Princess Hockey Says:


I'd never considered it as a name until coming across it watching a clip from The Voice Australia, with one of the judges being Delta Goodrem. I gotta say, while it's hard to ignore the airline connection (I'm in the US) it's kind of an awesome name.

This name just reminds me of that episode in friends when Monica sings Delta Dawn on stage and everyone can see her boobs lol

Azi*Cwater Says:


Would this work as a nickname for Adelaide?

Cormorant Says:


I was almost named this.
Reminds me of Delta P (change in pressure). The term is commonly used to refer to the "delta P hazard" in water, which can lead to death. So if you choose this name- make sure your last name doesn't start with P!

beachbear Says:


LOL. Delta Airlines was the first thing I thought of.

beachbear Says:


Welcome to Delta Airlines! It's also a faucet and half/a third of a sorority.

eveyalecia Says:


I vastly prefer Delpha. Delta reminds me of the airline first and foremost, and also sounds too close to words "belt" and "welt." Altogether not very pretty in my opinion.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


I do, but that's because they're the only airline I've flown with. I do like the name Delta, though. Honestly! :)

hufflepuff Says:


I don't think of the airline at all, so yes. Delta is quite pretty.

Shaebaby Says:


Delta Dawn whats that flower you have on? Could it be a faded rose from days gone byyy..♪♪

servals_ Says:


Lovely name but can't use it as it rhymes with "belta". Where i live this would be like a joke name :(

SoDallas3 Says:


I think Delta is beautiful. Being Australian, I think of Delta Goodrem first and then I think of the Mississippi Delta.

headintheclouds Says:


I don't think of the airline at all in association to this name- then again I'm not American. My first association is river deltas, then the scientific/mathematic term of delta, which means "change in", as previous commenter said. Then my mind would go to the Aussie singer Delta Goodrem.

It's a short and sweet, simple and pretty name, I like it :)

Guest Says:


If it wasn't for the airline connection and the sorority (and just being the letter D in general) I guess I'd be open to it. It reminds me of Philadelphia!

Delta Vines Says:


"Delta" means "change", and is used in many scientific writings as such.

Is there any way that this name can get away from the airline connotation? Please, please let the answer be yes
