    Daisy?

    I've been so in love with Daisy as a fn lately but does it really work as a stand alone name. Is it professional enough to be taken seriously. Is it too Daisy Duck? What would you pair it with? Any thoughts on Daisy?

    My neighbor has a dog named Daisy, so in my mind, it's forever a cute pet's name. Yet, there are literary associations, such as Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby, that can make the name more usable for some people. I personally think it's a little too cutesy and happy-go-lucky to be taken seriously, but that's just my personal taste and opinion. While visiting my grandmother in a hospital a while back, the nurses taking care of her were named Gardenia and Chester. If those names can work well in a hospital, Daisy probably could too.

    I think Daisy should be paired with something more classical.

    Daisy isn't any less professional or more cutesy than Lily or Rose. I would pair it with something along the lines of Olivia, Lydia, Charlotte, Caroline, etc.

    Daisy is a little too flower-y for me. I like it, but I don't love it.

    I agree with this. However, I do think that Rose (and maybe Lily too?) has a much longer history of being used as a given name than Daisy. My first thought is of The Great Gatsby and then of Daisy Miller.
