is a cute name but not one I could use.
But it's not my baby
if you like it, go for it. In the scheme of different names it is certainly not too out there.

I like it but I do automatically think of Daisy Duke. But thats not a bad thing, I love Dukes of Hazard.

I don't think it's "country bumkin", if anything it makes me think of Mario Brothers. It's not my style, but I don't see anything wrong with it

Not country bumpkin at all. I see Daisy as modern, pretty, funky, sweet, a touch whimsical, characterful..
I really like it , and think it's fine with any age.

Met a beautiful newborn Daisy just yesterday ...
I love it !

I've got a soft spot for this name. I don't know any but Daisy Turnbull is a history teacher in her late 20's and married.

I actually really like this name, but I havent got it on our short list because I struggle to see it as a serious adult name. It does sound a bit cutesy and farm girlish but not neccessarily in a bad way.
Posted 01 March 2013 - 05:20 AM
It's not a name I would use, but I like it.
Posted 01 March 2013 - 05:45 AM
Nothing wrong with it, try not to let others influence your decision if you can. I think it's a cute name and I can see a grown woman using it no problems
Posted 01 March 2013 - 05:47 AM
I think it depends a bit on the surname or it could be too cutesy. Daisy Bell, Daisy Day, Daisy Green...
Daisy Fotherington-Smythe, Daisy Tremorgan, Daisy O'Connell etc....OK.

nms at all.
Posted 01 March 2013 - 07:02 AM
I think it is lovely.
Posted 01 March 2013 - 07:13 AM
I really like it
Posted 01 March 2013 - 07:34 AM
I have a friend called Daisy - it's a beautiful name for a beautiful person (inside and out) like my friend. It's on our girls list if we are blessed with another baby!
Posted 01 March 2013 - 07:50 AM
I abolutely love it, and kind of regret using it on my dog!
There is an adult character Daisy on the TV show Bones, which has helped me see it on a grown woman.

Love it! If you feel it is a bit cutesy though, you could consider calling her Marguerite (it's a type of daisy), with daisy as a nn? This was on our list had ds been a dd.

Could she be Daisy as a NN- so maybe a formal name of Dahlia, or something else- so when she gets older she can use them in different contexts?
