The name Daisy is a girl's name of English origin. Daisy is ranked #170 on our popularity charts and is often added to lists like Gorgeous Flower Names for Babies and discussed in our forums with posts like "Drop Your Favorite: GIRLS!".

From the experts:

Daisy, fresh, wholesome, and energetic, is one of the flower names that burst back into bloom after a century's hibernation. Daisy is now second only to Delilah among most popular girl names starting with D. 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.
