Gender: F Origin of Daisy: Diminutive of Margaret or flower name Daisy's Popularity in 2015: #183

Daisy, fresh, wholesome, and energetic, is one of the flower names that burst back into bloom after a century's hibernation. Originally a nickname for Margaret (the French Marguerite is the word for the flower), Daisy comes from the phrase "day's eye," because it opens its petals at daybreak.

Daisy has a colorful literary and pop culture history--as the innocent Daisy Miller in the Henry James novella, as Daisy Buchanan, the hero's object of desire in The Great Gatsby, and as many movie and TV characters, including the sexy barefoot blondes in L'il Abner and The Dukes of Hazzard, as the older Daisy in Driving Miss..., as well as Julia Roberts's character in her breakthrough movie, Mystic Pizza.

Meg Ryan has a daughter named Daisy True, chef Jamie Oliver has Daisy Boo.
