My Mom actually knew an elderly woman with this name... I wouldn't use it for a first name, but a middle name might be doable.

I love this name. It reminds me of Pleasant and Comfort and Harvest. But as a teacher, I agree with nameberry about the x-rated part. The high school boys would go mad with this one.

I'm so confused... Quincy Jones' middle name is Delight? WHAT????
At first I was like: Why is this even listed as a name? Then after I read the mythological connection I thought: Who would use this name?
Whatever, at least it is a middle name that most people will be unaware of.
